Awesome! I would love catching TSO live. Probably won't happen on this side of the pond though, at least not with the full production which is at least a point why see them.
I saw the East Coast tour the Christmas before last. The two main guitarists were Chris Caffery and Joel Hoekstra. They were amazing. The did do some of that blues and swing when I saw them because there was a Christmas in New York theme in a section of the the show...and that was the part that Russell Allen sang. I thought it worked. These people are top caliber musicians and can pretty much play anything.....I thought they pulled it off. It was a hell of a show. i was glad I finally got to see it.
