Queensrÿche kicked off their 2023 Digital Noise Alliance Tour in Orlando, Florida on March 3, 2023 at The Plaza Live. Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson, Todd La Torre, Mike Stone and Casey Grillo are on top of their songwriting and performance games. Seeing them live is still as incredible and inspiring as it has ever been. Their stage banners resembled stained glass windows, featuring their best albums – “Queensrÿche”, “The Warning”, “Rage For Order”, “Operation:Mindcrime”, “Empire”, “Promised Land”, “The Verdict”, and “Digital Noise Alliance”.

Guitarist Marty Friedman and his band were direct support, with Bay Area thrashers Trauma opening the show. Fans of the guitar were in heaven, with a full night of wizardry on display. Trauma got things heated up with their early-80’s thrashers, setting things up for a heavy evening. Marty Friedman was up next to electrify the crowd. The ex-Megadeth guitarist has been living in Japan for 20 years and his band of Japanese musicians is talented and entertaining. Their instrumental metal is beautiful and heavy.

Queensrÿche opened for Judas Priest last fall, and their set list then was full of classic hits, which was the right choice for that kind of tour. Now that they are headlining in support of their outstanding new album, “Digital Noise Alliance”, the song choices are vastly different. Spoiler Alert: Full set list below photo album.

The new album is the best album of the Todd La Torre era, and the most impressive work from the band since “Promised Land”. Check out where it landed on our Five Fave: 2022 Classic Rock Albums. Five new songs were played this night, and they all sounded incredible. “Forest” in particular stood out, especially after La Torre explained that it was dedicated to anyone who had lost a parent.

“Empire” and “Operation:Mindcrime” were also featured, and tracks from those all-time classics always bring the loudest singing from the crowd. But the greatest gift of all was the steady supply of bangers from the first full-length album, “The Warning”. The 18 song set ended majestically with the 10 minute epic “Roads To Madness”. It was a glorious end to a tremendous night of hard rock magic.
