IN THIS MOMENT Singer To Perform With QUEENSRCHE On 'ShipRocked' Cruise

Seattle progressive rockers QUEENSRCHE will play their classic 1988 album "Operation: Mindcrime" in its entirety on ShipRocked 2011, the music and lifestyle cruise which will set sail from Fort Lauderdale, Florida on November 14 to the tip of Mexico and its popular stretch of gorgeous Caribbean water known for scuba diving, shopping and bars aplenty, and return five days later. Performing Pamela Moore's parts in her seminal role as Sister Mary will be Maria Brink of IN THIS MOMENT.

"We've always enjoyed performing for our fans in intimate settings and the forthcoming ShipRocked cruise will certainly be one of those occasions," states QUEENSRCHE lead singer Geoff Tate, who returns with the band for their second ShipRocked cruise. "We're calling this one 'Mutiny On The Mindcrime.'"

The special performance of "Operation: Mindcrime", covering all fifteen songs from the album, including such fan favorites as "Revolution Calling", "Operation: Mindcrime", "I Don't Believe In Love" and the closing track "Eyes Of A Stranger", will be in addition to a greatest-hits performance that will take place on another night of the cruise.

Maria Brink is ecstatic about joining QUEENSRCHE for the ten-minute song, "Suite Sister Mary". "I am so excited and grateful for this amazing opportunity to sing with QUEENSRCHE on the upcoming ShipRocked cruise!" she says. "All of us in [IN THIS MOMENT] are huge QUEENSRCHE 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. This is going to be a cruise to remember!"
