The vast majority of us who have listened to the same band throughout the years undoubtedly feel that the band members do not belong in any other band, other than the one we are used to. Bruce Dickinson. Rob Halford. And yeah, Geoff Tate too.

While the entire gig showcased a stellar performance by all musicians, and I do mean stellar, in a sense it was still very disappointing. True, Geoff is showing signs of not being able to hit those trademark notes like he used to, but he compensates well for it. It doesn't really stand out unless you truly have the songs of old engraved in your brain, note for note. Sadly, we do and that was all the band seemed to want to play.

There was very little to promote solo or OPERATION:MINDCRIME work, which shows the band is missing the boat. While the band is obligated to play certain songs, the set list needs to be changed up radically to also allow room for growth of the new lineup. Several songs could have been dropped to make room for newer material. Otherwise, they are doomed to be a QUEENSRYCHE coverband for the rest of time. They definitely have the talent to widen a few eyes musically if they change things up.

Direct support came from Arizona locals the PETE CUMMINGS BAND. The band did a phenomenal set getting the crowd riled for OPERATION:MINDCRIME. Within their arsenal was "Bad Motor Scooter", "Cult Of Personality", "Ramble On", "Won't Get Fooled Again", "Bark At The Moon" and "Highway Star".
