The Details: It’s without question that the last year or so in the life of the band known as Queensryche has been a tumultuous one and now there are two separate sides of the music fence when it comes to the group. On one side, the bands original singer Geoff Tate with a brand new band and on the other, the rest of the guys with a brand new singer. I’ve supported the group since the beginning and have chosen to keep this practice up with coverage of both sides and that made me excited when I learned that Queensryche featuring Geoff Tate, the Original Voice would be performing at our own Gramercy Theatre. Queensryche will be joined by Hurricane on this tour and I enjoyed some of their output as well over the years. Geoff’s assembled a high energy lineup that features former members of Quiet Riot, Dio and more and will be celebrating the music of “Operation: Mindcrime”, an album that reached its 25th year in 2013 – it is one of my favorites and you probably agree . My charge of musical energy was increased when the fine folks at Livenation offered up a contest for the readers of the PiercingMetal site. Read on below to see participation rules.
