Trans-Siberian Orchestra

Holy cow. If you have never been to one of their shows you MUST put it on your to-do list. This show was incredible. The musicians and the singers were amazing, the lighting was awesome, and the pyro was so hot we could feel the heat on our faces. Here is the link to their bios  The majority of the group has other gigs or solo careers and tours with TSO part time. The string section they used was the Amsterdam Strings, so I am guessing they use strings from each city. Makes sense why they were using sheet music and no one else was. The guitarist and the bass were from their own band, and A LOT of their fans were there. Rock and rollers with long hair and black t-shirts!  I felt like Brandon and I were the youngest people in the room, but there was a kid that was probably 10 sitting in the front row. His parents were smart enough to put headphones on him because it was loud!!  We had awesome seats, row six, dead center, so we could see everything. The only downside was that lights kept shining directly in my eyes and blinding me for a few seconds at a time.

Here are some pictures that Brandon took on his phone. We weren't too sure of taking photos but then everyone was doing it so next time he might take his big camera and get better shots.

I can't wait for next year's Europe tour!!

  1. These are GREAT photos! My iPhone doesn't do nearly as well - or maybe it is just the photographer :)
