Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindcrime

Singer and songwriter Geoff Tate deserves a lot of credit for the success of Queensryche’s groundbreaking rock opera Operation: Mindcrime. However, the guy also gets the blame for later turning that band into a touring circus, complete with acrobats and a sidestage freakshow. After he got fired or quit, depending on who you believe, he copped the Mindcrime album name as his own (after losing a legal battle to call his band Queensryche), and the result is a better-than-you’d think hard-rock conglomerate that will perform highlights from Tate’s impressive back catalog at Brick by Brick.
