Queensryche is set to release their first Blu-Ray: Queensryche: Mindcrime At The Moore on Rocktober 18.
Filmed in front of the band's hometown crowd in Seattle over three nights in 2006, the story of Nikki, as originally told on two albums: 1988's Operation: Mindcrime and 2006's Operation: Mindcrime II is the story of one of the most enigmatic characters in the history of Progressive Rock. Nikki's a junkie, a political revolutionary and an assassin. His relationships with Sister Mary and the manipulative Dr. X form the backbone of a complex tale that is told at the Moore Theater with actors, staging and film.
3 hours long, recorded in DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby Digital 5.1, with three bonus extras including a tour documentary, a version of "The Chase" from Los Angeles with the late Ronnie James Dio as Dr. X, and "Queensrÿche Rock'n'Ride" (a documentary on the band's charity motorcycle event). Mndcrime At The Moore is a killer high-definition disc that fully presents this mammoth stage production the way it was meant to be told. The band—vocalist Geoff Tate, drummer Scott Rockenfield, bassist Eddie Jackson and guitarists Michael Wilton/Mike Stone are augmented by Pamela Moore as Sister Mary and the aforementioned Dio who only performed as Dr. X that one time and was shown on film for the rest of the tour.
The 32-song show ends with an additional two-song encore of fan favorites "Jet City Woman" and "Walk in the Shadows." The two critically acclaimed Mindcrime records have sold over two million copies in North America alone.
