We managed to hit a couple of concerts this week, starting with the Nitzer Ebb Industrial Complex Tour, and topped off with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra‘s show at the 1st Mariner Arena. The Nitzer Ebb gig was fun – Anders Manga brought the awesome, as did Ego Likeness, and Nitzer Ebb provided an interesting and energetic end to the evening. The TSO put on an excellent show, as always. As their concert (and the story told in therein) has become a holiday tradition for us, I was interested to see if they would change their musical routine based on their new CD – they didn’t. They also announced that they will have a spring tour for the first time ever this coming year, which answers the question of how they’ll work their new songs into live performances.
