Ever since COVID-19 hit, Tampa Bay (well, Clearwater specifically) has gotten three different tastes of ex-Queensryche frontman Geoff Tate performing the jams that put him on the map.

As for the current iteration of his old band, Todd La Torre—a St. Pete native—took Tate’s place 11 years ago, and recently appeared on Digital Noise Alliance, his fourth album with Queensryche. These days, the metal pioneers’ setlist is fairly short, but nonetheless agreeable between OG fans and ride-or-dies.

Tickets to see  Queensryche play Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, Florida on Sunday, April 16 are still available for $27.50.
