Once again, Danny Zelisko Presents is bring great live music to the valley, Queensrÿche with Geoff Tate will be performing their greatest hits from an extensive Queensrÿche catalog.
In a recent press release promoters also announced that the show will get underway with special guests, rock’s latest super group S.U.N., or Something Unto Nothing, featuring legendary Canadian singer Sass Jordan, former Whitesnake drummer turned guitarist Brian Tichy, bassist Michael Devin and former Godsmack drummer Tommy Stewart.
But Queensrÿche front man Geoff Tate is definitely leaing the charge with the band’s current tour and latest studio effort titled Frequency Unknown. Although “F.U.” might be perceived as a fitting tribute and salutation, it is, without question, a no-holds barred album of new music featuring original Queensrÿche vocalist Tate along with an entirely new line-up consisting of bassist Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot/Ozzy Osbourne/Whitesnake/Dio/Blue Oyster Cult), guitarist Robert Sarzo (Hurricane), drummer Simon Wright (AC/DC/Dio), guitarist Kelly Gray (Queensrÿche 1998 – 2001) and keyboardist Randy Gane (Myth). Now that is a KILLER line-up of talent!
F.U. contains ten new hard-hitting, distinctively Queensrÿche songs, four newly-recorded Queensrÿche classics and an array of well-known guests including guitarists Chris Poland (Megadeth), Dave Meniketti (Y&T), Brad Gillis (Night Ranger), Ty Tabor (King’s X), K.K. Downing (Judas Priest), Craig Locicero (Forbidden) and Chris Cannella along with drummers Paul Bostaph (Slayer/Testament) and Evan Bautista. Also appearing on the album is bassist Jason Slater, who has worked on several previous Queensrÿche projects with Tate including Operation: Mindcrime II and American Soldier. Slater co-wrote some of the songs on Frequency Unknown with Geoff Tate and is also the album’s Producer.
If you are a fan of this band, then don’t miss this one!
