They're also playing an outdoor venue, pretty small I think, in Michigan with Great White and Slaughter.

Are you sure that's their rock bottom? Because they literally played a Harley Davidson dealership here in Toledo last month. A Harley Davidson dealership. I don't care if it was "bike week" because that's still lame as hell. And even worse, the last time Queensryche was in Toledo was back in 2005, when they played the Stranahan Theater. You know, the type of venue you can go and see symphonies, comedians, musicals, etc. From that... to a fucking motorcycle dealership.

For an extra dose of pandering it's pretty funny that back in 2006 when they toured on Mindcrime II and had that whole "ride your motorcycle to the gig for charity" or whatever the fuck that was the two band members that participated in the riding were: two guys no longer in the band

I mean, at least if Judas Priest played a Harley dealership you could figure, well, motorcycles are sort of a part of the band. But Queensryche?

And yet there was a very vocal fan base that blamed Susan Tate for booking the band with hair bands in recent years, saying it was beneath QR or whatever. Nice to see that's ended

Holy shit.

That must be what happens when you've overextended the county fair market

OK, so they're playing a couple of smaller venues. So what? They've also done very well at some larger clubs and some are the same clubs that taterot's QR did much worse.

Yeah, the Indiana venue can actually hold about a million people, because it's essentially just "The Outdoors."
