Geoff Tate’s ‘Operation Mindcrime’ Thrills Zillah Crowd [PHOTOS]
While a packed house cheered in Zillah, original Queensrÿche singer Geoff Tate and his band, OPERATION MINDCRIME, marked the 30th anniversary of Queensrÿche's pivotal album, "Operation: Mindcrime" by performing the entire record.
More than 400 jammed into Perham Hall for Friday night's show as Tate and his band (introduced by Todd E. Lyons Esq. and Curt Cartier) played all 15 songs from the platinum release, plus a few other favorites.
Here's a peek at how it all went:
"Operation: Mindcrime" came out in May 1988. It's based on a heroin addict who gets caught up in a shadowy revolutionary group. It quickly put the international spotlight on Tate. Three decades later, it is still considered one of the best pure concept albums ever produced.
The show was presented by Prosser Memorial Health, Perham Hall and 94.5 KATS.
