I still have a lot of the old stubs...I was looking for Badlands but couldn't find them, but I did find Jake E Lee from 1994 at Hurricane Alley in Houston...$7.

Several of the shows I attended didn't have tickets. Just give money and get your beer-drinking wristband.

True....I saw Savatage at the 19th Hole on their last tour and basically just paid a cover charge to get in.

My first concert was Nelson at the Civic Colesium in Knoxville, TN. Enuff Z Nuff opened for them.

My last was ProgPower VI in Atlanta, GA in September of 2005. Stratovarius, Angra, Pink Cream 69, Symphorce, Conception, and Circus Maximus rocked Earthlink Live! \nn/

As you know, I'm a huge Sava fan, but I've only been into them since 2002. I havn't seen a full Savatage show, but I did see the reunion with Doc Walchoz at ProgPower V in 2004. They played under the name of Weapons of Mass Destruction. It was something due to their management, blah, blah, blah...

I saw them back in 90-91 at a small club in Houston during the Gutter Ballet tour. John Oliva was still a skinny dude at the time, and Criss Oliva and Chris Caffery were both in the band. I also saw them later that year with Testament and Dead Horse at a larger venue. Another amazing show. A funny thing about Testament's set...Chuck Billy spent the whole evening spitting into the air and catching it back in his mouth...very impressive. :lol:

Yeah, Epica is the Saturday night headliner. I hope he puts up a really good power metal act on Friday night. I'd prefer Masterplan, but I think they're too expensive for him.

You're a lucky man getting to see Criss in his prime! :cry:

Do you think we'll see another Savatage album or do you think they've thrown the towel in?

I'm leaning toward some Live DVD/CD compilation, but that's it. I think those guys are too busy making the big bucks with Trans-Siberian Orchestra nowadays.

I don't know Strat, you seem to be pretty familiar with their music! Are you sure you're not a closet fan? 8) :lol:
