Commented Stevens: "It's always special to perform on the same bill with Jon Oliva, especially here in the States! Obviously, Jon has been a huge influence on my musical career and I remain one of his biggest fans. This tour will be a special event for all our fans that have enjoyed our work throughout the SAVATAGE years and now into the new generation of JON OLIVA'S PAIN and CIRCLE II CIRCLE music."
