Oliva: “It has been far to long since I have had the chance to perform in the US and were going to pull out all the stops. My voice is in the best shape of my career, the band is kicking ass and performing with Zak, Circle II Circle and Manticora makes it that much more exciting. I’m really looking forward to getting re-acquainted with the “Legion” once again…it’s gonna be a blast”!
