I know that most of the TSO family is happy for this release. We have been teased by various tid-bits and alot of "well it'll be out soon" One summer got pushed to the next summer. ABOUT TIME. Now we needs a Night Castle/Beethoven tour to happen in the spring/summer time and the Christmas show in the fall/winter.. :)
That would be awesome, but I doubt it'd happen. Most of the band members have side projects on their own, and spend their "off-time" working on cd's and "solo" tours, like O2L (Al Pitrelli, his wife Jane, and Tommy Farese), then Chris Caffery has his new lp, Anna Phoebe & Angus Clark work on side projects together and Angus also has another band of his own on top of that, Mark Woods does his teaching tours and puts out cds along with Jeff Plate.... to name a few. Didn't get to see O2L this year, probably because Al was recovering from his knee surgery.
They have already said they want to do a Summer tour. It maybe even in 2010 but it will be in Europe. I would love to see a Summer tour but I doubt it would be as big as the winter tour. They are best known for the Christmas music.
