REVIEW BY: Revan

This was my 15th time seeing Queensryche, I have watched them from the beginning, through all the highs, and all the lows.

Now true, the last several years since Chris DeGarmo's departure has left a very sour taste in the mouths of the fans, and the last few albums have been sub-par, (with the exception of Tribe, which I liked very much) Queensryche are now poised to strike for a comeback that will surprise and amaze all the naysayers.

There was no opening act, and the doors opened late. When Queensryche did start, they played an odd selection of songs from their past catalogue, but really nothing that was too impressive. Mostly selections from the Empire album, and a few oddly misplaced tunes. They ended their first set with “Silent Lucidity,” in which an orchestra accompanied them.

When we came back from the intermission, the stage had been re-arranged, and Operation:Mindcrime began. Although the songs remain mostly true to their original versions, the set has been completely re-imagined with the inclusion of actors, Pamela Moore's blistering backup vocals, and few new surprises. I don't want to spoil this for anyone, so I will just say that Operation: Mindcrime is back with a vengeance, and far surpasses the original 1991 spectacle. Definitely worth checking out.
