Each episode of Digital Tour Bus’s “Crazy Tour Stories” features a touring act giving you all the details about one or more wild things that have taken place while on tour. In this episode, which was filmed on September 26, 2015 in Rosemont, Illinois, QUEENSRŸCHE shares on crazy thing that happened while the group was on the road.
QUEENSRŸCHE hired Todd La Torre to replace Geoff Tate in 2012 and has released two albums with the ex-CRIMSON GLORY frontman: 2013’s “Queensrÿche” and 2015’s “Condition Hüman”.
QUEENSRŸCHE guitarist Michael Wilton recently told The Glendale Star that the band is stronger than ever after parting ways with Tate and adding La Torre.
“We went through a lot of drama over the past few years and we have been focused on rebuilding this band,” Wilton said. “We are the original members and it was important for us to gain control of the name of the band. It was a chance meeting with [La Torre] that brought this together and it is working out great.”
He added: “For the past ten years, this band has been more of a dictatorship. Now, with the influence of [La Torre], we have great chemistry and we are now a complete democracy, not a dictatorship.”
