Queensryche Kicks Off Sturgis Buffalo Chip '13
Thursday, January 24, 2013
There's no place to party like the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. Woody and the Buffalo Chip gang announced that Queensryche is the band vested with the responsibility of getting the party started off on the right foot in 2013 and will rock the Wolfman Jack Stage Friday, Aug. 2.
What’s that you say? How can you be thinking about Sturgis
when we haven’t even hit Daytona Beach Bike Week
Maybe because we always have Sturgis on our minds. And when we think of Sturgis, we think of the Legendary Buffalo Chip
, our favorite place to party in the Black Hills.
So we were stoked to learn that Queensryche
will be the band vested with the responsibility of getting the 2013 party started at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. The veteran rockers will hit the Wolfman Jack Stage Friday, Aug. 2, 2013.
I thought the band that is currently doing a special “25th Anniversary of Operation Mindcrime” tour, fronted by Geoff Tate and including Rudy Sarzo and Bobby Blotzer, was the ones that were playing, but astute reader jeffbr brought it to my attention that it will be the what he calls "the real band, fronted by Todd La Torre with three of the band's founding members." Appreciate you setting the record straight, jeffbr. Now let's rock!!
Queensryche – Sturgis 2013 – at the Chip. See you there August 2!!
