  • Notes - "Surprise Show" which became a full Savatage warm up show for Brazil earlier in the week. Mr. Oliva (Jon's dad) was in attendance. Power went out during the intro to Morphine Child, causing a five minute delay. The song was then restarted. Jon tries to leave the stage following Chance, but Chris insists that the set ends after Gutter which means there was only one encore instead of two.

  • Notes - The band is off the charts for this show. Jon addresses the crowd during Labyrinths saying "it's good to be home..." Following EOT, Chris lets the crowd know that it's been about 10 years since he stood on the Jannus Landing stage with Savatage. He states, "St. Petersburg, Tampa Florida, home of Savatage, you guys f'n rule!!!" He continues on joking, "actually I think half of you guys, I've crashed at your house once or twice... I owe you money..." and continues on introducing Jack Frost and local boy Damond Jiniya. Jon ends Awaken by saying "you rule!" Damond takes us back to the old school by stating, "... it's good to be back home. I'll be sleeping in my own bed real soon..." Old school medley rocks. Following the old school, Jon thanks Fates Warning by saying, "those guys are super cool and they are a hell of a lot of fun at parties too... Right now I would like to do something, for my brother," leading to If I Go Away. Jack is limited doing the Morphine Shuffle because of the weak Jannus Landing stage. Jon introduces the EOT/HOR medley by saying "this is actually the last song I ever wrote with Criss, we have to make Criss part of the show..." leading to Miles Away. Before Chance Jon thanks the crowd for coming out and says, "it's time we all take a chance." Believe is just awesome. Following Believe, Chris makes a great speech, thanking everyone in the band, the fans and Criss (mp3 below), leading to Temptation Revelation. Jon reminds everyone during the intro to Gutter that "he remembers it." A great version of Mountain King ends an amazing show.

  • Notes - Following EOT, Caffery apologizes to the crowd for being away from Orlando for "too f'n long." He continues on by introducing Jack Frost & Damond Jiniya, leading to All That I Bleed. Following Awaken, Damond takes us back to the old school by saying, "Orlando, it is good to be back home, back to the land of the sacred mouse. Back to where the woods are burning, I love it, it's home..." leading to Sirens... adding "Do you feel you're captured Orlando" before Grace of the Witch. Jon addresses the crowd before If I Go Away. After Morphine Child Jon says it's been way to long since they have been in Orlando. Miles Away/He Carves His Stone are dedicated to Criss Oliva. Damond comes on stage with Mickey Mouse ears during HOTMK. A still shot of Damond with the ears is later used on monitors around the theater.

  • Notes - Following EOT, Chris introduces Jack & Damond, leading to All That I Bleed. Following Awaken, Damond takes us back to "the old school of Savatage." Following the medley, Jon gives the crowd some of his famous screams and says, "This is a special night for us, so we are going to try something we haven't done on this tour yet. As a matter of fact, this will probably make my friend Clay Marshall very happy, so we're gonna give it a shot..." leading into If I Go Away. After IIGA, Jon says, "We have a new album out called Poets and Madmen, I'll give you one guess who the madman is. It's not me...This song is the story behind the album, it's the hardest song we ever recorded. We spent months recording it, and we are probably going to spend months playing it..." leading to Morphine Child. Miles Away and He Carves His Stone are dedicated to Criss Oliva.

  • Notes - Jon goes into a quick version of Labyrinths before Handful of Rain, while Chris changes guitars. Following EOT, Chris states "Good evening Rochester f'n upstate New York" and proceeds to ask the crowd if they like the new album. He then introduces Damond and Jack and takes us back to the EOT record. As Jon starts to play ATIB, someone hands him a cigarette and he asks "do you have a light too?...No... This just hasn't been my f'n day today." Chris leads the crowd into saying "awe too bad Jon..." Jon responds, "Hey eat my shorts, here we go," finally going into ATIB. Damond announces the "old school of Savatage, some of the first Savatage songs I ever heard, some of my favorites," leading to Sirens. Before MC, Jon addresses the crowd saying, "It's been a very long time, I only have one thing to say... How've you been?" Someone in the crowd screams, "I want a DVD." Jon responds, "So do I, if you get one, let me know and I'll buy one to" and then introduces Morphine Child. Before Miles Away, Jon thanks the crowd, Fates Warning and their crew because the day was a "total nightmare." For the encore Jon comes back on stage looking for Chris. Chris lets us know "I'm over here now..." No Believe, so the encore starts with Temptation Revelation. Jon asks, "how much you got?" during the intro to Gutter. No screw up tonight. No Chris solo before Mountain King.

