How is the show? It tours around the holidays. All I know is they play more of a rock style and have laser lights.

Input from those who have gone would be appreciated, particularly if it is worthwhile to go.

Yeah, I went to one several years ago. It was good enough that I'd go again, I just haven't got around to it yet. Serious light show.

If you like their music, it is probably a blast.

But I don't like their music (it is too over the top for me), so I have no interest.

I have seen them twice and would absolutely go again.

We went last year.

It's a long show.

It was fun, but not something I'd pay to see again, but would go for free.

Didn't know it followed a story for the first half of the show. The James Earl Jones double doing the narration was tough to understand, and it was warm at our seats (upper deck, rear; Toyota Center in Houston)

I like them. I have been to see them several times and am going to see them in November.

The family went several years ago. I wasn't impressed and would not pay to see their show again. YMMV

Wife and I saw them about five years ago. We left about half way through when, to us, it all sounded the same after a while.

Several Christmas seasons ago I went; as P250AU5 mentioned the first half was a story directly from an album such as The Christmas Attic. Very entertaining, but after awhile the volume became too much for me, too long. Got my money's worth though IMO.

I took the GF a few years back to see the show at the Allstate Arena near Chicago. I thought it was excellent. We had great seats and the pyrotechnics were incredible, we felt the heat several times thru the show. The musicians are very talented, but it has an 80's hair band feel given their costumes. Tickets were expensive, not sure what they are now. I think it'd be worth seeing once

Yes! In Philadelphia maybe 6-7 years ago. It was pretty epic.

Go if you can, it's a good time.

I will add, that I had wanted to go the show for years. Wife surprised me with tickets for my (early) birthday.

I do think it's worth paying to see, just don't think I'd do it again with my money.
