Prog Metal legends Queensryche and Fates Warning kicked off their new tour in Orlando. The March 2nd show at The Plaza Live was packed with people wanting to see these two great bands finally tour together. The tour is for Queensryche’s new The Verdict album. If you haven’t picked it up I recommend it very highly. It’s like they’ve gone back in time but mixed in the new. Todd La Torre has really put new life into Queensryche and the three albums he’s on have all been amazing. He even plays drums on the new one!
Fates Warning opened the show and they were as good as ever. Ray Alder still has one of the best voices in music. The rhythm section of Joey Vera and Bobby Jarzombek were tight and entertaining from the get go. Joey bounces around like he did in the early days of Armored Saint who he still plays with. Bobby makes complex odd time drum parts seem easy. Guitar legend Jim Matheos and Michael Abdow were stellar and Michael did some fantastic soloing. They played a set list that featured a lot of newer stuff but a couple classics mixed in.
