weekly rounds

  • 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.

  1. I don’t think I’m going to get to see TSO this year, and I’m kinda bummed about it. I usually catch them at the Verizon Center, though one year I too went to 1st Mariner. They always put on an incredible show, and I rave about it year after year to friends. Glad you got to enjoy it! 🙂

  2. Thanks, and sorry you’re not going to catch them this time around!

    I was concerned that they would change up the first half of the show with their traditional holiday story for material from the new CD, but they didn’t. They ended up playing some selections from it during the second half… and I’m hopeful that they’ll base their spring tour around it. 🙂
