Geoff Tate, My Relationship With Queensryche in 2017
Geoff Tate talked about rekindling his relationship with former Queesnryche band mates after seeing them live with new singer Todd La Torre for the first time on June 30 in Barcelona. The singer told The press. “We actually had kind words to say to each other, hugs and handshakes. “I don’t know if that’s the beginning of the healing process. It’s too early to tell. “I can just say it was nice seeing everybody. It was good to actually be able to talk to each other.”
“On June 30, I was in Barcelona, Spain – I was playing with a band called Avantasia. “I did a guest appearance with them – they were headlining the Rock Fest Barcelona festival, and I read on the roster list that Queensryche was opening the festival. “So I went out earlier in the day and watched their set. It was the first time I’d seen the band play without me. I’d never heard their new singer.
“I watched them play and they were great, that singer is fantastic. He’s amazing! “He sounds just like me. It was eerie and weird. “And then I met all the guys afterwards and shook hands with them, we hugged and said hello, and it was a really nice little reunion, you know, get-together.”
