April 13, 2018
Fan-filmed video footage of Geoff Tate's OPERATION: MINDCRIME performing on April 13 at Backstage in Munich, Germany can be seen below.
Tate celebrated the 30th anniversary of QUEENSRŸCHE's "Operation: Mindcrime" album on his recent European tour.
"Operation: Mindcrime" is the third studio album of eleven that Geoff recorded with QUEENSRŸCHE. The concept album and rock opera is a story following Nikki, a recovering drug addict, who becomes disillusioned with the corrupt society of his time and becomes involved in a revolutionary group, acting as an assassin of political leaders. The certified platinum album was rated by Kerrang! as one of heavy metal's top 100 albums of all time.
QUEENSRŸCHE played "Operation: Mindcrime" in its entirety during the band's 1990 tour to promote the "Empire" album. The performance featured video, animation and guest singer Pamela Moore as the character Sister Mary.
Tate was fired from QUEENSRŸCHE in 2012. He has since been replaced by former CRIMSON GLORY singer Todd La Torre.
