CLEARWATER - Multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Geoff Tate brings his latest solo tour to the Capitol Theatre in downtown Clearwater’s Cleveland Street District on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m.
Geoff Tate is best known as the creative and driving force behind the progressive metal band Queensrÿche. The world has changed a lot in the decade since Geoff Tate’s self-titled solo debut in 2002, and nowhere is that more evident than on Kings & Thieves, released in November.
Only the second solo album of a legendary career that spans four decades, the album is a journey into the mind of one of rock’s most dynamic vocalists and, like every good journey, there is plenty to make us take notice along the way.
“I wanted the record to have a groove to it, a feeling that it connects with you physically, rather than just connecting with your logic or analytical thinking. I wanted it to be a record that you feel and makes you want to move. I wanted to do something with my name on it, something that is a reflection of just me. The beauty of a solo album is that there aren’t any expectations,” says Tate of Kings & Thieves. “A solo album can be its own thing and doesn’t have to live up to some success you had 30 years ago, and that can be free and liberating.”
