    I've seen them live 3 times. They are incredible musicians who put on one of the best shows you will ever see. Get ready for an awesome concert!

    I'm officially jealous. I've wanted to see them for years and just can't seem to make it happen. My wife isn't into concerts and I haven't developed the "concert buddy" network where I live now.

    Have a great time. My bro saw the show a couple years ago and said it was amazing.

    Have to agree with all of you that've seen 'em. One of the most professional shows I've ever seen/heard/felt....ha! They are all over the stage, well rehearsed, well voiced and man the light show. OK, calm down. They were fantastic. MERRY CHRISTMAS one and all.

    You should work on getting your wife to go. I took my family this year (including my 8 and 7 year olds) to the Nov. 22 show in Raleigh. My wife isn't a huge concert person either, but it is more than just a concert. It is really a show. The best one I have ever been to. The biggest concert/show I had been to before this was Metallica/Guns n Roses at Giants Stadium. This was 1000xs better, and I could take the family without any concerns. It really was beyond belief. It is two weeks later and my wife is still saying how much she loved it and wishes we could go to another right now.

    Doesn't former Alice Cooper guitarist Joe Petrelli (sic) play in one of the touring companies too?