  • Notes - Chris comes on stage wearing his TSO Tux. Jon starts out after EOT, "Good Evening F****n Cleveland." Chris joins him, "Didn't actually think I was gonna come here without the Tux?" He announces that Poets hit the top 100 in America. Introduces Jack Frost & Damond. Chris says, " it's good to come to Cleveland and be able to swear, I couldn't say it on the TSO tour. . . F***, F***, F***ity, ****, ****." Great version of Awaken with Jon and Damond both doing lead. Before the medley Damon says, "Alright Cleveland, How are ya? It is my honor to announce the next medley of songs, these are songs from the old school, they are the first Savatage songs I've ever heard... we are gonna start this whole thing off with a song called Sirens." Chris goes into 12/24 and says "Wait, that's not Sirens." After the medley Jon goes, "Cleveland Rocks, Cleveland Rocks," then introduces the Morphine Child. Jack does more of a Morphine Stomp, then a Morphine Shuffle. After Morphine Child we get "Cleveland is METAL!!!" from Jon. Set ends with Jon once again reminding us that "Cleveland rocks and kicks ass." Jon dedicates Believe to Chris Caffery. Great version of Gutter Ballet featuring "Cleveland kick my ass!!!" Jon comes back for the 2nd encore and says "You're not getting f'n tired are you? I cant hear you! Oh Yeah! We are going to do something that we haven't done in years and years, if we f*** it up, f*** it..." Chris goes into his "Wusssssssssssssssss up" gimmick, with Jon responding, "Nothing." Chris continues, "We are about to play some f'n POWER OF THE NIGHT." This was awesome. Jack & Damond stage dive at the end of HOTMK. An amazing show.

  • Notes - As Commissar begins, Kyle (guitar tech) lights up "Frank's" (Frankenstein doll sitting on Jon's keyboards) cigarette. Damond recovers quickly after the mic cord falls out during EOT. Chris gets on the mic after EOT, "Good evening Niagra falls, NY, USA. . . This is the 1st time ever in Niagra for Savatage, let me here you it is Friday ****** night. . . This is a little over the first week of the Poets and Madmen tour and we're happy to see the legion coming out in strong f'n numbers, not only in Niagra, but everywhere." Jon chimes in with a few keyboard notes. Chris then introduces Jon. Jon responds, "Are you guys ready to go f'n nuts out there tonight?" Chris introduces Igor on "lead t-shirts in the back." After the first verse of All That I Bleed Jon says "you guys sound f***** killer." Great version of All That I Bleed. In the beginning of Awaken Jon toasts Niagara Falls. Following the medley, Jon states, "We have a great time playing those oldies, it's a lot of fun. But the night is still young, Niagara Falls, the night is young. Say Hello to Frank. This is my newest band member, Frank. Frank doesn't do shit, but he keeps me out of trouble. . ." referring to the Frankenstein doll. Before Miles Away, A fan screams out "Damien." Jon responds, "DAMIEN!." During the intro notes of He Carves His Stone, Chris screams out, "It's f'n hot!!!"

  • Notes - Commissar CD Intro skips, Chris picks it up at the solo. Jon is still a bit under the weather. Labyrinths is briefly played as the piano interlude before HOR. Chris introduces Damond and Jack after EOT. Jon does lead on Awaken, adding a laugh and acknowledges the crowd in the middle of the song. Someone requests "Grace of the Witch" before the medley, Jon responds, "Sure, why not, coming right up." Before Morphine, Jon suggests that everyone goes and gets the new album because "Christ knows we need the money." For the first encore, Jon comes back and says, "We're gonna have some fun.... We're gonna do a song that we have never done on stage before. If we f*** it up, please forgive us and buy us a drink later, all that shit. So we're gonna have some fun anyway, cause I get to f*** around with my new synthesizer, my brand new synthesizer. . .This is called There In The Silence." Damond does lead. Damond does lead on all of Gutter. No 2nd encore, Jon just says some thank you's after Gutter, and Caffery goes into HOTMK. Venue house lights come on for this song, pretty aggravating to the band and techs.

  • Notes - Some technical difficulties before HOR so Jon comes up with some keyboard stuff. The barmaid verse tonight features a "waitress." Chris addresses the crowd before All That I Bleed. He mentions that it's been a long time since Savatage has been in Rhode Island, "That is without a Santa Claus hat," referring to the 2000 TSO show. He then introduces Jack Frost and Damond Jiniya and then takes us back to the EOT album. Jon plays, some "party music" going into ATIB. Jon gives us a very sick sounding "oh yeah," leading into Awaken. Damond does lead on Awaken because the Mountain King is still a bit under the weather. Damond takes us back to the "old school of Savatage" leading into the medley. Following the medley, Jon says, "We have a good f'n time playing the oldies...f'n A man... You never forget your roots and we sewed a lot of roots up here in Rhode Island," then introduces MC. Damond thanks the crowd and Fates Warning prior to Miles Away (as the crowd chants for Believe.) Heal My Soul once again takes the place of Believe in the set. Damond does all of Gutter once again. Good show, the band was having fun tonight.

