      Can't you feel it coming? EMPIRE! Can't you hear it coming? EMPIRE! Here comes 2020 and that sound youhear and vibration you feel is GEOFF TATE and his band, Operation: Mindcrime, gearing up for theirforthcoming tour of America beginning next spring that will celebrate the 30th Anniversary of EMPIRE.Released in August of 1990, the album spawned six singles ("Empire," "Silent Lucidity," "Best I Can," "JetCity Woman," "Another Rainy Night (without you)" and "Anybody Listening?") and is Queensryche's bestselling album to date with sales over three million units, achieving triple-platinum status. GEOFF and theband -- currently comprised of Kieran Robertson on guitar, Jack Ross on bass, Scott Moughton on guitarand Felix Bohnke on drums -- will be performing all eleven songs from the album back-to-back, in its entirety.And to throw it completely over the top, the forthcoming shows will be kicked off by a complete performanceof Queensryche's second studio album, Rage for Order, another eleven song gem that featured the singles,"Gonna Get Close to You," "The Whisper" and "Walk in the Shadows." Just a few years after its release inthe summer of '86, Kerrang! magazine called it one of the "100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All-Time."That's right, both "Rage for Order" and "Empire" all in one night!Multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter GEOFF TATE is best known for his 30-plusyears as the creative and driving force behind the progressive metal band Queensryche. Since its inceptionwith GEOFF at the helm, the band sold over 25 million albums worldwide and performed in over fifty differentcountries. GEOFF is regarded as one of the most skilled vocalists in the genre with hundreds of modern,popular artists citing him and his former band as a major influence.Combining social consciousness and expertly crafted lyrics with high-energy, melodically complexmusic, Queensryche --with GEOFF TATE at the forefront -- became internationally recognized as the thinkingman's rock band. The band's first three albums -- their self-titled EP (1983), The Warning (1984) and Rage forOrder (1986) -- all hit gold status selling over 500,000 units each. With the release of their landmark conceptalbum Operation: Mindcrime (1988) -- which won critical and popular acclaim and comparisons to theWho's Tommy and Pink Floyd's The Wall -- Queensryche went on to bring their progressive music to sold-outaudiences the world over.Following the album's platinum success, Queensryche released Empire, which quickly entered the Top Tenon the Billboard charts, eventually generating sales of more than three million copies. The album featuredthe hugely popular hit, "Silent Lucidity," which would be the band's first Top Ten single (#9 onthe Billboard Hot 100 chart and #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart). GEOFF and the bandwould ultimately perform the Grammy nominated song live at the Grammy awards accompanied by asupporting orchestra. In all, Queensryche has been nominated for a Grammy four times and has had theirmusic featured in three feature films.In 2006, the band released Operation: Mindcrime II, a scorching sequel to their original 1988 tale of "Rock,Revenge and Redemption." The band would soon hit the road performing both albums back-to-back in theirentirety in an incredible theatrical presentation. The spectacle would be captured on Mindcrime at the Moore,a double CD/DVD release so popular that the DVD would debut at #1 on Billboard's Top Music DVD chart andeventually reach gold status.Shortly after the release of that hugely successful set, Queensryche would release another gem in 2007titled, Sign of the Times: The Best of Queensryche, that featured 17 career-spanning tracks including sevenTop 10 hits with a two-CD deluxe Collector's Edition that added fifteen rare and previously unreleasedrecordings. Later that year, the band found themselves on the fall leg of the highly acclaimed Heaven andHell Tour with the late, great Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice along withother special guest, Alice Cooper. The year would culminate with the release of Take Cover, an adventurous11-song collection of covers ranging from Black Sabbath to Broadway.
