Rare live footage of a 2002 festival performance by SAVATAGE featuring ANNIHILATOR guitarist Jeff Waters and vocalist Damond Jiniya is now available via YouTube. Click here to check it out. Waters was filling in for guitarist Al Pitrelli for a string of dates around this time and Jiniya was the replacement for Zak Stevens, now with CIRCLE II CIRCLE.
As previously reported, a Savatage fan has uploaded his video library of band-related footage on YouTube. It can be found here. It includes two rare pro-shot Savatage performances. Go to this location to check out the band performing 'Tonight He Grins Again' at the Tampa Music Awards in 1992. The clip is believed to be some of the best existing live footage of the band's Streets album line-up (Jon Oliva, Criss Oliva, Steve Wacholz, Johnny Lee Middleton).
The second clip is from a special VIVA TV broadcast filmed during The Wake Of Magellan tour in 1997 in Cologne, Germany. Go to this location to check out 'Turns To Me' performed by the Savatage line-up of Zak Stevens, Jon Oliva, Chris Caffery, Al Pitrelli, Johnny Lee Middleton and Jeff Plate.
