JON OLIVA: Footage Of Performance/Songwriting Clinic Available

July 3, 2010

Jon Oliva (mastermind of SAVATAGE and JON OLIVA'S PAIN, co-creator/songwriter of the TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA) took part in a special intimate performance/songwriting clinic on May 8, 2010 at Seminole Music & Sound in Seminole, Florida. Joining Jon was his longtime guitarist, Seminole Music's own Matt LaPorte, as they discussed and performed many of the songs that have helped define the legacy of this hard rock icon. There was a question-and-answer session, as well as a meet-and-greet/autograph signing immediately following the performance.

Video footage of the event can be found at this location. A couple of the clips are available below.

JON OLIVA'S PAIN's fourth album, "Festival", was released in North America on April 12. The CD, which was issued in Europe on February 19 via AFM Records, entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 87.

JON OLIVA'S PAIN will take part in a live-DVD concert filming at the 013 in Tilburg, Holland on October 15. Tentatively due in early 2011, the disc will be the first official live DVD release with Oliva handling all the vocal duties. It promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime show featuring an assault of SAVATAGE classics and the four JON OLIVA'S PAIN CDs.
