But, we are taking kids and grandkids out for a magical day, and we are just as excited as they are! Everyone is headed out to see Trans Siberian Orchestra...yes, I said "everyone"...all 15 of us!
Just in case you aren't familiar with this show, here's a quick re-cap:
"The band's concert performances continue to surprise their loyal fan base with a combination of the arena rock spectacles of Pink Floyd and the musicality of Queen. TSO's music first approach, the music is first created and then the very best vocalist and musicians are sought from the classical, rock, broadway and R & B worlds, facillitates a cross pollination of musical ideas-creating hybrid forms of music which allow the rock operas to glitter in ways even the creators could not predict.
Billboard magazine praises TSO's winter tour as a "rock extravaganza that incorporates elaborate staging, metal mixed with Christmas Carols and dazzling visuals," while calling the group a winter stable. With it's timeless message, a sound that offers something for everyone, and audiences that cross all generational divides, TSO has become something that must-be-seen-to-be-believed."
Basically, what they are saying is that it's very loud and very bright. Even though The Hub and I are fans of this, I am thinking that a whole show of lasers, lights, fire and such will be a bit over the top (it's not Rick Springfield, for crying out loud)...but, whatever...the kids and grandkids are just beyond excited and that's what this is all about.
Followed by a big group dinner at The Olive Garden...a favorite for everyone.
Hope you all are enjoying the season...have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!
