GEOFF TATE To Sing National Anthem At Washington’s Evergreen Speedway Tomorrow

Geoff Tate (QUEENSRŸCHE) will sing the American national anthem on Saturday, July 14 at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington.

The NASCAR KN Pro Series West will start the second half of its 2012 season tomorrow night at Evergreen Speedway.

The start time has been moved up an hour to accommodate the four divisions/series. 5 p.m. is when the racing will begin, with spectator gates opening at 2 p.m.

Evergreen Speedway is located at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe where Highways 2 and 522 collide.

For tickets and information, go to or call 360-805-6100.

Tate previously performed the U.S. national anthem on October 14, 2007 when the Seattle Seahawks hosted the New Orleans Saints at Qwest Field. Video footage of his rendition can be seen below.

The singer, who is currently embroiled in a legal battle with his estranged QUEENSRŸCHE bandmates over the rights to the group’s name, recently signed a worldwide recording contract with InsideOut Music.

Tate is currently finishing production on his first InsideOut Music release. The album is planned for release this fall, with details to be announced in the coming weeks.

QUEENSRŸCHE members Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson, Scott Rockenfield and Parker Lundgren announced on June 20 that they were parting ways with Tate and recruiting powerhouse vocalist Todd La Torre of CRIMSON GLORY as his replacement. The new QUEENSRŸCHE lineup has already performed live, having played two successful shows in their home city of Seattle under the name RISING WEST.
