The Geoff Tate version of Queensryche keeps plucking away, despite the less then amicable split from the original Queensryche, and the legal battles and the war of words, this version of QR has kept on touring and building new avenues with his multitude of known musicians the likes of Rudy and Robert Sarzo on bass and guitars, as well as drumming legend Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio, UFO) and former QR guitarist Kelly Gray. With typical trademark and featuring a full house at The Gramercy in NYC, the bands didn’t hold back as they played the classic “Operation Mindcrime” in it’s entirety. Classic songs like ¨Best I Can¨, ¨Jet City Woman¨ and ¨Empire¨ we’re also added to the set list as usual numbers.  As it may seem to old Ryche fans performing the whole Mindcrime record again is a cash collection bid, without a shadow of a doubt I enjoyed the performance, this record is what clearly put QR on the map and has forever been stamped on metal history as an all time greatest of albums. So with this all star cast in full effect, and Tate taking on he’s own charismatic roles into the characters of the story line, it helped put on a great show. The high volume of musicianship is not in question, great show from the veteran outfit.

As a side note for the support bands you have the Local band Metalfier which hit the stage at 7:30 playing a classic Heavy Metal set with songs of their last EP ¨There’s a Devil Inside My Head¨, and at 8:10 was the return of LA hard Rockers Hurricane led by Robert Sarzo on guitars before he doubled up with QR as the main act.
