So, this is a band who has a lot of potential fans out there who may not even be aware of what has been going on and again, if the word keeps getting around to those fans from the Empire days and they are able to hear the new album, QR could gain many of their past fans back again. If just 1/3 of the people who bought Empire could be reached, that would be 1 million fans here in the USA. Now, that's really dreaming, but once tatewreck gets his crap farewell tour out of the way, that dream could come true. Well, that's what I'd love to see of course!
While bands who were once popular sometimes to gain older fans back, they never gain that many old fans back. For the most part a lot of these fans have moved on in the 20 something years since Empire was a hit. If you told them what was going on now they simply wouldn't give a shit because Queensryche is not that big of a deal to them anymore. It's better to let go of the dream that they can somehow have this huge revival and just be happy that the lawsuit is settled and that the band will draw respectable crowds (around a 1,000 or so) for the rest of their career. In the end you're only going to be disappointed when the Queensryche revival hasn't taken off in the next few years. Their next album will probably sell about the same as the new one and that's as successful as they'll be which overall isn't that bad.

Well, the dream of them gaining a lot more popularity is one that I know most likely won't happen, but I think there's a good chance they could do up to 3 or 4 times better than they are now, but you're already very well aware of how I feel and I'm quite aware how the rest of you feel so let's let it be at that and see what happens next.

Three times what they do now is about 1500 people per show...

You guys are still arguing about this? I love Queensryche and all but damn! You two need to go outside and make friends or something.

Travis won't give up and everyone who has a different viewpoint than ravenheart is wrong and subjected to insults so this could go a while.

Even that's a generous number



They've been outsold by most metal bands playing the same venue in Philly for years and that won't change because of this

No, I'm really done. I've made every point I can think of and every point every one else can think of has also been made. Time to book Tate in my back yard and fire up the grill. Oh wait. Who'd want to eat rotten tater tots?

This forum needs to instantly block or change any mention of "The 'ryche".... like... srsly.... Replace Queensryche with "Not Pantera" and replace "Geoff Tate" with "Chicken Salad".

I USED TO RUN A FORUM, I KNOW YOU CAN DO THESE THINGS!!!
