    Trans Siberian Orchestra - What a show!!!

    We started a holiday tradition in 2007 of attending the TSO concert every year. Last night was our fifth time at the show. And we are fans for life.

    About 15 minutes before the show, one of the road crew introduced himself to Gus and explained that part of his job is to pick a child to watch the last song from the front row, and did he want to be the child tonight? And he made sure that we were planning to stay to the very end of the concert.

    Gus was very excited as he figured this would put him in a good position to maybe catch a used drumstick.

    Even better!!!

    The band gives an autographed guitar to one child in the audience at each show and last night it was GUS! We were in the right place at the right time.

    I'm thinking that at some point I'll be designing a TSO inspired quilt now.

    It was a great show with an incredible finale. And while I'll try to fix the fuzzy on the second picture, I'm thankful that I did stick a camera in my pocket at the last minute...

    I know what you mean about a great show. I went a couple of years back with my daughter and family, and I could not believe the show that they put on. WOW. If anyone ever gets the chance to see their show, do not pass it up. You will not be sorry. And what an experience for your son. That is such an honor to get onstage with the performers. And to get the guitar. Wow

    We have gone to the show every year since they came to San Diego, this year they did not come, so we are very disappointed. We even considered going to Las Vegas to see them. Decided if they don't come to San Diego next year we may go to the next closest venue.

    It's not a mistake, it's an unconscious decision to change the pattern.
