Trans-Siberian Orchestra -- Dayton, OH -- November 12th, 2006

I'll try to keep this one brief, it wasn't a terribly eventful evening. We got to the venue about an hour before the show began, and I bought no merch because I didn't have enough money to get anything worthwhile. We sat down and waited for the show to commence and saw several other metal folks. It went off without a hitch, and everything was very well done from a visual standpoint, and all the instrumental parts were done well as well. However, they need to get Zak Stevens or Jon Oliva or just the guys from the studio records to do their vocals, because the guys they used tried to put far too much fluorish into what are essentially minimalist vocal performances (see Old City Bar---butchered by flair). Overall I'd give this show no less than a 6.5/10. Maybe because it was so far before Christmas it had so little effect on me.

Yeah, damn long set, eh? Fun fact: I patted Chris Caffery on the back, threw him the horns, and screamed great show when he stopped right next to me during the reprise of Sarajevo 12/24. That was pretty fucking awesome.
