Nothing wonderful or beautiful about that show was all about dragons and fires everywhere!

1.0 star rating Diane from Worcester, Massachusetts


I can’t believe I paid $700 for 4 tickets to see such a dissapointing concert. We saw them in concert 4 years ago and it was wonderful. This time, The music was so loud that we couldn’t understand the words they were singing the majority of the time. The story was over half way through the show and we should have left then. The head banging music started and was so over the top it was deafening. The satanic music and hair flipping by musicians who constantly asked crowd to cheer for them was ridiculous. This is the last time I will ever go to one of their concerts.

Where to begin? I guess with the fact that this is not an orchestra. There was a small string section, but that's about it. I don't know what I expected when I saw that it would be Xmas music and a laser light show, I guess I should have been prepared. I titled this review—who is this show for—because of the weird mix of 80s hair metal bands (notes of Rush, Van Halen, and Metallica were heard for sure) paired with Christmas (Christ, religious language and classic songs, symbolism, etc.) would SEEM to alienate one side or the other. The crowd was mostly white, 40-60 years old, so the long hair, heavy guitar licks, and posturing on stage seemed out of place? The laser light show wasn't bad, some of the pyrotechnics good, too, the musicians obviously talented. The videos on the screens felt like the were stolen from a bad video game. And the whole story (and VERY bad spoken-word poetry) didn't convey a message—dinosaurs, the industrial age, The Old Tow Bar (what the hell) was confusing.

I was a huge TSO fan, until last night. I am not really sure what I was watching last nite, some 80s hair band up there flipping their hair around as if that was impressive(I'm a fan of short hair NOW). They were totally off their game, and it seemed as they new that. The earlier show must of not gone well for them. Terrible show.

I saw TSO a couple of times pre-pandemic and loved them. Last night (in Sacramento) changed that. The concert was only a shadow of what they were before. It was loud but understandable. It was full of Christmas music and entertaining. Then the edibles must have kicked in because the second half was crazy! Way too loud! It was like late 70’s heavy metal/acid rock that really had no theme or direction. It was not enjoyable! I will not see them again and will not recommend seeing them to others.

A few interesting riffs but the quality of voice and harmony are definitely NOT first rate. The choreography consists of the lead guitarist prancing about while the others wildly gyrate and motion for recognition. The audience was NOT enthusiastic to say the least. The story-line is stale and rambling, difficult to follow, and lacks coordination and clarity..the Christian message of the Holiday is lost in the exaggerated efforts of the group to appear talented or effectively directed. Do we really need to know the names and hometowns of everyone in the show? At about 30 minutes you could see many feeling uncomfortable and a few heading for the peace-on-earth of the parking lot.

I hate that I spent so much money for my family to see this show. I seriously have been wanting to see them for years and was so looking forward to it. The theater used has terrible acoustics which probably made it worse than it was. The message did NOT feel like Christmas at all. It's pretty bad that we got up and left before the end.
