On November 7 at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach, California, the Geoff Tate-fronted version of QUEENSRŸCHE acoustically performed the entire setlist that was played by the original band during their 1992 "MTV Unplugged" show.

"Frequency Unknown", the new album from the Geoff Tate-fronted version of QUEENSRŸCHE, sold around 5,500 copies in its first week of release in the United States to land at position No. 82 on The Billboard 200 chart.
