Why You Need to See Queensrÿche Live

Dynamic on stage, Queensrÿche is a phenomenal band, garnering new fans and pleasing old fans on their latest tour. We saw them this past week in Grand Rapids, Michigan, at 20 Monroe Live. It was a great venue for the bands that played; I personally cannot think of a better place to see a band. We were very close to the stage, right up against the barrier. And even people standing in the back said they could see the electric group.

Gold, silver, and other precious metals lured people to seek their fortune. A select few, like William Randolph Hearst, became millionaires.

We’ve been rolling in 2020 for a month now, and it’s been quite a tough–at times it feels like we’ve experienced an entire year in one month.

Each of these will surely see their spots in the history books. Each has earned their place in water cooler conversation, shed tears, and the annals of anxiety.
