Queensryche confirmed for HRH 8

Following the official cancellation of W.A.S.P., HRH are pleased to announce that Queensryche will be stepping up to the the top slot and will be jetting in for a UK exclusive at HRH 8 this November. Queensrÿche, featuring Todd La Torre have recently been enjoying tremendous success performing to hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide and now cant wait to perform their latest show in front of the HRH loyal.

Queensrÿche first burst onto the music scene in 1982 with the release of their self-titled 4 song EP Queensrÿche. They very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With the follow up first full length album “The Warning” in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of “Rage For Order”, Queensrÿche continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 80’s. In 1988 the band turned out yet another monumental album”Operation:Mindcrime”, which would go on to become one of the TOP 10 best selling concepts records of all time,

Queensrÿche have sold over 30 million albums worldwide.

Current Members include: 

Todd LaTorre – Lead Vocals;

Michael Wilton – Guitar;

Eddie Jackson – Bass;

Scott Rockenfield – Drums;

Parker Lundgren – Guitar

It was a shame to see Lizzy Borden complete their 30 years of Metal World Tour without any UK shows, however after a quick chat we are now pleased to announce that Lizzy Borden will also fly in for a UK exclusive this November @ HRH 8.

HRH 8 has been sold out since January and takes place in just over 40 days time. We’ve still got a few bits to add to what I’m sure is going to be another cracking weekend.

Cant wait to see you all

Jonni and all @ HRH Towers.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
