Trans Siberian Orchestra, or commonly referred to as TSO, is currently on tour selling out live concerts all over the nation. The TSO winter tour of 2009/2010 made a stop in Austin, TX and Matt and Krystle were lucky enough to have been there. Here are some things that they have said about the concert.
The concert was amazing! They had the best set, the best musicians, and the best singers at the concert. They even showcased songs from their most current album, Night Castle. The concert had the most incredible lights, lasers, and pyrotechnics which made the concert unique and outstanding. The light show went along with the songs they were playing and were synchronized perfectly. When a guitarist would play and use the whammy bar, laser streams would light up the stage. Also, when the entire orchestra, guitarists, and main violinists would rock out the stage would light up and fire would be blasted from the stage. Without these effects the concert still would’ve been good, but the use of such effects made it even more incredible.
The guitarists couldn’t have been any better. They all had long hair which was always being used for head banging and flaring around. They would rock out with their guitars and moved and ran around the stage. Some of the best musicians tour with TSO and make up the band. One of the lead guitarists produced amazing rock bands such as Aerosmith. The guitarists had amazing stage presence and got the crowd involved with cheering and clapping. Angus was always pointing and smiling at Matt and Krystle.
There were two crazy and incredible violinists. They would play madly and wildly, run around the stage and the concert venue, and flare the hair around while rocking out on their violins. They had very interesting violins that must have been made specifically for the genre they play which is rock and roll mixed classical music. The violins were hollow. At one point during the concert Matt noticed that the girl violinist’s hair got stuck. Krystle also noticed that she was playing so hard that some of the strings broke on the violin.
The singers’ voices were beautiful. The girls could carry out any tune. One man who had a lot of solos throughout the concert, has toured and sung with Journey during his career. His voice was so strong and loud and represented the essence of rock and roll. He also had long hair that was never short of a hair flip or some type of head banging.
TSO is such an awesome rock band that transforms classical Christmas music for their concerts. Matt and Krystle would recommend anyone to go to one of their concerts and support their music. Not only are they a great band, but they are also very charitable. TSO donates proceeds from every concert to a local organization or school from every city they tour in.
