Sellersville, Pennsylvania – Geoff Tate and his band, Operation: Mindcrime, left no audience member disappointed this evening, as he took to the stage in the sleepy little town of Sellersville, PA and performed to a sold-out, standing room only crowd at the historic Sellersville Theater.
Till Death Do Us Part opened the show with a 45-minute set that was raw and heavy, with Emily Tate on lead vocals, performing and singing with passion and range. Founded in 2016, singer Emily Tate teamed up with Scottish musician, Kieran Robertson to create a new type of synthetic heavy rock. “Cannonball” and “Ink” are definite downloads to go with the caffeine for the morning drive to work.
Till Death Do Us Part consists of Emily Tate on vocals, Michael Fechter on drums, along with Kieran Robertson on guitar and synthesizer and Jack Ross playing bass. Both of the latter would be featured later in the evening performing with Geoff Tate in his band, Operation: Mindcrime.
As the house lights dimmed, Operation: Mindcrime kicked off the show with “Revolution Calling” as the song sparked remarkable energy that infected the room throughout the night. Geoff played all the hits from Operation Mindcrime and Empire albums; “Suite Sister Mary” (featuring Emily Tate as Mary),”Best I Can”, “I Don’t Believe in Love”, “Empire” and “Silent Lucidity” just to name a few.
The band had everyone singing every verse. Geoff Tate is a remarkable showman and entertainer, and his vocal range is spectacular. I felt like I was at a rock concert and a Broadway show mixed all into one, with the way Geoff commands the room and gestures to the audience. His Daughter, Emily Tate, vocalist for Till Death Do Us Part, joined her father onstage for the song “Suite Sister Mary”, as the two just played off of each other with both passion and love.
Operation: Mindcrime includes Scott Moughton and Kieran Robertson on guitars, Jack Ross on bass and Josh Watts with smashing drums. If you haven’t witnessed their performance yet, put this one on your list as this show is a definite must see.
