    I am completely tickled that almost every time I've come to the Quilting Board recently, there has been an ad for TSO across the top. In December we have tickets for our fourth show. I started taking Gus when he was 7 and we've made it a fun family tradition - though he is a bit disappointed that we won't get to stay to meet the band this year as the concert falls on a school night (first time that has happened).

    Cheers, K

    DH has to work this year. We have been to 5 and I would love to go again. Our girls just love it! Enjoy and let me know how it is (but I know it will be great).

    Pictures from last year...

    This year I am not bringing a camera, will just enjoy the show. Out of 80+ pictures, I only got a few good ones, but enough for a scrapbook page.

    We have seats 8 row center this year on the floor. Last year we were on an aisle, and Gus high fived the singer (can't remember her name) as she came back from singing at the back of the arena. The only person she interacted with. He claims that he has not washed his hand since...

    Cheers, K

    I am sooooooo jealous! Unfortunately they do not come to our part of the country. The closest they have been to us is about 800 miles, and usually on a week night. My son saw them in Boise a couple of hears ago and he has 3rd row seats for this year. My daughter will get to see them in Cleveland and is pretty excited. Maybe some day . . .
    One of their CD's is a permanent fixture in my CD player!

    I just noticed, their ad is right above our writing space. I take little notice of it because I feel that if they are what is paying for our Internet service for this marvelous site, then let them advertise.
    If I'm interested I'll buy from them, if not then I'll ignore it.

    We went to see them year before last for our Christmas present. They were fabulous! I highly recommend this concert to every family, well worth the money.

    Every year that they have come to Tampa, I have not been able to go for one reason or the other. Mostly $, but my hubby and I were able to purchase the tickets and we did. I have them posted here next my monitor.. everytime I see them I get so excited. I can not wait.

    They are a terrific group but unfortunately I've not seen them in concert yet. I don't get to see them this year but at least have their music which is CONSTANTLY played.

    A few years ago, my adult son wanted to go to one of their concerts for his birthday. So my DH got tickets for the four of us(future DIL went also) We were in the 10th row. It was incredible! I loved all the light shows and the music. But it took a week for my hearing to be normal-it's like they were numb. I would definately go again, but wouldn't sit that close.

    Looks like Lexington, KY on December 1st or Indianapolis, IN on November 27th are the closest shows to you.

    Over the past two years, they cut down the number of cities, but not shows - with two shows a day in many locations.

    The band splits up to tour - so there is an East and a West tour which allows them to reach more cities during the holiday season.

    Cheers, K
