Geoff Tate‘s The Whole Story “Ryche” Acoustic Tour is about to hit the US after a very successful European run. On this tour, Geoff Tate will present his upcoming all acoustic show with himself, backed by a 6-piece acoustic band of musicians from the United States and Ireland and will feature three guitar players, mandolin, cello, saxophone, violin and multiple percussion instruments to produce a high energy acoustic version of some of the heavy metal genres most recognized songs that include Silent Lucidity, Jet City Woman, Empire, I Don’t Believe In Love and Eyes Of A Stranger.

Tate and Company will be performing at Jammin’ Java in Vienna, VA on February 15th and Brainfart favorites Brave have been tapped to be the support act. Brave is currently working on new material for their next long awaited full length album. Lead vocalist/keyboardist Michelle Schrotz had this to say:

“Being given the opportunity to open up for Geoff Tate is such a huge honor for me personally and for the rest of the band. We are all huge Queensryche fans and I especially have always so much admired Geoff’s voice. The way he uses his instrument is so inspiring and together with the music of Queensryche, it was always just a perfect combination for me. Growing up through various stages of my life listening to Queensryche for the last 20+ years, it’s going to be a really special show for me and the band. We look forward to working on a special acoustic set to open for Geoff’s acoustic versions of Queensryche songs.
