Queensryche Cancel Shows After New Singer Falls Ill

(Gibson) Queensryche have been forced to cancel two shows due to vocalist Todd La Torre's bout with sinus issues.

La Torre writes (in part): "Hello everyone. I am so very sorry that we had to cancel our show on the 20th (Lincoln City, OR). Trust me, nothing feels worse than knowing so many made travel arrangements, local, out of state, even out of the country to attend the two shows in Oregon. I have been fighting a horrible cold, sinus issues, etc. I have no throat pain of any kind, I just have a horrible head/sinus/chest cold. The immense travel I do coupled with extreme climate change can sometimes create these scenarios. I am only human, and it was a collective decision to cancel. I could not sing at all."

The band vows to make the shows up, but for now La Torre is confined to the house while he recuperates. more on this story
