Fabulous Concert

No matter your faith, or lack of a prescribed faith or religion, the message of this song should give everyone pause for thought.

The back drop of the song is this:

There's a bum that starts telling a story in an old city bar in an old part of town where the less fortunate hang out getting cheap whiskey. There is an angel sent from God that is supposed to scour the earth to find evidence of love or compassion or goodness. As the angel flies through the air he finds battlefields full of soldiers fighting for a cause they don't believe in and yet they sing in cheer for Christmas Eve (that is based on a true story).

This particular song is about a lady who can't get home and a child who finds her.

"If you want to know how to help, you only need ask."

That's the message.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra was fabulous tonight. With their laser light show, bursting flames, lowering of the apparatus to make another stage.

And, by the way, what the singer does holding the tone for almost 45 seconds is beyond amazing.

Try it yourself. You'll see how hard it is to do without taking a breath.
