Win A Ticket For Geoff Tate @ City Winery On 2/20/2017

The Details: You know that you have a lot of love for the legendary voice of Geoff Tate who led us to many albums of Metal greatness on the microphone with the band Queensryche. Now as a solo artist, Tate has formed a band called “Operation: Mindcrime” where he plays that iconic album along with other classics and he was most recently seen in a Metal super combinant known as “Trinity” but this my friends is something completely different. You see Geoff is now on an acoustic tour which is labeled “The Whole Story” and with this event you are going to hear the songs you love and get some background on their history. Think of this as something like the “VH1 Storytellers” premise. What makes this all the more awesome is that thank to the marketing mavens at the City Winery, a few lucky PiercingMetal Fans will be seeing this show for absolutely free. This concert ticket giveaway is the first ever between the website and this venue and I am stoked about that for sure. Read on for rules and such.

When and Where: Monday, February 20th at City Winery (155 Varick Street, NYC). 6:30 doors 8pm show.

Geoff Tate Announces The Whole Story “Ryche” Acoustic Tour 2017

The dates for this tour started popping up just recently and I wanted to get the official press details out to your attention. Check out the skinny on the acoustic tour by legendary Metal vocalist Geoff Tate.

The Press Release:
Beginning Sunday, January 22, 2017, multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Geoff Tate will be embarking on an extensive U.S. tour that will be highlighting songs from all 17 albums he has done throughout his illustrious 35 year career. Geoff is regarded as one of the most skilled vocalists in the rock genre with hundreds of modern, popular artists citing him as a major influence. He is the original singer for the band Queensryche, which he fronted for over 30 years.

Geoff will present his upcoming all-acoustic show with himself, backed by a 7-piece acoustic band of musicians from the United States and Ireland — featuring three guitar players, mandolin, cello, saxophone, violin and multiple percussion instruments — to produce a high energy acoustic version of some of the heavy metal genre’s most recognized songs including “Silent Lucidity,” “Jet City Woman,” “Empire,” “I Don’t Believe in Love” and “Eyes of a Stranger.”

Win A Ticket To Trinity @ B.B. King Blues Club On 11/27/2016


The Details: The combined vocal power of Geoff Tate, Tim “Ripper” Owens and Blaze Bayley are united under the touring project known as Trinity and New York City Metal fans are going to lose their minds as the former front men of Queensryche, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden stand together on the same stage. Classic songs are par for the course with this one and I don’t think that they have ever toured together before. Speaking frankly it’s been years since I’ve seen any of them perform as well and that makes me happy to announce that thanks to the powers that be at the venerated B.B. King Blues Club, several readers of the PiercingMetal site are going to see this show for free. Read below on how to participate.

When and Where: Sunday, November 27th at B.B. King Blues Club 7:30pm (237 West 42nd Street NYC)

To Participate:
In the past I have stuck to a standard of giving me three things about the performer that was being showcased but with three titanic artists I am going to have to test your mettle just a little bit more. With this one I would like you to give me two things that you like most about each of these performers. You can do three if you like for better reading but two is a must and please number and label them properly. Make it good stuff and not the whole “cuz they rule dude” because that is just not trying at all and will make me question your skills. Please note this is for a single ticket only and no plus one requests will be honored. Sorry to do that but hey if you win you can always help your friend pay for a ticket or buy them something to drink inside the venue (provided you are of age to do so). I’ll be selecting winners from the submissions and letting them know directly below their entry. Kindly review these guidelines.

Win A Ticket To See Geoff Tate’s Operation Mindcrime @ Gramercy Theatre On 3/1/2016

Poster - Geoff Tate at Gramercy Theatre - 2016

The Details: You know his voice full well from decades behind the microphone of the mighty Queensryche but now the great Geoff Tate is commanding a whole new band and bringing you classics along with the newness under the moniker of “Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindcrime”; He’ll be bringing you a rock solid show at the Gramercy Theatre to start our March Metal Madness off properly and thanks to the powers that be at Livenation, PiercingMetal is stoked to put a few lucky fans into the show for free. Read more below on what you need to do to enter this contest.

When and Where: Tuesday, March 1st at Gramercy Theatre (127 East 23rd Street NYC)

To Participate: Despite the dramatics that went down with Tate and Queensryche, the time has come for all of us to move forward and appreciate the music. With Geoff being responsible for so many awesome Metal moments over the years I want you to tell me what your three favorite Tate tracks might be. They might be super old or they might be super new. It’s up to you of course and since its personal there is no right or wrong answer to give. Heck we might even be in agreement on some of them. You can expand your thoughts on what Tate means to you as a performer because I want the diehards to be in attendance for this one. Make them solid to read more than just a plain old “because they rock man” because that is just too un-original and boring. If you’ve been a fan for many years I want to hear from you. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer and yes this is a surprise quick contest so how lucky are you guys. This is for a single ticket only and no plus one requests will be honored. Sorry. If your attending absolutely must have a plus one, I will ask that you do not enter.
