Saying Goodbye to Arizona

Sad to say I was a little disappointed with the Farewell performance of Geoff Tateís QUEENSRYCHE. While the band was top notch, it just didnít feel like anything was there. They werenít a cover band per se, but the vibe kind of flirted with that from time to time, as they seemed to be going through the motions. The crowd would get riled up for a favorite song or two, but then go to the bar for a few songs, or out to the casino to smoke, etc.

Having two big guns in the band as well, Rudy Sarzo on bass and Simon Wright on drums, it was also disappointing to see them at the Talking Stick Resort as this venue is at a 650 capacity max. Nice place, donít get me wrong, but I figured they easily could have packed another venue in the valley at least double that size.

Regardless, the band was spot on with such classics as "Best I Can", "I Am I", "The Needle Lies" and "I Donít Believe In Love". The momentum and crowd enthusiasm seemed to fade a bit with "Silent Lucidity", "Della Brown", and "Cold" which is off Geoffís QUEENSRYCHEís album Frequency Unknown.

However, as his tour ends, itís time to move on. Now that the QUEENSRYCHE lawsuits are over and done with, Geoff will be returning with his band, renamed OPERATION: MINDCRIME, and has stated in interviews that the band will be going in to the studio winter í14 to record a conceptual three record Ďstoryí. Should prove interesting with Geoffís creativity at the helm.
