JOP-C2C-Manticora: U.S Tour Press Release


Jan 23, 2004
The Mountain King prepares for battle!

Jon Oliva's Pain, Circle II Circle and Manticora are finalizing
details for the first leg of their upcoming US tour. Both JOP
and C2C are out in support of their new CD releases "Global
Warning and " Delusions of Grandeur". This will mark the first
time that Oliva has toured with JOP in the U.S. in 4 years and
nearly a decade since he has shared the stage with Zak Stevens!

Fans can expect a heavy assault of Savatage classics including a very special set with Zak Stevens. The tour kick's off at Bourbon Street Nightclub in New Port Richey, Florida on September 20th and then on to the prestigious Progpower USA Festival in Atlanta from September 25-27. More U.S shows will be confirmed soon!

Oliva: " It has been far to long since I have had the chance to perform
in the US and were going to pull out all the stops. My voice is in the best
shape of my career, the band is kicking ass and performing with Zak, Circle
II Circle and Manticora makes it that much more exciting. I'm really looking
forward to getting re-acquainted with the "Legion" once's gonna
be a blast"!
