KatieFronted by Geoff Tate (Queensrÿche) the seven-piece supergroup also includes John Moyer (Disturbed) and Simon Wright (AC/DC and Ronnie James Dio).

Tate strutted onto stage looking very dapper in shirt, waistcoat and tie and pulled no punches as they began their set with “Anarchy-X”. He and the band delivered a commanding performance, delighting the crowd.

Their mammoth 23-song set consisted in the main part of Queensrÿche classics (including their name-sake “Operation: Mindcrime”), plus a few tracks from their debut album The Key which was released back in September. Fists were pumped, choruses were screamed at the stage and by all accounts everyone had a brilliant evening!

Singer / songwriter Simon Kaviani played a short but powerful acoustic set to open the show, followed by melodic hard-rockers The Darker My Horizon who treated the crowd to a fun and upbeat performance, including a fantastic cover of Dylan’s classic “Knocking on Heaven’s Door”.

One Machine frontman Chris Hawkins really got the crowd going as they played an animated set featuring songs form their recently-released sophomore album The Final Cull[apologies to One Machine for the initial errors which we have corrected – Mosh]
