Trans-Siberian Orchestra Rocked Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids [Video]

I've been a fan of Trans-Siberian Orchestra since they put the project together, and I was a fan of Savatage before that.  

I got to see one of the first tours the band did, when it was much more stripped down, and it was really good even then.

Flash forward several years, and the show keeps getting bigger, better and more amazing!
