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.
To Participate: The special nature of this show makes me ask all of you to leave me three solid things of what you like most about Tate and his storied career. That’s pretty simple right? I think so and you can cover any of his musical endeavors in this. These can be about shows you’ve seen or music you’ve loved and if you feel like impressing me you can even add a fourth (but no more). Make them good. I’ll be picking from the best submissions and letting them know right under their comment so take hold of the flame and try your luck at this one. With the show being on Monday this contest will close on Sunday evening without exception so don’t miss out. Please review some guidelines below.
– Enter only enter once. The comments are moderated and will not appear immediately after submission.
– Number them for ease of knowing if you followed the instructions or not if I’ve asked for a list.
– Please enter your full real name in the comment form along with an email address that you can be reached at if you win. This is necessary for listing purposes. Please do NOT put this information in the comment itself out of privacy concerns.
– Only enter if you can and will attend the show should you win and it’s logistically possible for you to do so. Essentially if you live a couple of hundred miles away we don’t think you’re coming here for a show in NYC.
– Subscribe to the comments and check back to see the responses so you know if you won or not.
– Make sure you are entering a NEW comment and not replying to another contestant’s entry as that makes notifying you difficult should you be marked as a winner.
Restrictions: PiercingMetal.com contests are open to our regional site readers AND our social networking supporters so make sure you like the Facebook Page, follow the Twitter or Instagram of the website. We also for new submissions first in order to give everyone a fair shot at enjoying a show on the provider and us.

If You Win This Contest: If you are marked as one of the winners for this contest, here is how to claim the ticket. On the night of the show go to the venue box office and ask for the House Guest List. Please bring proper identification (driver’s license, passport, NYC ID card) and your name will be checked off that list for you to enter. This is a paperless venue so you will NOT recieve a physical ticket. If you encounter any difficulty, please politely ask for an onsite manager or the venue concierge and cite how this contest was done in coordination with venue marketing and PiercingMetal.com. You can also expect an email to the provided address you submit in your entry reminding you of the win so make sure that @piercingmetal.com is listed as a safe domain to receive notes from.
