December 23, 2016


The Labtv Ireland got a chance to sit down with the legendary Geoff Tate before heading out for his World Tour....Geoff talks about how he met his new Tour Band "The Band Anna"- a Cork based acoustic Band. Tate also explains why Cork City is his favourite Irish City.

Geoff Tate rose to fame with the progressive metal band Queensrÿche, who had commercial success with their 1988 album Operation: Mindcrime and 1990 album Empire. Tate is ranked fourteenth on Hit Parader's list of the 100 Greatest Metal Vocalists of All Time. He was voted No. 2 on That Metal Show's top 5 hard rock vocalists of the 1980s. In 2012, he won the Vegas Rocks! Magazine Music Award for "Voice in Progressive Heavy Metal".

Queensrÿche was signed to EMI in the summer of 1983,[8] with a contract spanning 15 years and encompassing seven albums.[10] EMI re-released the EP, Queensrÿche, to moderate success, peaking at No. 81 on the Billboard charts. With Queensrÿche, Tate had great successes, especially with the concept albumOperation: Mindcrime, which was released in 1988, and 1990's Empire. The band has sold over 20 million albums worldwide.

Today Geoff Tours around the world with different bands almost every year and this year he is with The Band Anna.
