When it comes to Batman, I might be in the minority, but I think the Michael Keaton version is the greatest Batman of all time.  But great Batman cover while intentionally or not.

I agree with you 100%.  There's no contest with any if the others IMO.  Not really counting Adam West though.

Adam West is the ONLY Batman
.

100% fucking right.

I saw the first Batman with Michael Keaton. I never understood the choice of him being Batman, and the movie blew chunks anyway. I didn't see any of the other ones, but why did they change actors in every movie?
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

Because they all sucked at it.

Edit: They might as well have used Geoff Tate.

Timmay - you're doing yourself a disservice by not checking out the Christopher Nolan trilogy that had Christian Slater as Batman. Took away all the cartoony aspects that were still present in the movies with Keaton, Kilmer and Clooney. Personally I'm not a superhero movie guy at all, but I loved these movies. At least check out The Dark Knight as I think it deserves the praise it gets, but both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises are worth watching too. Can't comment on anything since because I haven't seen them.
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

Christian Slater? Jeez, I haven't heard that name in decades. I don't even remember him playing Batman.

Could well have missed some ongoing joke in the thread but think meant Christian BALE

And will add as great as that trilogy was (coulda done without the OTT Bale voice though) as an elder fan of Batman I gotta say that last one with Robert Pattinson under the cowl was surprisingly very good an defs on par with the Nolan trilogy IMO :tup

Yeah - total brain fart on my part!    :facepalm:

Good to know about the Pattinson movie.  :tup  Will have to check it out.

All good!  My own life is full of brain farts particularly now past 50 and tbf who knows, maybe Slater could pull off a decent Bats?  He's about the only one who hasn't tackled the character, so may as well give him his shot!? ;D

But yes really enjoyed the latest film and if Pattinson gives the character some growth, the sequel could be fantastic \m/

For the record, while I have liked most of the actors who have portrayed Batman/Bruce Wayne, I felt Christian Bale got it perfect, and The Dark Knight Trilogy is unsurpassed.

Should be awesome. Planning to see it twice, plus an Armored Saint headline show in-between.

I think we're planning a book signing for the QR bio, my new Roads to Madness book, and the new Metal Church biography for Saturday, March 30, in Seattle, so perfect timing.

Great bill. Such a good pairing. Armored Saint is always awesome. And I am glad to see QR playing these two releases in their entirety. On one hand, I feel this lineup of QR should focus more on the TLT era stuff. And they did, before TLT got ill, on the last tour (and even afterward, they did). But now they are doing all of The Warning to celebrate the 40th anniversary of that album, and then all of the EP?! Yes, please. Should be an epic night of old school metal greatness.

The "Origins" tour, featuring only two of the five members who made the music on the EP and Warning. This would be cool if it were the classic lineup doing it, but this lineup? No thanks.

This is a Saturday night in Worcester so it may work, but if I go, I'm probably leaving after Armored Saint.

Here's my take. DeGarmo has sadly been gone for a long time. Tate has been gone for a decade. And obviously, there is the Rockenfield situation. All of that is unfortunate. Would I love to see the ORIGINAL band, my favorite musical act of all-time, do this instead? OF COURSE. But that's not going to happen.

Michael and Ed know the EP and The Warning are special. They want to celebrate them (its the 40th anniversary of The Warning). If you're a fan of these releases, this is as close as you're gonna get. For me, playing these two releases, and bringing the mighty Armored Saint on tour, is enough for me to want to see it. If you (or anyone) feel(s) differently, totally cool. But as a fan of this music, this package of bands and the material being played have me excited for an old school night of metal.

The fact that they played a really solid Todd era tour makes me so much more open to seeing a classics tour. I love balance! I just hope they keep playing their new stuff in the future - their new albums have been such a fucking joy.

Once I see the Classics Tour, I will have seen five Queensryche albums in their entirety between QR live and Geoff Tate!

For those QR fans who listen to podcasts, I was on the latest episode of I Remember Now: The Queensryche Podcast. They kindly had me on to discuss the QR bio I helped write, Building An Empire, which published two years ago, and later on in the pod, I give a preview of my new book, Roads to Madness, due in March 2024, and what to expect in it.

https://iremembernowpodcast.com/episode-16-building-an-empire-on-the-roads-to-madness/

It's also available on Spotify, and everywhere folks get their podcasts.

Fun chat with a couple of lifelong QR fans. If you dig Queensryche, it's worth going back into the library for past episodes.

They're playing Toad's in New Haven; I don't have a ton of interest in the Todd-era QR, but to see the band in a 700 seat club, with great pizza next door, might be too much. I'd dig seeing Armored Saint as well.

Skipping this tour for now and hoping they book a date that is easier for me to get to or on a weekend - the band's Facebook page was alluding to potential future dates, so we'll see.  The only date in Northern Illinois is Rockford, which I just don't feel like driving to on a Thursday night.  It's just too hard to get out with younger kids.  If they were teens and didn't care if I was home at bedtime, it would be so much easier to see shows.  It's always my excuse, but I'm just becoming more selective with concerts as I get older and preferring to be at home with them.

The prices of the tickets looked good though, only $40 for floor sections in the theater.

I'm not crazy about the tour because I'd rather them do TLT Era material and I'm not a huge fan  of QR generally... but the tour is coming locally and I've never seen Armored Saint. I put it on my calendar.  Same venue when I saw them in 2020.

Armored Saint is worth the price of admission alone. old school metal, John Bush sounds amazing, and they always put on a good show.
