Geoff Tate confirmed to Misplacedstraws.com what he also said to Rockpages.gr in a previous interview, that he will be playing Queensryche’s “Empire” album in its entirety next year. “I’m planning on touring in 2020 very heavily — sort of doing kind of what I did with the ‘Operation: Mindcrime’ 30th-year anniversary, going to as many countries as I can and playing the album in its entirety, which I’ve never done before. So that’ll be real fun. In fact, I think there’s some songs on that album that I’ve never, ever played live before, so it’ll be a treat — for me, as well, I think, for the audience too… I’m really looking forward to that.”
