GEOFF TATE Performs QUEENSR?CHE Classics In Sellersville (Video)

Fan-filmed video footage of OPERATION: MINDCRIME, the band led by former QUEENSR?CHE singer Geoff Tate, performing on June 25 in Sellersville, Pennsylvania can be seen below. Geoff has spent the last year and a half celebrating the 30th anniversary of QUEENSR?CHE's "Operation: Mindcrime" album on European and U.

S. tours.

Tate's post-QUEENSR?CHE band OPERATION: MINDCRIME released three albums over three years as part of a trilogy: "The Key" (September 2015), "Resurrection" (September 2016) and "The New Reality" (December 2017).

Geoff recently confirmed that he will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band's landmark "Empire" album on a special tour next year. Released in 1990, the set included the hit ballad "Silent Lucidity", which reached No. 9 on the Billboard singles chart, helped propel "Empire" to No. 7 on the album chart and earned two Grammy Award nominations.

Speaking to, Tate said: "I'm planning on touring in 2020 very heavily — sort of doing kind of what I did with the 'Operation: Mindcrime' 30th-year anniversary, going to as many countries as I can and playing the album in its entirety, which I've never done before. So that'll be real fun. In fact, I think there's some songs on that album that I've never, ever played live before, so it'll be a treat — for me, as well, I think, for the audience too… I'm really looking forward to that."

Last November, Tate said that QUEENSR?CHE was working on a 30th-anniversary edition of "Empire", telling Eonmusic: "There's a box set thing coming out for that. I'm kind of in the process of working with them on it right now. I can say from my perspective looking it, it's going to be a phenomenal box set, and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm contributing all kinds of stuff, from interviews to comments to liner notes — yeah, you name it."

When pressed about the musical content, however, the singer remained tight-lipped. "I know exactly what it's going to be, but I can't tell you exactly right now — it's too early," he said.

Tate told Eonmusic that one song from "Empire" that was rarely performed live is "Anybody Listening?" "When QUEENSR?CHE was together, we never really put that song in our set. We just had a hard time playing it, for some reason; it just never jelled or felt right. And I'd really like to play that song again, and play it right."

In April 2014, Tate and QUEENSR?CHE announced that a settlement had been reached after a nearly two-year legal battle where the singer sued over the rights to the QUEENSR?CHE name after being fired in 2012. Original QUEENSR?CHE members Michael Wilton (guitar), Scott Rockenfield (drums) and Eddie Jackson (bass) responded with a countersuit. The settlement included an agreement that Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson would continue as QUEENSR?CHE, while Tate would have the sole right to perform the albums "Operation: Mindcrime" and "Operation: Mindcrime II" in their entirety live.

Tate has been replaced in QUEENSR?CHE by former CRIMSON GLORY singer Todd La Torre.
