Trans-Siberian Orchestra in Manchester

Just saw the concert an hour ago....WOW What a show!!!!!!!!!

Lots of lights, Fire, Lasers and nice looking ladies singing.

Only thing I thought they needed to improve on is:

1) They need to up the Bass frequency in their PA system.
All I heard was a mean midrange and a Killer highend range from the Les Pauls.

2) The screaming Les Pauls need to use less reverb/delay because it
drowns out everybody else and the signal tends to give you an earache
once in a while.

3) The screaming Les Pauls are killing their PA system at certain Crescendo's. It tends to be soooo loud that all you hear is a WALL of Crunchy-Static-Mayhem and the song loses it's bearing for a moment. Sounds like a bomb going off.

4) The lead Violinist needs to be turned up quite a bit. I only heard him a couple of times through the SCREAMING Les

I'm certain that if everybody quit TSO except for the 2 guitarists, bass, drums and one keyboard player that the show could easily go on.

It's like you're going to the SCREAMING Les Paul SHOW!!!!!

WHAT DID YOU SAY? ... yeah, i know that "soun' clown", he´s an apprentice heathen.
Did let us think, - power-four (forgot) -, was another supporting group for two songs.

What the watts said Zappa?

Of course you realize you won't be able to hear the organ
once we turn the guitars on.

A mind is like a parachute. It doesnt work if it not open.

& (Amp´s end)

It's better to have something to remember than nothing to regret...

^^^Ummmm...yea dude...sure.

Overall...the show was great...I will see them again next year.
I'll bring ear plugs too.

BTW...there is nothing "Orchestra" about them when they perform live.

Yes, the violin should always be turned up. :evil: :evil: :evil:

Btw.. Mark is an amazing violinist who left Juliard because they didn't let him play rock music there!!! He made my Viper (electric violin) for me, and I totally LOVE it!!!

Glad you liked the show!

Yea...that violinist was all over the stage. Great performer, very active guy.
You can see he was having a great time.
I liked the glow-in-the-dark violin he played during one of the songs.
I got a kick out of the flying V violin. Very original.

Like I said above, you could bearily hear him. He was playing like a mad man and I wish I could hear him more often but the Les Pauls were all I could hear.

That's cool you got a custom Violin...maybe you could show a pic of it?

EDIT: ....I clicked on your link in your sig...very cool violin!! And your music sounds great!!
