Queensryche Get ShipRocked, Tour All Summer

“We’ve never played on a cruise ship before!” exclaims Queensrÿche singer Geoff Tate of the band’s upcoming gig on ShipRocked in November. “We’ve played on flat bed trucks in the middle of deserts, huge soccer stadiums with 200,000 people, clubs, radio stations, festivals – but never a cruise. This is something new for us and we’re really excited.”

Queensrÿche are known for massive stage productions. The progressive band uses film, lights, audio cues and sometimes extra musicians and actors to bring songs alive for fans. New technology means Queensrÿche fans are in for a very different experience during the band’s summer tour in support of ‘American Soldier.’

Geoff Tate gave Noisecreep a little insight on the tour. “We’re doing three suites of music. The new album ‘American Soldier,’ ‘Rage for Order,’ and ‘Empire.’ We’ve been rehearsing all the songs from each record. We’re going to change the set every night,” says Tate. “For people that come to multiple shows, they’ll get to hear all the songs from those albums. Recently we got a new technical system that allows us to change things from a visual standpoint very quickly. That’s pushing us in the direction to change the set. We’re finding the new technology allows us to make the changes very quickly – in the past it would have taken a whole day to move things around. I’m looking forward to it.”
