Queensryche Postpone Tour

Fans hoping to see the new incarnation of Queensryche perform live next month will have to wait a little bit longer as the band have postponed their spring tour until this fall.

The band was scheduled to play a number of live dates in Europe in April but have been forced to postpone most of the dates so they can focus on promotion for their new album, which will be released on June 10th.

The band explained why they needed to make the change in a posting on their Facebook page. Here is what they had to say:

"We know some fans are upset that we had to postpone some of the April dates. Queensryche never want to miss any chance to see and play for our fans around the world, but there are some things we have to do for our label in order to get the new record out to you in the time we promised.

"When the shows were originally booked, these obligations were not known to us as we were still talking with various labels. We as a band feel we have made some of the best music of our career and would put it out tomorrow if it was within our power for you all to hear. I do think our label would kill us if we did though.

"We will get back to Europe as soon as we can and are excited to play the classics as well as some of this new material for all our fans around the world!"

04/11 - Stockholm, Sweden - Sweden Rock Cruise
