This was my first time seeing this group, so I do not have anything to compare it to, but my wife and I was throughly impressed with the show. We had floor seats and got to see it up close and personal, it was better than any rock concert I have ever been to. We already have a date to see them next year as soon as tickets go on sale. Truly amazing.

Best TSO show I've been to yet, The Theme was very moving and the music and vocals were outstanding. Bring tissues.

As far as talent is concerned...10 on a scale of 10...NO DOUBT! These people are GREAT! However they may need to learn a little Humility, there were several request for the audience to respond to what they were doing on stage...well, the crowd at Sprint was very sophisticated...I mean they were not just going to give up free responses, the band has to earn it..and Frankly at times they were not earning it. Lots of "Cocky" posturing all night, it seemed as if the crowd wanted to show more appreciation but the moment was often lost in the mist of the band's "Self Love". The show was a little long, however if they had thought of having an intermission time, it would have been a lot easier on audience to set through. Other than that the music was GREAT! 4 star!

I've been to so many TSO Christmas concerts that I've lost track. Needless to say, I love TSO and they are now part of my Christmas tradition. The Lost Christmas Eve story is somewhat of a bummer, and the music to this story isn't quite as moving as Christmas Eve and Other Stories(hence the 4.5 stars), but the show itself makes up for it! They blew our socks off at the Verizon Center! They are high energy and uplifting! They will always get my Christmas $$$ as they are the few that still put Christ in will never hear Happy Holidays at their concerts! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I've seen this production seven times and have always left so pumped up, but this year, there was something lacking. There was not as much interaction with the audience as in the past and the spirit of the performance was lacking. First half is usually the Christmas portion which was awesome with a grand light show. The second half is usually their time to really rock, which they did not do this time. All and all, I was disappointed as I know what they are capable of which is a lot.

My husband and I, both in our early 40s and musicians ourselves, were really disappointed by the Philly show. We were expecting to see an ORCHESTRA...not the attention seeking guitarists, soloists and electronic violinist that had us grimacing through most of the show. We are pretty positive that most of the images used in the "castle"graphics were direct copies of concerts from the '80s, in fact, the whole show had this early 1980s, raspy untrained vocals, oddly dressed, televangelist narration, crazy flame throwing, wild attention seeking guitarist, Milli Vanilli vibe. I had a hard time not laughing through a lot of it and my husband nodded off during the painfully boring solos. It was WAY over the top in every respect including the flames, computerized light show and the robotic hair whipping backup singers. I mean, what? You want to see a GREAT rock orchestra go to see Peter Gabriel and the New Blood Orchestra. THAT is a truly awesome show not TSO. So painful to the senses!
