Queensrÿche first burst onto the music scene in 1982 with the release of their self-titled 4 song EP Queensrÿche. They very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With the follow up first full length album The Warning in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of Rage For Order, Queensrÿche continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 1980s. In 1988 the band turned out yet another monumental album Operation: Mindcrime, which would go on to become one of the top-10 bestselling concepts records of all time, and set the stage for continued sold-out performances around the world. With the release of the critically-acclaimed and commercially-successful Empire in 1991, the band earned multiple Grammy Award nominations and won the MTV “Viewer’s Choice” award for the #1 chart topping hit “Silent Lucidity”. During the next 10 years, the band continued to release albums and tour the world to sold-out audiences. Queensrÿche has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and have continued to break new ground and push their creative process.
Skid Row – The first rebellion started in 1986. New Jersey kids, punk and metal attitude, determined to conquer the world. All for one, banded together with single-minded purpose. The battlefield was the stage, the songs their arsenal in an “us-against-them” musical coup d’état. Top Ten singles. Gold and multi-platinum sales. No. 1 on the Billboard album chart. The world was theirs, the rebellion won, until there was nothing left to fight for – so they fought each other. Following an ill-advised South American tour in 1996, the band was finished. But the core camaraderie never died.
Now, Skid Row is gearing up to record the final installment of the United World Rebellion trilogy. Classic dual-guitar teams are a key component of great songs – K.K. Downing and Glenn Tipton. Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson. Dave Murray and Adrian Smith. Add Snake and Scotti Hill to that list. That sound is rambunctious exuberance. They got older, but Skid Row never really grew up. United World Rebellion – Chapter Three is still the youth gone wild, their musical spark still burning gasoline.
Tickets to Queensrÿche and Skid Row are $40 and $50 plus tax and applicable fees for reserved seating. A standing room only ticket is available for $25 plus tax and applicable fees.
