Comments: For reasons that escape me at the moment, Rhonda wasn’t able to join me this year. I had already bought tickets as a surprise but the surprise was on me. No matter, it didn’t take me long to realize who it was I was going to invite in her stead: my little sister Marj. Little sister from another mother… and another father for that matter. She had been a long time fan of the TSO and immediately accepted my invitation. We decided to make an evening of it, starting off with her meeting my at my place in Scarborough before driving out to Hamilton. We found a Keg DSC01028_resizeSteakhouse up on the “mountain” and enjoyed a wonderful steak dinner and a bottle of wine before making our way to the gig.

The seats we had we’re damned fine: second row floors, just off centre. I didn’t tell her where they were so as we kept getting closer to the stage her eyes got bigger and bigger. The band were premiering their Lost Christmas Eve album on this tour, finally DSC00962_resizegrowing tired, I assume, of trotting out Christmas Eve and Other Stories year after year after year. Let just tell you right here and now that they did not disappoint. Considering the fact that the second half of past years shows had been heavily made up of tracks from this album it was a bit of a no brainer. I mean, Wizards in Winter, Siberian Sleigh Ride, Wish Liszt (Toy Shop Madness) and Christmas Canon Rock had never left their set in all the years we had seen them.

After the show, we hung around and lined up to meet the band and get their autographs. A couple of the members commented on having seen Marj in the crowd, singing along to each and every song. I think it made her night. I know it made mine.
