June 5, 2003

QUEENSRŸCHE premiered two new songs — "Open" and "Desert Dance" — during the kick-off date of their European tour Wednesday night (June 4) at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam, Holland. Filling in on second guitar during the group's performance was Mike Stone (ex-KLOVER, CRAIG GOLDIE'S RITUAL, JONAS HANSSON BAND, CRISS),who performed a similar duty during the band's New Year's Eve headlining appearance in Anchorage, Alaska. Stone stepped in as a temporary replacement for ex-guitarist Kelly Gray, who was dismissed from the group in late 2001.

QUEENSRŸCHE's complete setlist for the Amsterdam show was as follows (in NO particular order):

01. Open (new)
02. Screaming In Digital
03. I Remember Now
04. Anarchy-X
05. Revolution Calling

QUEENSRŸCHE's new studio album, "Tribe", is due on July 22 through Sanctuary Records.

The follow-up to 1999's "Q2K", which is expected to include a guest appearance by original QUEENSRŸCHE guitarist Chris DeGarmo, was engineered by Scott Olson, who has worked as the "full-time right hand" to Terry Date (producer for such bands as the DEFTONES, PANTERA and LIMP BIZKIT, among others) and was mixed by Adam Kasper, whose past credits include PEARL JAM and the FOO FIGHTERS.
