One of hard rock’s most celebrated , Queensrÿche will be taking the Event Center stage to perform jaw-dropping hits like “Jet City Woman,” “Guardian,” “Hellfire,” and “Bulletproof”. Tickets range from $47 – $27 plus applicable taxes and fees. Tickets go on sale Saturday, October 6 at 10 AM CST and can be purchased by visiting rhythmcitycasino.com or by calling 844-852-4FUN. Doors open at 7 PM for the 8 PM show. All ages are welcome.

Queensrÿche secured a triumphant legacy, selling 30 million albums around the world across a 30-plus-year career. The band’s name is uttered in the same breath as many of the groups they looked to as influences and others who arose as peers. Queensrÿche built a dedicated legion of fans traveling the globe on tour with fellow rock giants like Iron Maiden, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Judas Priest, and Def Leppard. In recent years, they’ve consistently delivered high-octane live shows combining the hungry fire of a new band with the tempered experience of master showmen.

Among the great strengths of Queensrÿche is the band’s diversity, from the classic metal majesty of early demo banger “Queen of the Reich” to the soaring and orchestral-backed balladry of #1 smash “Silent Lucidity.” Condition Hüman is the massive, densely layered, unflinchingly driving and consistently memorable Queensrÿche album the world demanded. Cofounders Michael Wilton (guitar), Eddie Jackson (bass), and Scott Rockenfield (drums) with Todd La Torre (vocals) and Parker Lundgren (guitar) draw power from stunning collective synergy, a renewed sense of urgency, and an overall life affirming optimism.

Dark, melodic, dynamic, diverse, instantly memorable, with an intellectual slant to the songwriting and lyrics that are always inviting on the surface while rewarding deeper listening, Queensrÿche continuously replenishes themselves, more than three decades into their body of work. Brave, adventurous, never less than authentic, Queensrÿche captured the rare lightning-in-a-bottle status of being both legendary and contemporary.
