Not your father's Christmas music

It must be the holiday season, Why? The TransSiberian Orchestra is back in town. They played the FedEx Forum Friday night, and, even though I'd seen them last year, I decided to go.

TSO played for three hours -- if you like them, you got your money's worth. They had rock fused with symphony. They had lasers, pyrotechnics and fog. They had gizmos that some of the group got on before they raised in the air. Mostly they had high energy and good music.

I gave a full review last year -- you can read it here.

Above: The solo violinist and one of the guitarists rode above the audience while they played.

TSO had a ton of good singers. Besides the women in the middle look to the left of the photo.

Photos by MOJO and taken with my P&S.


  1. TSO is one of my most played Christmas CD's. Love their music!

  2. It is funny how sometimes something out of the blue pops up in one's head. Happened here. But...

    Loge Seating ?????

  3. Call me a traditionalist but TSO is kinda meh to me. Interesting but nothing I would go out of my way for. Give me Nat King Cole and the Christmas Song and I'm happy.

  4. Some darn good photographs here, MOJO! I'm impressed. Looks like a lot of fun, but the loudness would probably be more than I could handle...

  5. What -- you left your sunny Florida weather to be with the rest of us mortals?

  6. Great pics Dave.. Merry Christmas to you.

  7. I'm with The Neophyte Mojo, but those are awesome pics!

  8. Thx to all who left a comment.

    @KenP: I ended up in the wrong seats (far to the side). The usher sent me in and said there would be another usher, but didn't happen.

    Happy holidays to all!!
