  1. Geoff, it is finally over. You have jumped the shark. The wig and glasses say it all. The Bobby Valentine of hard rock has arrived. The point of no return has come for a once great Bruce Dickinson sound-alike. DR DAVIS TELEPHONE PLEASE! DR DAVIS TELEPHONE PLEASE! Why look, my cable guy sang SILENT LUCIDITY.

  2. I don’t even know where to begin with this. The steroids have finally taken full control. If Chris DeGarmo were dead, he’d be rolling in his grave. He couldn’t even open for Jack Russell! Is this the guy that gave us Surgical Strike, I don’t believe in Love, NM 156, I will remember? Geoff…..the needle does indeed lie.

    1. Those 4 you mentioned do it for cosmetic reasons. This is different. Geoff is a mentally ill 55 year old man looking like a cross between DESTINY’S CHILD singers and the sand people of STAR WARS fame. He s not even trying to be funny. This is a sick person who knows that it’s over but cannot grasp his own reality. No one cares about QUEENRYCHE anymore and why should they? A tier 3 alternative band in 2014. They’re no longer relevant. Oh QUEENSRYCHE is gone, I’ll just check out something else. If they played nice and stayed together, they could have been a cute opening act for somebody better but NOOOOO! They had to form 2 QUEENSRYCHES. Less is so much more fellows. GEOFF. DRIVE YOUR CHEVY TO THE LEVEE AND HOPE THAT IT IS NOT DRY……..

    1. It is insanity Chris, LOOK AWAY! LOOK AWAY FOR GOD SAKES MAN LOOK AWAY! Live your life and make like this never happened. Thank God, Sweet Sister Mary never lived to see this day. I love OPERATION MINDCRIME and AMERICAN SOLDIER as well, but that photo is just too shocking for me. I don’t know who Geoff Tate is anymore. THE HORROR! THE HORROR!

        1. No you can DR. It is just different after this. That’s all. In the end, it is always just about the music. In fact, I can’t think of a QUEENSRYCHE album with a band photo on the cover so no worries. Great music supersedes it’s own musicians. I can still take in STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and VELVET REVOLVER even though Scott Weiland is the bigggest ……………………………

          1. No shit Richman. Scott Weiland. Now there’s a gentleman with a shit load of pizzazz who fucked it all up…3 times!!!

  3. If that’s what makes him happy, more power to him. Leave the Queensryche name to his former band mates who released one of the best albums of 2013. Besides, that’s gotta be the best vocal performance of a Kinks song ever. He still got the voice.

  4. Geoff Tate walked off stage at Rocklahoma. I’ve seen Queensryche 3 times and not once have they played “The lady wore black” or “Queen of the reich” Thanks for “Operation Mindcrime Live” over and over. Boring.

  5. I get the wig goes with the time period, but not only did he jump the shark looks like he ate it too!! Check out those buttons when he is sitting down. Lay off the wine and cheese man!!

  6. 2009,nyc.saw tate belt out neu regal w queensryche.awesome.dear Geoff,where have you gone?queensryche caberet,aweful.thanks for those early shows Geoff,but I gotta go now.

  7. Words cannot express. First knee jerk reaction was ‘jump the shark’ for me too. Mentioned in comments above, so at least I’m not alone. Anyone know when the lawsuit is going to conclude? Still very much hoping Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson retain the name before Tate manages to completely desecrates the integrity of the brand.

  8. I watched the whole thing, and it was painful. Also remember that Jason Ames (strumming the chords and singing next to him) is doing most of the singing while Uncle Vester sings under him. To add to the clusterf*ck that you saw, keep in mind that Jason Ames used to be married to Susan Tate, who is Geoff Tate’s current wife. You can’t make this sh*t up. One of the dancers (the bleached blonde, I think) is the biological daughter of Ames and Susan Tate, but when Susan married Vest, she dropped her last name and took Tate’s. Then she was briefly married to Parker Lundgren, who Tate brought into QR. They divorced and Parker stayed with the real QR when they gave Tate the boot.
    Soap opera.

  9. Eddie…I hope you are going to ask Geoff about this craziness…nothing else matters when he is promoting this as his brand of music, and actually touring with this crap…who would want to see this??

  10. He’s better off looking like a cross between Howie Mandel and a thinner version of the fat landlord from “Alice Sweet Alice”. The David Peel wig is a nice touch. What a goof.
