Customer Reviews for Trans-Siberian Orchestra: The Ghosts Of Christmas Eve
An amazing Xmas outing
Did the people complaining below even listen to the band before seeing the show? TSO is known for being loud, over the top and theatrical. That's why many people pay to see their show. I laugh at those who thought the show was "satanic" because it used fire effects. And that "satanic" song that people are complaining about is Il Fortuna, one of the best known operatic works in the world. You can find it on their third album (reinforcing the idea that these people never even listened to the band. Was the pacing perfect? Not quite, but otherwise it was so much fun that my mouth hurt from smiling so much.
Over the top theatrics (in a good way).
Imagine if If Meat Loaf (circa 1977) and David Lee Roth had a love child and Pink Floyd let them use their stage. Great music, bombastic staging & effects and a terrific mix of Xmas tunes and well-known classical pieces.
Unbelievable- best show ever
Just came out of the TSO concert. Oh my god. Unbelievable energy, the music was energizing, a mix of soft fast slow hard. Simply perfect. 10/10. Best purchase of the year for us. Simply magical.
It was absolutely amazing!!!!
The best concert Iâ€™ve EVER been to. Itâ€™s like being at an 70s/80s rock concert but with Christmas songs! The drums and electric guitars were so thrilling. Old City Bar sounded soooo damn good!!! Like 1000x better than the song they recorded! It was magical! It was full of soul! My ONLY negative opinion is when the Christmas songs ended and they started some demonic looking performance, with flames on all of the screens, flames shooting out of cannons, a woman doing weird sexual movements in the flames in a nightgown on the videoâ€¦ It was so random and I didnâ€™t understand what that had to do with Christmas stories. If they would have said, â€œweâ€™re now gonna play some of our other popular songs aside from the Christmas onesâ€ that would have been better. â€œOhh okay. Got it.â€ But with children there for a Christmas performance, it was like â€œokay what is thisâ€¦ a little sexual and weird.â€ The rest was an amazing Christmas story! Would see again! The whole place was rocking!
Making An Impact
This was my first time seeing TSO live and I was completely blown away by The power, consistency And versatility of their presentation. They are way more musically gifted than I could've imagined with impeccable-no mistake timing of their powerful, energetic, passionate style never missing a note! The vocal versatility and quality hits at every inner emotion that we all carry and it's so enjoyable to feel this once again. The Tech Show is tantalizing and lends to the Energy as well. If you don't leave their show feeling way better than when you first entered, then y'all need to go back to Art's 101 and start all over. They are an Artistic Treasure and especially in these times I highly recommend everyone to go watch their performance whenever available. A special hand to Asha.
TSO - So Much Talent, Technology and Beauty. Loved it!
Was totally enthralled with the talent, the visuals and the fantastic musical arrangements. Christmas never sounded or looked so good! Someone commented, "a little heavy on the religion." I don't know what that means, but Christmas...really? The two female lead vocalists were superb; different styles with equally strong impact. Guitarists and fiddle player were top tier and pivotal to the show. The piano player was great, totally focused with unbelievable energy and style. The other singers and dancers added a classy element in every appearance. We're going to make this show a tradition for the family every Christmas. "In the Hall of the Mountain King" was fantastic. Would be great to hear "Night on Bald Mountain." Well done, TSO. You are truly peerless in your art.
