Geoff Tate To Perform Queensrÿche‘s Entire ‘Rage For Order’ And ‘Empire’ Albums On 2020 Tour

Geoff Tate will perform the QUEENSRŸCHE albums “Rage For Order” and “Empire” in their entirety on the “Empire 30th Anniversary Tour” in 2020.

1986’s “Rage For Order” introduced a much more polished look and sound for QUEENSRŸCHE. The album featured keyboards as prominently as guitars, and the group adopted an image more closely associated with glam rock or glam metal than with heavy metal (of which glam metal was a subgenre). A video was filmed for the song “Gonna Get Close to You”, originally recorded in 1984 by DALBELLO.

Released in 1990, “Empire” included the hit ballad “Silent Lucidity”, which reached No. 9 on the Billboard singles chart, helped propel “Empire” to No. 7 on the album chart and earned two Grammy Award nominations.

Confirmed “Empire 30th Anniversary Tour” 2020 dates so far are as follows:

Feb. 21 – Jergels – Warrendale, Pennsylvania Feb. 22 – Mount Ponoco – Mount Poncho, Pennsylvania Feb. 23 – Town Ballroom – Buffalo, New York Feb. 26 – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Feb. 27 – The Warehouse FTC – Fairfield, Connecticut Feb. 28 – Stereo Garden LI – Patchogue, New York Mar. 01 – Tupelo Music Hall – Derry, New Hampshire Mar. 04 – The Haunt – Ithaca, New York Mar. 05 – The Beachland Ballroom and Tavern – Cleveland, Ohio Mar. 06 – The Token Lounge – Westland, Michigan Mar. 07 – Arcada Theater – St. Charles, Illinois
