Biography

Report GMM2012: Vooraleer de eerste noot gespeeld is, springt deze show al in het oog door de blinkende witte piano vooraan op het podium. Het licht gaat uit en daar verschijnt de vriendelijk excentrieke nonkel dracula om met rake horror pianoriedels het publiek op te hitsen. De band neemt zijn tijd. Ze zijn rijp en de ervaring druipt eraf. De welgemeende metalballads worden met brio opgebouwd door de samenspannende gitaarvirtuozen. Sing along with the man behind the piano! (Pieter Lambrecht)


GMM2012 - Savatage's metal masterpiece "Hall of the Mountain King" was released in 1987. Then came the brutal debut release from Doctor Butcher in 1995. Now after 25 years, Jon Oliva and his Pain will bring both these albums to the Graspop Festival stage in 2012 as they perform an anniversary assault of music from both iconic records. Along with HOTMK and Doctor Butcher, the band will perform additional Savatage and JOP songs and continue to celebrate the life and work of JOP's recently departed guitarist and brother, Matthew LaPorte. The lineup will consist of Jon Oliva (vocals and keys),Christopher Kinder (drums), Jerry Outlaw (guitars), Jason Jennings (bass) and a very special guest guitarist to be announced soon!
The Mountain King returns once again to the Graspop Stage for this once in a lifetime show...Don't miss it!
