Jon Oliva -- Akron, OH -- December 7th, 2013

Date: December 7, 2013
Band: Jon Oliva
Venue: Ripper's Rock House, Akron, Ohio
Tour: Storytellers

I couldn't have asked for a better concert on my birthday. This was my first time heading out to Ripper's Rock House. It's a pretty nice venue. Drinks are cheap enough. The venue had Dio memorabilia everywhere, which was quite excellent. Ripper wasn't around during the show, but he was in the bar for awhile before things got started. According to some of the dudes I was standing near during the show, Jon Oliva was hanging out at the bar in the early evening too.

There was only one opener, and Jon went on around 9:30. The set was about the same as others got, except "Child in Time" was dropped. The show was a lot of fun. Jon told a lot of great stories, and it was just an intimate, casual sort of experience. Jon went straight from the stage to the bar when he was done, so I finally got a chance to meet him. That was definitely a lot of fun

Setlist

1. Father Time (Oliva)
2. Ten Years (Oliva)
3. Out on the Streets (Savatage)
4. Lady in Disguise (Savatage)
5. Summer's Rain (Savatage)
6. Jesus Saves (Original "DT Jesus" Version) (Savatage)
7. Strange Reality (Savatage)
8. New York City Don't Mean Nothing > (Savatage)
9. Tonight He Grins Again (Savatage)
10. If I Go Away (Savatage)
11. Hey Bulldog (The Beatles)
12. Miles Away > (Savatage)
13. Sleep (Savatage)
14. All That I Bleed (Savatage)
15. Look at the World (Jon Oliva's Pain)
16. Walk Upon the Water (Jon Oliva's Pain)
17. Fly Away (Jon Oliva's Pain)
18. Handful of Rain > (Savatage)
19. Stare Into the Sun > (Savatage)
20. Castles Burning (Savatage)
21. Chance (Savatage)
22. Alone You Breathe (Savatage)
23. Someone/Souls (Jon Oliva's Pain)
24. Can't Get Away (Oliva)
25. When the Crowds are Gone (Savatage)

The setlist was the same as other shows, although the "Child in Time" cover was dropped. It was on the set list for the night, but it was not played.

Nice. Same set in Joliet last night. Great show

Jon played a few extras during soundcheck. Really down to earth guy.

His rehab story was very funny.

People on the fence should go. He played close to 2.5 hours. Rare that anyone does that these days

Oh man, that's awesome about the soundcheck!

We didn't get a rehab story, but that's pretty cool, I'm guessing even his stories aren't the same each night. And yeah, anyone on the fence should go. It's just a really fun, really laid back experience.

He had Criss mail him pot while in rehab and Criss found an awesome creative way to do so.

Got some video from sound check and went back and watched it again.

In case anyone cares, Jon played A Little Too Far, Heal My Soul and Somewhere in Time from Streets in the sound check in addition to songs. from the Setlist

All songs I love and it was great to hear him play them for us.
