Interview: GEOFF TATE… Ahead Of Acoustic Cork Show! (+ WIN TIX) Posted: 24/11/2016 by John O'Brien
Legendary vocalist GEOFF TATE is no stranger to Cork, with many family and friends hailing from our proud City and area. So his upcoming intimate acoustic show in The Crane Lane on Tuesday the 6th December is long overdue. And the fact that he’s doing it to support and raise funds exclusively for Music Generation Cork City, with 100% of ticket sales going to the Mahon based music education programme.
The Archives Philip Morrissey recently spoke with the man himself about the show… his upcoming international Storyteller Tour… how he found his acoustic touring musicians (THE BAND ANNA) right here in the Peoples Republic… his recent OPERATION: MINDCRIME albums and upcoming tour with TIM ‘RIPPER’ OWENS and BLAZE BAILEY.
Check it out here…!!!
