As we were on our trip to cover 70 000 Tons of Metal for the third time in a row, we knew that there will be a Metal concert in Florida: the first annual Florida Metal Fest at The Cuban Club in Ybor City in Tampa, this past Saturday, January 30, so we decided at the last minute to attend. The Headliners were none other than Florida’s Death Metal giants OBITUARY, but during the show we were shocked and surprised at the same time when they announced a very special and unpredictable guest, A Metal God: JON OLIVA, the SAVATAGE Legend (who is currently performing with his new band Jon Oliva’s Pain. So we couldn’t help but take the camera and capture few pictures for this historical moment.

Jon Performed two SAVATAGE classics: “City Beneath The Surface” and “The Dungeons Are Calling”.

Some fan-filmed videos that also surfaced on YouTube can be seen below.
