Trans-Siberian Orchestra -- Dayton, OH -- December 4th, 2005

In short, wow.

This was an incredible show, and certainly the most high-budget production I've ever had the privilege of seeing. The metal flowed, and the sixty and over crowd (which coincidentally made up a good 75% of the audience) were absolutely disgusted at Alex Skolnick (Testament) and Chris Caffery (Savatage) with their insane nearly nonstop shredding.

I threw the devil fingers high and was proud that they stayed metal even in the context of a Christmas show

The setlist was as follows:

Wizards in Winter
An Angel Came Down
O Come All Ye Faithful/O Holy Night
The Prince of Peace
First Snow
The Silent Nutcracker
A Mad Russian's Christmas
Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24
Good King Joy
Old City Bar
Promises to Keep
This Christmas Day
An Angel Returned
Christmas Nights in Blue
Christmas Jam
Christmas Canon Rock
Night Castle (from upcoming album, sneak preview song!)
Queen of the Winter Night
Requiem (The 5th)
Wish Liszt (Toy Shop Madness)
Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24 (Reprise)

In-fucking-credible. Ask for details if you want, this review was quite brief.
