Fan-filmed video footage of QUEENSRŸCHE vocalist Geoff Tate‘s November 1 solo performance at Penny Road Pub in Barrington, Illinois can be seen below.
Tate, who was fired from QUEENSRŸCHE in June after fronting the group for three decades, will release his second solo album, “Kings Thieves”, on November 6 via InsideOut Music.
Tate issued his first solo CD in 2002 on Sanctuary Records. Self-titled, the LP was a huge departure from the work he had previously done with QUEENSRŸCHE.
On September 2, Tate announced that he was launching his own version of QUEENSRŸCHE with RATT drummer Bobby Blotzer, former QUIET RIOT, OZZY OSBOURNE and WHITESNAKE bassist Rudy Sarzo and former MEGADETH and KING DIAMOND guitarist Glen Drover. Also on board in the new group are returning QUEENSRŸCHE guitarist Kelly Gray — who played with the band from 1998 until 2001 and also produced several of their albums — and keyboardist Randy Gane, who has toured and recorded with QUEENSRŸCHE and Geoff‘s solo group in the past.
