Operation: Mindcrime II
QueensrÃƒÂ¿che returned to the studio this summer to record the long-anticipated sequel to 1988's acclaimed concept album Operation: Mindcrime. Praised by critics and certified platinum, the original remained on Billboard's album chart for more than a year and its dynamic music and powerful message still resonate today. In conjunction with the April 4th release of Operation: Mindcrime II, QueensrÃƒÂ¿che has planned a full summer/fall tour for 2006. The tour, presented by VH1 Classic, will feature a full stage show, including surround sound, new video imagery and actors playing out both parts of the Operation: Mindcrime saga.
What is the rock opera about?
Rock, Revenge, RedemptionÃ¢Â€Â¦ the long-awaited sequel. Queensryche's 1988 opus Operation: Mindcrime is a musically adventurous rock opera revolving around Dr. X, a political puppet master who brainwashes Nikki, the story's main character, to assassinate corrupt public figures. The story also includes Nikki's lover, Sister Mary. A former teenage prostitute who becomes a nun, Sister Mary is murdered mysteriously, leaving the cliffhanger, "Who Killed Sister Mary?" Set 20 years after the original, Queensryche's new 2006 studio album, Operation: Mindcrime II, explores Nikki's fate after being released from prison and reveals the identity of Mary's killer.
