There’s a 20 year gap in the middle and to be frank, it’s not missed in the least. Todd sings the classic tracks as if they are and have always been his and his style suits the band so well it’s not surprising he’s been so well accepted by fans around the world.
It’s been a turbulent few years in the Queensrÿche camp. With the well-publicised split with original vocalist Geoff Tate and the bitter fallout that followed now behind them, the Seattle band are entering a new chapter in their three-decade career. Supporting the release of acclaimed new album ‘Condition Hüman’ – their second with vocalist Todd La Torre – the five-piece have hit the road in the USA with The Scorpions for a run of sold-out dates in some of the country’s biggest arenas. We caught up with bassist Eddie Jackson in Rosemont, Illinois to discuss the new album, the highs and lows of Queensrÿche history, and the band’s plans for 2016. Walking the thin line: Eamon O’Neill.
Tonight’s bill proves, if nothing else, that Camden was made for live music. Three fantastic bands all finding a resurgence in their careers and clearly loving every sweat soaked metal minute of it.
