Queensryche Starring Geoff Tate
A heroin addict named Nikki wakes up near-comatose in a hospital. As the fog begins to lift from his mind, he struggles to recall how he got there. The facts are blurry: a secret society who brainwashed people into carrying out political assassinations. A prostitute-turned-nun who was eventually killed. Is Nikki the culprit of these sinister acts? To find out, he has to go back through the dark recesses of his memory and tell the tale from the beginning.
Although it sounds like a cryptic take on The Manchurian Candidate or a love letter from that weird neighbor with the tinfoil hat, it’s actually the plot of Queensrÿche’s 1988 rock opera, Operation: Mindcrime, which Kerrang! magazine voted one of the 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All Time. Upon its release, the ambitious work blew the minds of fans and critics alike with its fusion of heady prog-rock, full-bore metal, and poetic and politically conscious lyricism. The song cycle garnered a Grammy nomination for the single “I Don’t Believe In Love,” inspired a sequel, and proved that metal could be both brainy and brawny. In these days of shuffles and singles, Operation: Mindcrime is the type of album that demands to be swallowed whole.
Backed by a new lineup of metal all-stars, including bassist Rudy Sarzo of Ozzy and Dio fame plus guitarist Kelly Gray and keyboardist Randy Gane from Geoff Tate’s first band, Myth, the recharged Queensrÿche takes audiences through its greatest hits.
####House of Blues Dallas To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s _A Dream Come True_. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture and thoroughly caffeinated phantoms.
