Geoff Tate Performs ‘Operation: Mindcrime’ In Its Entirety at Zillah’s Perham Hall
It's been 30 years since the release of the groundbreaking concept album, "Operation: Mindcrime." And now, original Queensrÿche singer Geoff Tate plans to perform the full album live in the Yakima Valley.
Tate and his band, OPERATION MINDCRIME, will play all 15 songs from the platinum-selling recording Oct. 11 at Zillah's Perham Hall. The show is presented by Prosser Memorial Health, Perham Hall and 94.5 KATS.
The performance will include "Revolution Calling," "Operation: Mindcrime," "I Don't Believe In Love" and "Eyes of a Stranger." The band will also cover some greatest hits, including "Silent Lucidity" and "Jet City Woman."
"Operation: Mindcrime," released in May 1988 and based on a heroin addict who gets caught up in a shadowy revolutionary group, drew international attention to Tate. Even now, it is considered one of the best pure concept albums ever produced.
Tate also marked the 25th anniversary of the album by performing it in its entirety during a 2013 tour.
