The Kalamazoo State Theatre, one of the city’s most storied entertainment landmarks, is excited to announce the upcoming concert featuring the legendary metal band Queensrÿche. Joined by the powerful lineup of Armored Saint, this promises to be a night of intense riffs and epic performances. The event is set for Saturday, April 13th, with doors opening at 7PM.

Tickets for this electrifying show will be available starting with an online-only presale on Wednesday at 10 AM, giving the most eager fans a chance to secure their spot ahead of time. General ticket sales will begin on Friday at 10 AM. With ticket prices ranging from $29.50 to $49.50, fans are urged to act quickly to witness this iconic band’s visit to Kalamazoo.

Queensrÿche, known for their progressive metal sound and groundbreaking albums such as “Operation: Mindcrime” and “Empire,” continues to deliver their signature mix of thought-provoking lyrics and complex musical arrangements. For this performance, the band will be performing their debut EP and critically-acclaimed album “The Warning” in full. They will be taking the stage with Armored Saint, a band that has been at the forefront of the metal scene with their raw, powerful sound since the early 1980s.  And for the first time ever, Queensrÿche will be performing both classic releases in their entirety as part of ‘The Origins Tour.’

“We are thrilled to bring to you The Origins Tour!,’ says La Torre. “This will be the first time in Queensrÿche’s history that the EP and ‘The Warning’ will be performed live in their entirety. And to make this an even more stellar tour, we are so excited that our great friends and legendary metallers Armored Saint will be joining us as direct support. We are all proud to bring you this touring package and we can’t wait to see you on the road.”
