Trans-Siberian Orchestra played the Scottrade Center on Saturday night and music writer Ryan Wasoba has this review of the show. (Photo from a 2007 show, via Wikipedia.)
A teaser from Wasoba's review:
TSO's inherent shock value carried the first half of its set. Melodies from "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "O Holy Night" were seamlessly woven into an instru-metal medley that soundtracked the evening's most epic and epileptic light display. My view of the green laser mountains were only blocked by the dude six rows up throwing up a pair of unironic devil horns. Read the full review here.
