Somehow I forgot this one and my wife keeps pestering me to go back and write it. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of specific memories of it. I have seen TSO with my wife four times now and this was one of the less impressive concerts. Something just seemed to be missing and I don't know what it was. The scale of the concert seemed to be cut down, there seemed to be fewer musicians, fewer songs, and the theme seemed like a rehash of previous ones. I have no idea if any of this actually was true, but that is the way it seemed to me.
Of course the show was still entertaining. Trans-Siberian Orchestra are phenomenal musicians, including some amazing singers. And of course the visuals are always spectacular as well. The story this time around was about a young woman who broke into an abandoned theater for warmth where a man, who was likely a ghost, found her and helped turn her decide to go back to her family. And TSO did the usual two shows thing, following up the Christmas program with a much more rock-oriented show afterwards.
It was a good time, as it usually is, it just seemed somehow lacking this last year. Nevertheless, I am sure I will end up seeing them again.
