TSO CONCERT!!! December 18, 2006

Posted by lotrking in Other Random Stuff.

To those who were wanting my “official” report of the TSO Concert in OK City on Friday: It was beyond AWESOME!
As is usual, the laser-lights and pyrotechnics that accompanied the music were spectacular. The music itself sounded better live than it did on the CDs.
For the first act, they performed most of their first CD: Christmas Eve and Other Stories.
The second act was almost all instrumental. About half of it was from their upcoming CD Night Castle, including the best version of “O Fortuna” I have ever heard! The other half of the second act was music from their other CDs The Christmas Attic, The Lost Christmas Eve, and Beethoven’s Last Night. Toward the conclusion of the show, the two pianists had a “duel;” one of the pianists broke out into the “Charlie Brown Theme,” the rest of the band then accompanied him in a full rock version of the song! (I laughed the whole time, only TSO could pull off a rock version of Charlie Brown!) If TSO has yet to come to your town this year, I highly recommend that you get tickets, it is likely to be the BEST live performance you will EVER see!
Long live TSO and Paul O’Neill!

For those who don’t know, Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) is a rock band that performs mostly Christmas music. About half of their songs are rock remakes of Christmas Carols and Classical Music. The other half is original music. They are (imo, of course) the best music group in existance. If you have never heard of them, I highly suggest you listen to some of their music samples. TSO was founded by Paul O’Neill in 1996.
