JON OLIVA'S PAIN AT THE RITZ YBOR ON SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 2012
JON OLIVA'S PAIN, the Florida-based band led by SAVATAGE mastermind Jon Oliva, will play SAVATAGE's classic 1987 album, "Hall Of The Mountain King", in its entirety at The RITZ Ybor in Tampa FL on Saturday, June 16, 2012. JON OLIVA'S PAIN is also expected to play several songs from DOCTOR BUTCHER, the early 1990s project created by Oliva and guitarist Chris Caffery at a time when they were not active members of SAVATAGE.
This is the only US show to see this rare performance before the band heads to Europe for festival dates.
JON OLIVA'S PAIN lineup for the performances will consist of Jon Oliva (vocals and keyboards), Christopher Kinder (drums), Jerry Outlaw (guitar), Jason Jennings (bass) and a very special guest guitarist to be announced soon.
"Hall Of The Mountain King" was the first SAVATAGE album to be produced by Paul O'Neill and it showed the beginning of the band's progressive tendencies as they explored new forms of expression in their music. Many fans consider this LP a turning point in SAVATAGE's musical identity.
Opening will be a fantastic Queensryche Tribute Band called Jet City with some very special guests sitting in. Pre-show and after party with “Retribution” featuring Damond Jiniya former lead vocalist of Savatage. Doors open at 7:30pm with Show at 9pm.
Tickets are available online for purchase here.
