Operation Mindcrime 2017-2018 Tour Dates and Footage
« on: July 17, 2017, 10:38:11 PM »
Looks like some 2017 Operation Mindcrime tour dates are happening this month beginning this week according to the web site. I hadn't noticed these before. There appears to be one solo show and the rest are billed as Operation Mindcrime. The third record of the trilogy is due out in September so I am guessing there will be more dates forthcoming.

They are seven shows into their run of July dates now, I can't fuckin believe that none of that footage has hit Blabbermouth yet. I've looked on you tube I haven't seen a damn thing from those shows. I think they only have three more scheduled dates left on this little run including tonight's show.

Here is a little look at the set lists, at least that those have been listed thus far on setlist.fm

Yeah AGREED those are much fucking better  ;D Todd wipes the floor with him these days, but I was just curious to hear Geoff on this months round of dates after taking a pretty decent length break from the OM band with his acoustic shows.  8)

That's what I was looking for  8) good find and here's two more that were able to be found thanks to that lead off.
Damaged https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBVxUHc-giI
Take hold of the flame https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVHo8qlcEPE

horrible audio recordings, that guy needs to get a better device or somethin, but it's all that is available so far so at least we have something.

As bad as the audio is on these, I wanted to see because it seemed with the Avantasia performance that he seemed to sound a little better like he was putting more effort into his voice and range. It appears to be the case I think. not too bad, I'll wait to hear some more.

Wishful thinking but I think he already has had a few resurgences over the years, I don't know that there's any more left in the cards as far as a return to any resemblance of his prime. However a little effort goes a long way, I'm sure he is capable of getting back to respectability at least, better than the last five years. Sounds like maybe he is at least trying. The Avantasia song was pretty strong both the studio and live version.

Anybody recognize the guys he has in the band other than Randy Gane and Scott Moughton. Who are the other guys on guitar, bass and drums? Hmmm Kelly Gray is not on this show either.

I searched pretty good by typing in the venues from this month's dates I couldn't find anything else. Some of these places sound really small.

7/13 Charlie's Bar and Grill in Olympia, WA
7/14 Sapolil in Walla Walla, WA
7/19 Spicoli's Grill and Reverb Rock Garden in Waterloo, IA
7/20 The Back Bar in Janesville, WI
7/21 Token Lounge in Westland, MI
7/22 Loud N Lima, Allen County Fairgrounds, Lima, Ohio. Those are the live links above)
7/23 The Forge in Joliet, IL
7/27 Brick by Brick in San Diego, CA
7/28 The Whiskey a Go Go in Hollywood, CA
and the last show is tonight
7/29 Count's Vamp'd in Las Vegas, NV

That completes this run of dates, no other video has been put up except Lima to this point and it has somehow stayed off Blabbermouths radar, go figure  :D

If Tate can sound like this until he eventually retires, I'd be happy with that!

Perhaps Kelly is still part of the road crew? When I saw him wandering around the venue during The Whole Story tour back in March, I asked him if there would be a proper O:M band tour.

He shrugged his shoulders and said "They're looking at July, but your guess is as good as mine", then walked away. In my opinion, he seemed a bit perturbed about the whole thing.  :-\

This is Tim Fernley on bass, isn't it? And the other guy on guitar could be the guitarist from the acoustic tour.

The one dude looks familiar, that might be that Tim Fernley you speak of. The guy playing the leads is Scott Mouton and he was the main guy that Tate brought with him on those acoustic dates. I'm wondering if he let Kelly Gray go or just happened to miss this particular show, or just skipped this short run due to other commitments, pretty interesting though.
