I concur with a lot of the comments about the darkness of the show. This was NOT an uplifting holiday experience. The music was absolutely BLASTED out of the sound system and from the motions of the "musicians" on the various stages it was fairly apparent that much of the music was being piped in from a track. Essentially this is not a "concert" this is a visual production.

We saw the TSO show three years ago and I wanted to come back ever since. Unfortunately, the show has changed a lot and was not the least bit Christmasy. It was very dark and disjointed and so loud that I really think it damaged my hearing. I have no desire to see TSO in concert ever again.

1.0 star rating Johnny Clark Jr. from Dallas, Texas


Where to begin? Too ridiculous. Too loud. Musicianship was quite honestly terrible. And finally, this show is about as NON CHRISTMAS as you can possibly get. I sincerely hope this TSO thing dies a quick death as it is a waste of time and money and is apparently some metal band's last ditch attempt to pretend they made it according to the history I have read!! VERY SAD!!!

I had always wanted to see TSO. My girlfriend had in the past. The first part of the show was very good Christmas and holiday show. The rest suddenly erupted in Gargoyles, chants, fire breathing dragons, etc. It destroyed the ambience they had built up in the beginning acts. Will not see it again if this is the format they use going forward

Nothing wonderful or beautiful about that show was all about dragons and fires everywhere!

I can’t believe I paid $700 for 4 tickets to see such a dissapointing concert. We saw them in concert 4 years ago and it was wonderful. This time, The music was so loud that we couldn’t understand the words they were singing the majority of the time. The story was over half way through the show and we should have left then. The head banging music started and was so over the top it was deafening. The satanic music and hair flipping by musicians who constantly asked crowd to cheer for them was ridiculous. This is the last time I will ever go to one of their concerts.

Where to begin? I guess with the fact that this is not an orchestra. There was a small string section, but that's about it. I don't know what I expected when I saw that it would be Xmas music and a laser light show, I guess I should have been prepared. I titled this review—who is this show for—because of the weird mix of 80s hair metal bands (notes of Rush, Van Halen, and Metallica were heard for sure) paired with Christmas (Christ, religious language and classic songs, symbolism, etc.) would SEEM to alienate one side or the other. The crowd was mostly white, 40-60 years old, so the long hair, heavy guitar licks, and posturing on stage seemed out of place? The laser light show wasn't bad, some of the pyrotechnics good, too, the musicians obviously talented. The videos on the screens felt like the were stolen from a bad video game. And the whole story (and VERY bad spoken-word poetry) didn't convey a message—dinosaurs, the industrial age, The Old Tow Bar (what the hell) was confusing.
