This was a terrible show. I left halfway through. Was hoping to start a new Christmas tradition but this show was not Christmas related. Only guitarists and vocalists not good enough to be in a real band here. And I'm not even sure they were performing based on what I saw - I think it could have been just played from a track.

To Loud and what the heck were they singing or screaming! Show was awful. I’ve seen many concerts and besides cheap trick this was by far the worst

1.0 star rating Sean B from Seattle, Washington


Our show in Seattle was too loud, hearing damaging. But suppose you brought hearing protection, the audio production was still terribly mixed with peaking/clipping between vocals and instruments. Visual production was laughable, antiquated sets with early 2000s videos and ancient 3D visuals. They attempted to do some kind of storyline in first half of the show which makes little sense and ends abruptly midway through overall concert. Second half of the concert featured more of their classics, more enjoyable. Every completely original song was laughably bad in delivery, coming off feeling like parodies of 1980s hair metal, country, and a little bit of blues. Not sure who their "original" songs appeal to- they miss the rock-orchestral fans and they aren't good enough to stand up as original music in other genres. Overall, probably worst "high production" musical event show you could go to in 2023 outside Vegas. Can't recommend to anyone.

This being my first time at a live TSO event, I found It very unfortunate that the story teller gives the impression that the show is over as he concludes his story, which caused me and my family to leave the show prematurely. This was confusing and very unnecessary. A simple announcement by him or the emcee that there are 2 parts to the show would prevent this problem. This resulted in me and my family missing the experience of the second half of the show. Considering all of the time and significant expense involved in all of us attending this show it is very upsetting.

I've wanted to see TSO for many years and was thoroughly shocked at their demonic and sexual innuendos. The sound was defining. Thankful we weren't on the floor seats as it would have caused seizures, or at the very least a migraine. What was the purpose of the gyrating ladies on the overhead runways. Instead of a Rock and Roll Christmas concert that is ( I'm assuming ) their norm, seemed more evil and dark. What was the reason for the burning triangle? Subliminal for burning the Trilogy? The very end there were young blond ladies fawning over on elderly man at a piano,....looked like they were tempting him to hell, and the amount of flames and fireworks seemed to emphasize that. Then they looked right at the camera as if they were tempting the audience. the 1st half was bad enough, but the second half was just plain disturbing. I'm sorry that this is how a gift to my grandsons turned out. I would NEVER suggest this to anyone. What a total waste of money and time.

It’s misleading to call this an orchestra, or a Christmas show, or entertainment. My sister had tickets the previous weekend in another state and had to miss when she caught COVID. Lucky her. COVID is better than this show. The laser show was over the top with no build up or variation in the stimulation so in the end it’s like torture. The singing and instrumentals were awful, and the music is not Christmassy, joyful, or warm in any way. half the audience left early including our group. Tragic.

1.0 star rating Linda Bayley from Toronto, Ontario


Too reliant on a light show. Couldn’t see or appreciate the violins, keyboard, or drums as they were hidden behind flashing lights. If they had made better use of the screens (as in other live shows) we would at least have been able to see the guitar players, and singers. We were a group of eight and shared this opinion.
