ProgPower USA fans are known for their passion, knowledge and fervor for the bands and the music they love. They know everything possible about the history of their favorite artists and follow them religiously throughout their careers. But have any of you fans ever wondered what it would be like to crawl into the mind of the writer, witness the actual writing process and creation of demos, and then hear the final mix live? Well, now you can...and it can only happen at this year's ProgPower USA Festival by none other than the Mountain King himself, Jon Oliva! Oliva, along with Christopher Kinder (Drummer and Producer for Jon Oliva's Pain), will take you on a two hour journey as they discuss the construction process of a new song, record the tracks, and mix that song live...a song which will appear on a future JOP record. Fans will get a once in a lifetime look into the mind of one of the world's most gifted singer/songwriter. Everything surrounding the writing and recording process will be performed live right in front of you. A question/answer/meet-n-greet will commence immediately at the end of the event! This rare glimpse at the creative process of the Mountain King will take place at 5pm on Thursday, September 13, 2012 at Vinyl located within the Center Stage Complex in Atlanta, GA as part of the ProgPower USA XIII festivities. Tickets will go on sale to ProgPower USA sponsors & Gold Badge Holders on March 17, 2012 via Ticket Alternative. Any remaining tickets will be made available to the public on March 19, 2012. Only 150 tickets will be available for this seated event. Further event information can be located at www.progpowerusa.com. PLEASE NOTE: NO audio or video recording will be allowed.
