Until further notice, there are two acts named
Geoff Tate, 30-year singer for the original unit, was let go by his bandmates after a contentious trip to South America.
He announced a new version of the group, which motivated the original members to seek an injunction. A Superior Court judge has denied that motion until the parties go to court next year.
The original members of Queensrÿche have dates through March; Tate has dates into December.
“Queensrÿche is disappointed in the denial of the motion to prevent our former vocalist from using our name, but we respect the court’s decision to do so,” the band said. “That said, we apologize for any confusion to our fans that a second entity sharing our name may cause. We look forward to seeing all of you on the road and bringing you new Queensrÿche music in the near future.”
