WPDH Presents Queensryche at The Chance on Sunday, April 3 at The Chance.

Queensryche is opening for Judas Priest this Spring on their 50th-anniversary tour, and they'll be headlining an off night of that tour right here in Poughkeepsie at The Chance.

Queensryche released their first album with current singer Todd La Torre entitled Queensryche on Century Media Records in 2013, followed by Condition Human (2015) and The Verdict (2019). The band was formed back in 1980 out of Bellevue, Washington, and has recorded a total of 15 studio albums. The original lineup consisted of guitarists Michael Wilton and Chris DeGarmo, drummer Scott Rockenfield, bassist Eddie Jackson and lead vocalist Geoff Tate. They've sold over 20 million records worldwide.

Queensryche's 1988 album Operation: Mindcrime received worldwide acclaim and is considered to be one of the greatest heavy metal concept albums of all time. The album featured the band's first charting hits in the U.S., "Eyes of a Stranger" and "I Don't Believe in Love". "I Don't Believe in Love" was nominated for a Grammy at the Grammy Awards for Best Metal Performance in 1990. The follow-up Empire in 1990 was also very successful with hit singles including "Silent Lucidity" and "Jet City Woman". "Silent Lucidity" was also nominated in 1992 for a Grammy for Best Rock Song and Best  Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. Don't miss the return of Queensryche to The Chance in Poughkeepsie in April.
