On June 16th, Jon Oliva's Pain performed Savatage's album The Hall Of The Mountain King in it's entirety at the Ritz Theatre in Ybor City (Tampa, Florida). The show was filmed for an upcoming DVD release, but the band has issued the following call for additional material:
"If anyone happen to record any good video footage of the JOP Ritz show Saturday night? Well, if you know how to get it off your device and put it on a CD or DVD (as to put it in the mail to us), we'd be interested in seeing your footage and possibly using it for the official DVD of the show. Basically, we're interested in high quality footage that's not terribly shaky or have a ton of heads in the way. Please email email@example.com if you'd like to help us! Of course you will be compensated for your time and expense."
