The best concert I’ve EVER been to. It’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 video… It was so random and I didn’t understand what that had to do with Christmas stories. If they would have said, “we’re now gonna play some of our other popular songs aside from the Christmas ones” that would have been better. “Ohh okay. Got it.” But with children there for a Christmas performance, it was like “okay what is this… a little sexual and weird.” The rest was an amazing Christmas story! Would see again! The whole place was rocking!

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.

Loved the music, however the seats make a BIG difference do not get them near entry way. Show was great however the event handlers not so. Seats were located in the fourth row with stair way to the left and another one to the right. For the first 45 minutes a consistent stream of people going to their seats – this completely blocked the stage. After most got to their seats the up/down for concession kicked in

Great show, as usual. This was my 6th time seeing them and I brought alot of people to see them for the 1st time. I should of brought those people last year, instead! They had lots of mechanical issues this year(the stage where the drum set sits was supposed to hover down and during "Winter's Palace", 3 of the members were supposed to come down from the ceiling). They also had a couple other things that I noticed. I also thought it was strange that they played a Savatage song besides "Christmas Eve 12-24", this year. It just felt out of place. They also skipped one of my favorites like "The Mountain". Other than that, it still was really good! I just wish they brought their A game this year when I brought other people. I am still a fan, though

I took my family of 4 to see this show expecting some magical Christmas entertainment. I thought it would be more of an Orchestra with some rock band type themes mixed in. I was shocked to see the whole things was actually more of an 80's metal hair band group. The musicians and vocalist were extremely talented. However the show seemed to have an overall dark feel with racy dancers and promiscuous scenes flashing on the screens. The show constantly showed what I can only compare to the boat tunnel scene of the original Willy Wonka with all the psychedelic strange images constantly flashing across the stage screen throughout the night that made no sense and left you confused. The "story" they told throughout the first half of the show made no sense and was dark. The second half of the show seemed to try and imbed thoughts and insinuations of Satan with some even heavier and darker type music as well. My 9 year old told me as we were leaving....Mom that show was kind of devilish,

First time to see TSO - and Good King Joy rocked! i was reminded that if i pay attention closely i could see the story unfold and be enriched - or something like that. I have the DVD (thanks SIs!) Ghosts of Christmas Past - so i thought I already knew "The Story". Well it seemed it started with a story - but then about half way thru the show - the story ended. And Fire breathing dragons and red lights took over and seemed to usher in a satanic "message". So i need to ask TSO - what the hell do fire breathing dragons have to do with Christmas, ghosts, past? While the first female vocal was the highlight of the show, i felt after 20 years - and such awesome stage capability - the on stage visuals were amateurish at best and distracted from "the story". And yes - they could cut 5 minutes off the show if all the guitarists got haircuts. Other than that - PARKING SUCKED. UNNECESSARILY Funnelling all those people into two lanes is probably why the show had to start 30 minutes late.

I have wanted to see TSO for years. I found the first half nothing of what I expected and honestly could have left at any time. The second half proved to be more of what I believed to be their claim to fame. It was excessively loud and although the laser light show was fantastic I am glad I did not have any seizure issues as I was blinded on several sweeps of the lights. The talent is unbelievable but the push to amplify detracted from whole concert. I wish I had taken ear plug to dampen the decibel level which would have made it a better experience. Must reiterate the talent was exceptional
