Queensryche performed their classic 1988 album “Operation: Mindcrime” in its entirety on ShipRocked 2011, the music and lifestyle cruise which set sail from Fort Lauderdale, Florida on November 14 to the tip of Mexico, returning five days later.
The special performance of “Operation: Mindcrime” covered all fifteen songs from the album, including “Revolution Calling”, “Operation: Mindcrime”, “I Don’t Believe In Love” and the closing track “Eyes Of A Stranger.” The band also performed a greatest-hits performance that took place on another night of the cruise.
Performing Pamela Moore’s parts in her seminal role as Sister Mary was Maria Brink of In This Moment. Maria Brink stated about joining Queensryche for the ten-minute song, “Suite Sister Mary”. “I [was] so excited and grateful for this amazing opportunity to sing with Queensryche on the ShipRocked cruise! All of us in (In This Moment) are huge Queensryche fans, and Geoff Tate is one of the best lead singers in the business. Getting to sing ‘Suite Sister Mary’ off the original ‘Mindcrime’ album is a huge honor.” Check out the footage:
