Trans-Siberian Orchestra -- Birmingham, AL -- December 7th, 2013
 
They played two shows in one day with the first one at 3 PM (the one I went to) and the second at 7 PM. I personally don't see how they play for two and a half hours, rest for an hour or so, and play for another two and a half hours. Another thing is I don't see how the venue got everybody out for the first show, and everybody in for the second show within an hour because there were a lot of people there.

The band started about 10 minutes after 3 because they made an announcement about donating $1 off of every ticket sold to a local hospital. The total was $11,900 something which is really cool of the band for doing that.

Their stage was huge, the pyro was big, they played their album The Lost Christmas Eve in its entirety, and Christmas music turned into metal so what more could a person want during this time of the year? If you're border line about seeing them like I was, then go see them! They really blew me away and I'll probably be back every year as long as they keep changing their set. Definitely got my money's worth.

For some reason Alabama got the West Coast version, but it looks like they're playing the same set as the East Coast. Here's the set:

Time And Distance

Faith Noel
The Lost Christmas Eve
Wizards in Winter
Christmas Dreams
Christmas Nights in Blue
Christmas Jam
Siberian Sleigh Ride
What Is Christmas?

Back to a Reason, Part II
What Child Is This?
Christmas Canon Rock
Different Wings

The Mountain
A Mad Russian's Christmas
Someday
Sparks
Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night)
Carmina Burana
Beethoven
Requiem (The Fifth)
This Christmas Day
Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24) [Savatage Cover]

Saw the east coast show on Friday. We get the version with Chris Caffery. Awesome as always, but I miss Alex Skolnik.

Good to see Carmina Burana back in the set for the first time since 2009.

Looking forward to the Garden show on the 22nd.

It's always a good show! Next Wednesday in Providence for me...

BTW - you won't get the "full"show at the Garden! I went to both Providence and Boston last year, and in Boston there was very little in the way of pyro. Even the band seemed a little lost where there was supposed to be some fire and explosions onstage. I mentioned it to Chris Caffery at the meet and greet after the show and he just made a face and said "they won't let us here".

Well aware. This will be my 9th time seeing them since 2009. This is the only year I wasn't able to make the Manchester show because I didn't have my car on the road at the time.

They said at the beginning of the tour that this is the last year of Lost Christmas Eve.

It's up in the air what next year will bring. Hopefully a new album at least. The EP was nice, but it'll be 5 years since Night Castle on the next tour.
