(antiMusic) Members of Queensryche were arrested this weekend at the Amsterdam airport for reportedly smuggling illegal firearms, according to their official website. The site reports, "details are a bit sketchy at the moment, but word just came in moments ago from Geoff Tate. More info as it becomes available... stay tuned!'
The band is in the midst of playing several European music festivals. On Friday they played Sweden Rock festival in Sölvesborg and on Saturday were set to play the Arrow Rock Festival in Lichtenvoorde, Netherlands. At press time we are uncertain if the band was arrested before or after that performance but judging by the post on their official site it appears they were arrested leaving for a scheduled appearance in Norway on Sunday night.
