Geoff Tate played the Queensryche Third Studio album Operation Mindcrime at the Manning bar last night and what a show he put on. The support acts from Sydney were Temtris and Darker Half.
First up where Temtris, they performed an amazing set full of powerful instrumental and vocals. We got to watch Genevieve kick ass as she engaged the fans.
Next up where Darker Half, as you listened to their music you got dragged into a different style of music and it was just as amazing. Vo and his band killed it as they played powerful riffs and heavy drums. These two acts are definitely worth seeing.
As Geoff Tate and his band walked on stage the room was buzzing with excitement. The lights went dark and the band walked on stage and started playing, Geoff walked on stage and stared singing the opening song of the night "I Remember Now" followed by "Anarchy-X and Revolution Calling". The fans cheered wanting more.
Geoff continued with "The Mission"and "Suite Sister Mary". As Emily Tate came on stage to help Geoff sing there was a roar of excitement and they put on one hell of a performance that you can't describe.
Geoff spoke to his fans and says "Thank You, how are you doing friends?" and the crowd cheeredeven louder, he continue says "It is nice to see you guys in Sydney again, you are looking good. Thank You for being here tonight and celebrating 30 years of operation Mindcrime. You guys have the privilege of being the second to the last show of the 30-year Operation Mindcrime anniversary so this is probably the last time I will do this. I just wanted you to know how much it means to me. All of you are here when we began this tour, I thought it was going to be a quick well to a 12 months maybe but it's turned into this here we go".
Geoff continued to engage his fans by throwing his hands in the air while singing and before you knew it the who crowed was joining in and having a great night.
Geoff Tate walked off stage and the crowd started cheering for more. Geoff walked back on stage and played "Best I Can, Jet City Woman, Silent Lucidity and Empire" to finish off an epic night. It was an entertaining night and an unforgettable one. Don't miss this gig, or you will regret it.
