    TSO concert was incredible!!!

    I'm sure there are a few on here that have been to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The wife and I went last Saturday, it was our first time. All I can say is WOW!!! Well worth the price of admission! If you haven't been to see them, make a point to go. They do a Winter Tour every year starting on the 1st of November. Tickets usually go on sale in September. Here's a couple of vids from the show. Watch them in High Quality.

    Oh Yes, Sir...
    They are good. TV or media video just does not do them justice.

    They are just about as good as Taking SIR down to the range and putting a 50 rounds through it. (My little brother calls my Redhawk SIR)

    Just in case you may be thinking about doing your own "Wizards Of Winter" If you have a spare computer and this hardware to do your own.. Light-O-Rama. Control lights, music, and special effects.

  4. TSO concert

    I bought two TSO CD's, which were sold exclusively at Target. They put me much in mind of Mannheim Steamroller. I can imagine the videos do not do the group justice. I have to add TSO to Front Sight, Cirque de Soliel, and Mannheim to go to when I win the lottery.

    I went to their Memphis show last Tuesday, and I have to agree.

    However, the first 2/3 of the show got a little boring to me....IMO, it got a little "preachy", and reminded me of a Megachurch Christmas musical, coupled w/ a Miss State Fair pageant at times.

    However, they can most CERTAINLY rock, and their light choreography was top notch! I especially liked the "duelling pianos" act, as well as their rendition of "O Fortuna". I think that was my FAVORITE part of the show. EVIL.

    That one was really good as well as Dies Irea from Verdi's Requiem (A Night Enchanted). It was the opening song and went into March Of The Kings where to two guitarists and violinist were lowered down from the rafters. I also really enjoyed "A Last Illusion" aka "Flight Of The Bumblebee". The light show for that one was particularly good!! Yeah the narrator between songs got a little slow at times but the rest of the show made up for it!!!

    Yes and no...

    The FedEx Forum in Memphis has an across-the-board "weapons" ban, and they do a cursory search at the door. Had I been wearing mine, I could've easily gotten in. They asked me to lift my shirt, so I lifted only the front of it. Since I carry in the 4:00 position, they wouldn't have even noticed. I think the next time i attend an event, I'll tuck mine into my boot & shuffle in, then head to the restroom.

    I'm not so sure I'd be willing to chance it. It's been a few years since I've been to a concert of any kind, and if I start going again, I wouldn't let not being able to carry stop me from attending, especially if it's an artist or group I enjoy.
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
