Queensrÿche 30-yr Tour...A concert revisited...

May 18, 1991 I went to Green Bay, WI to see Queensrÿche perform at Brown County Arena. I was with my high school sweetheart and a couple of his friends. They normally tried to get as close to the stage as possible, but with me along they respected my fear of getting trampled or squished, so we sat in the bleachers, which was not so crowded, however the band members appeared small and hard to see. 
20 years later...

...I find myself going to the...

Queensrÿche 30th Anniversary Tour Concert
with one of my best friends, Rich.

Rich and I have been friends for over 15 years...done a lot of partying together in our younger years, but this was the first concert we ever went to together. And it was a blast!!!

Queensrÿche put on one heck of a concert!
This time around, however, I made sure I was close to the stage. We were only 2 people back from the gate that separated the crowd from the stage. It was phenominal being able to actually see Geoff Tate's expressions as he performed! And he still has that one-of-a-kind, one hell of a voice!
(If you've never heard Queensrÿche before, go to YouTube and listen to some of their songs...especially Silent Lucidity and Empire).

Queensrÿche performed at The Rave/Eagles Club in Milwaukee, WI on Sunday, August 21st, 2011.
I took a few pictures with my phone, but they all turned out too blurry. If you click on The Rave/Eagles Club, which I've attached a link to, it will take you to the concert pictures taken by a professional photographer, which were taken at this specific concert.
Here's a couple of the pictures I took...please forgive the blurriness of them...cell phones don't take the best pictures when it's dark and a lot of movement is going on!

(Below: A couple of short video clips I took with my phone...
sound quality is horrid unfortunately!)

Opening band for Queensrÿche was
The Voodoos, a band from Ireland.
They put on a fantastic opening performance!
