As the nation and our fair Metropolis are still battling the pandemic on many fronts, it’s not been all that easy to offer up the same number of giveaways that we used to do in the before times. Slowly but surely we rise once more and are happy to share this latest one with our readers.
The Details: Geoff Tate is the original voice behind the influential Hard Rock and Metal band Queensryche and he possesses a supersonic vocal register that made albums like “Operation: Mindcrime”, “Rage For Order” and “Empire” blockbusters in the minds of many a concert goer. This solo tour will find Mr. Tate presenting in full the ”Rage” and “Empire” albums with a stellar band of players and thanks to the marketing team at the beautiful Sony Hall in New York City, some of the PiercingMetal readership will be getting the chance to enjoy this concert for free. Let’s go over some of the details on how you participate in this giveaway.
When and Where: Tuesday, January 25th at Sony Hall (235 W 46th St, New York, NY 10036) at 6PM.
To Participate: With Geoff Tate celebrating these two classic albums I am going to keep the focus on them for this giveaway. Here are the necessary agenda items. First, name the album which is your absolute favorite of the two of them. Then I’d like you to line out four of the album tracks from them and tell me a little bit about why they are your favorites on the records. This means you can say three from “Empire” or vice versa. As long as you type “4” of them into the response. As a bonus response you can add what two tracks you hope Geoff might surprise us with from any of the other bodies of his musical work. That means his other Queensryche albums or even his solo efforts. I think that is simple and straight to the point and makes for some good reading once all is said and done. Please refer to the guidelines below as its important for this type of giveaway.
– Enter only once. Comments are moderated and don’t appear immediately after submission so be patient and don’t enter numerous times. You should see “your comment is awaiting moderation” once you submit it. It will appear once I approve it. Make sure you are entering a NEW comment and not replying to another contestant’s entry.
– Number the requirements for ease of knowing if you followed the instructions or not.
– The entry should be a good read, so a sentence or two of facts that make up your required three items. Saying “because it rules dude” will not impress me and not help your cause.
– Please enter your full real name in the comment form along with an email address that you can be reached at if you win. This is super important because I will be sending you a confirmation email and sharing with the house in case they have last minute audience updates. We stress that you do NOT place this information in the comment itself out of privacy concerns.
– Only enter if you really have interest in attending and its possible for you to do so. This is a NYC performance so if you live a couple of hundred miles away we don’t think you should be entering.
– Subscribe to the comments and check back to see them so you know if you won or not.
– Compose your entry on a text editor and then paste it into the comment form so you don’t lose any work. We’ve learned that sometimes a mobile feed is tricky so be sure to have a strong signal or use a laptop.
Get to work because this one will close by Monday afternoon on 1/24/2022 or if the provisions are depleted before that time.
