My First TransSiberian Orchestra Concert


What a wonderful experience! Their music is amazing! Their showmanship, unmatched! As a native New Yorker, the Christmas season begins with Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and was marked at some point by The Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall. But I have been transplanted in the west for a very long time now. Many traditions have been lost solely by proximity.

I have heard others rave about the TSO show in Las Vegas for years, but have never attended. I have loved their music for as long as I can remember, and have watched their Christmas special on PBS for several years, now.

But since I've seen them live, I cannot go back. I now have my new Christmas tradition. Count on seeing me with tickets in hand, waiting to get in the door whenever they are in town!

There was no bad seat for this show inside the Orleans Arena. But we had the BEST seats - 2nd tier, straight across the arena from the stage! A bit far away, but you saw everything without having to turn your head.

And the show was a true spectacular! We got so much more than our money's worth! These men and women played music for over two hours!!! WOW! I am completely blown away! I hope they make a stop in Vegas for their Spring "Night Castle" Tour.
