JON OLIVA Talks To OnTrackMagazine (Audio)

David Priest of OnTrackMagazine.com recently conducted an interview with Jon Oliva (mastermind of SAVATAGE and JON OLIVA'S PAIN, co-creator/songwriter of the TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA). The chat is now available for streaming using the audio player below.

Fan-filmed video footage of JON OLIVA'S PAIN performing a cover version of the DIO classic "Rainbow In The Dark" as a tribute to legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio (DIO, HEAVEN & HELL, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW) on July 17, 2010 at this year's edition of Zwarte Cross (Black Cross) festival in Lichtenvoorde, Holland can be viewed below (courtesy of "ErhanLiveMetal").

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 Jon 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.
