Just saw the San Diego show on Saturday and I can't tell you how fun
this show was. There were so many visual effects it is hard to
remember them all but the stage and lighting was nothing short of
spectacular. Lasers, Fire, Indoor Fireworks, Risers from/to the
ceiling and great stage and most important of all fantastic musicians and singers
playing some beefed up Christmas carols, famous classical themes and
some of their own blues based rock. Very ambitious, pretentious and
just a whole lotta of fun. We took Stacy's two daughters 11 and 8
and they had a blast. This was their first concert and we may have
spoiled them for future more toned down shows. They played 3 hours as
well. Here is the set list as best i can determine it:
 
A Night Enchanted/March Of The Kings
Prolougue
An Angel Came Down
O'Come All Ye Faithful/O Holy Night
Prince Of  Peace
First Snow
A   Russians Christmas
Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24)
Good King Joy
Ornament
Old City Bar
Promises To Keep
This Christmas Day
An Angel Returned
Epilogue
Band Introductions
Wizards In Winter
Queen of the Winter Night
Prelude To Madness
Believe
A Last Illusion
Siberian Sleigh Ride
An Angel's Share
Drum Solo
Tracers
Mozart/Figaro
Christmas Canon Rock
Carmina Burana (O Fortuna)
Beethoven
Piano Duel
Requiem (The Fifth)
Wish Liszt
Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24) (Yes it was played twice this one was extended a bit too)
 
If you are looking for a fun show you can bring the whole family too this is it.  While not really a prog show this is much more like Rock Theater the music is still adventuruous and tight.  They still have over a months worth of shows left for this year. There are two bands divided East and West. I saw the west band.
