Trans-Siberian Orchestra!

Went to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra last night at the Medowlands (now named the Izod Center (how ridiculous!)) We got floor seats for the 8 PM show, and what a show it was! I try to get tickets every year for this as it has become a Christmas event for us! As always the show ROCKED! Every SHOW I've seen, they've brought out a special guest at the end, last time it was Joan Jet, last night it was ROGER DALTREY! Get out!!!! YES! Together they did 3 songs, Behind Blue Eyes, Pinball Wizard, and See Me, Feel Me. Roger was totally on his game last night and it was a thrill! I can't recommend this show enough. If you haven't heard the Christmas album "Christmas Eve and Other Stories" you must RUN OUT RIGHT NOW AND BUY IT!!!! It's a rock opera, and the lyrics will make you cry, but the music will make you ROCK!
