Awesome show with quite a few surprises! Main focus was on the incredible "Streets" album, first time I heard my favorite Savatage ballad "If I Go Away" live (Jon dedicated this one to Criss). Also great to hear "Summer's Rain"! The 2 Beatles songs sounded great too, Jon mentioned he's a big fan of The Beatles. "Only You" is a song Jon wrote for a planned movie soundtrack, but the movie project was never finished and so the song was never released.

Definitely a night to remember!!! Jon's voice sounds still great after all these years! But It was quite shocking for me to see him going out of shape that much... But that doesn't matter, as long as he can sing and play so good! Also great musicians in his band!

The Support Band was "Seducer" from Germany, also with an acoustic set. Among own songs, they played great cover versions of "The Number Of The Beast" and Dream Theater's "Wait For Sleep". Show Time: 20.45-21.15
