Geoff Tate and his band Operation: Mindcrime will celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the album that goes by the same name. Dare you miss out on this one? I wouldn’t think so.
Geoff Tate brings his special acoustic tour to NYC with an appearance at The City Winery.
The Details: You know that you have a lot of love for the legendary voice of Geoff Tate who led us to many albums of Metal greatness on the microphone with the band Queensryche. Now as a solo artist, Tate has formed a band called “Operation: Mindcrime” where he plays that iconic album along with other classics and he was most recently seen in a Metal super combinant known as “Trinity” but this my friends is something completely different. You see Geoff is now on an acoustic tour which is labeled “The Whole Story” and with this event you are going to hear the songs you love and get some background on their history. Think of this as something like the “VH1 Storytellers” premise. What makes this all the more awesome is that thank to the marketing mavens at the City Winery, a few lucky PiercingMetal Fans will be seeing this show for absolutely free. This concert ticket giveaway is the first ever between the website and this venue and I am stoked about that for sure. Read on for rules and such.
When and Where: Monday, February 20th at City Winery (155 Varick Street, NYC). 6:30 doors 8pm show.