  • Notes - Jon has a pink flamingo on his keyboards. Long Piano interlude after Surrender because of Guitar problems with Chris. Jon stops, and addresses the audience. Chris says, "The Flamingo ate my tuning." After EOT, Chris says, "How the hell you doing Long Island, I dressed just for you guys tonight (see pictures). . . We have some new faces with us tonight, look a brand new face, Mr. Jon Oliva. . ." Then continues to introduce Damond and Jack. Damond does lead on Awaken. Damond introduces the medley by saying "Are you ready for some old school? Are you ready for music from the Reagan era, back when metal was f***in metal. We are going to do some songs from that era for you. . ." The Morphine Shuffle is limited because of the small stage, but Jack still tries. After Chance Jon says, "There's no room to hide so f*** it. I'm going to do something completely different. . . And now for something completely different. . . I'm gonna try something here, I haven't done this for a while, so we'll see what it sounds like, f*** it, you know what I mean" and goes into "Heal My Soul. Gutter is interesting. Jon asks "How much you got on you" to the rest of the band, referring to him not messing up the intro. Damond does lead on the entire song for the first time adding "as the fire fades away." Following Gutter Jon says, "Sit down Jeff, there's no point. I heard this joke on the way down. . . that's the joke. Please excuse Chris Caffery, he's been drinking for the last 3 days." Chris responds, "Please excuse Jon Oliva, he's been drinking for the last 42 years." Jon adds "and my liver feels great." Chris thanks the dude who was giving him the finger earlier by saying "I guess his boyfriend was trying to pick me up before. . ."

  • Notes - Jon is very limited on vocals because of a cold. Piano interlude before HOR. Jon introduces Jack and Damond before All That I Bleed. Damond handles lead vocals on Awaken. Damond introduces the melody as "We're gonna do some stuff from the old school, we're gonna do some old songs for you, that are dark." Before Morphine Child, Jon says, "We have a new album out, its called Poets and Madmen, its available in stores right now. Go out and get it. Buy 2, 3, 4 5... Buy them for your friends, family, neighbors, even people who don't like it." Set cut. Only one encore, HOTMK.

After Chance, Jon says, "this is the third show of the tour, and you guys are the best audience yet." Chris addresses the crowd before the encore saying Hi to Frode (a fan from Norway who made the trip to see the first few shows) who is at his 50th show. Jon introduces Believe as "It's time to get really serious, this is a really deep subject," then starts playing some comedy stuff. Great version of Gutter, with Jon adding his usual lines and introducing Chris before the solo. Jon wants to see "everyone in this ****** place losing their ****** minds" during Mountain King. Great crowd, great show.

  • Notes - No break after Surrender, Jon goes into a piano interlude before HOR. After EOT Jon says its time to get crazy after being locked in their cages for a while. Local boy, Jack Frost, is introduced as their "newest victim." Damond does majority of the lead on Awaken. Damond introduces the old school medley as "Were gonna do some songs from the old days, from the good old days, the Reagan era." Jon introduces Morphine Child as being a "whole lot of fun at parties." The Morphine Shuffle makes another appearance. Jon flubs the intro to Gutter Ballet once again, leaving Chris to say "The old mans still got it." Jon laughs his way through the first verse of Gutter.

  • Notes - First Show with Damond Jinyia & Jack Frost. Jon addresses the crowd after Surrender, "Its been way too long. . . " Handful of Rain features the "missing" barmaid verse. Wake Of Magellan cuts at the counterpoint and goes right into DWD. After 2 minutes of DWD, Jon goes into EOT. Jon introduces Jack & Damond after EOT saying "Jack has been picked on constantly for the last weeks so go easy on him." He refers to Damond as their "newest victim." Awaken is a bit more dark with Damond adding background on the chorus. It also features Caffery's guitar solo at the end that was cut off the studio version. Damond introduces the old school medley as songs "that I first heard, when I first heard Savatage. Some of the best songs I've ever heard." After the medley Jon says it's the first time they have played on stage in 2 1/2 years because they have been "locked up in jail (the studio)." Jack debuts the "Morphine Shuffle." Damond nails Miles Away and He Carves his stone. Jon comes back for the encore and says "We're ready to play. . ." Caffery & Oliva exchange introductions and Jon goes into Believe. Great version of Gutter. Mountain King features Damond's horns.
