After an acrimonious break up with his former band mates, Queensryche vocalist and founding member Geoff Tate will be taking the newly announced line up of Queensryche on the road to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of their 1988 album Operation: Mindcrime.
The tour will feature the new line up of bassist Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne/Quiet Riot/Whitesnake/Dio), drummer Bobby Blotzer (Ratt), guitarist Kelly Gray (Queensryche/Myth) and keyboardist Randy Gane (Myth) along with special guest appearances.
The performance of Operation: Mindcrime will cover all fifteen songs from the album including "Revolution Calling," "Operation: Mindcrime," "I Don't Believe in Love," and "Eyes of a Stranger."
It will also feature other songs from the Queensryche catalog including songs from Operation: Mindcrime II.
