    Jon and Al are making a whole lot more money with TSO than they ever did as Savatage.

    I too was a big fan but I have to tell you TSO's live show is one of the most amazing I have ever seen and I have seen them all.

    I will be going to see them in Atlanta in a couple of weeks...never seen them before, but am really excited. I enjoy their music and hear that the lights and sounds are great...can't wait. Maybe this will become a new Christmas tradition for me!

    Trans Siberian Orchestra

    Yes, they will be performing at the arena here in Salt Lake City in December. Looks like they are making us a part of their regular tour.

    I caught their show here last year. A Great Performance!

    I guess most of you know that TSO is actually 2 groups during November & December right ?

    __________________________________________________ _______________


    Trans-Siberian Orchestra first toured in 1999, performing a handful of concerts in Upper Darby, New York City, Cleveland, Chicago, and Detroit. The next year, the two touring groups were formed, allowing the band to cover more ground in the short time frame Paul O'Neill allows the Holiday Rock Operas to be performed ( November & December). Trans-Siberian Orchestra has maintained the two-group format during those months ever since but reunites into the single band during the rest of the year.

    The two touring groups are informally known as TSO East and TSO West, although these descriptions are not entirely literal. Before 2008, for example, TSO West historically played in Atlanta and Florida. Both groups have appeared in Midwestern cities such as Chicago and Indianapolis.

    Shows on the orchestra's fall/winter tour are divided into two acts. The first act is a narrated performance of most of the songs from Christmas Eve and Other Stories. In the second act, the band performs a mix of songs from their other albums. The first tour to promote Beethoven's Last Night tour in the spring of 2010 & 2011 used a similar format, with a complete performance of Beethoven's Last Night followed by several songs from Night Castle.

    In 2009, Billboard ranked TSO as one of the Top 25 Touring Artists of the past decade.[6] Live shows are known for their extensive use of pyrotechnics, lasers, and lights synchronized with the performance, all of which takes 15 hours to set up.[7] They are very famous for these concerts, which are critically acclaimed
