The Design of TSO (Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Creative Team Talks 20 Years of Evolving Design)
An in-depth look at the evolution of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's production design after more than 20 years of touring. TSO now regularly plays to more than a million people a year in only two-and-a-half months and is among the top-ticket selling tours for Live Nation. Join longtime production and lighting designer Bryan Hartley and Director of Touring and Production Elliot Saltzman, as well as key production suppliers, to find out how they collaborate to create the icon TSO look and keep growing and changing the visuals of the show. TSO has grown from one bus and truck to two full simultaneous tours, with 20 trucks of production gear on each coast. The session will also take an in-depth look at the historic 2015 Wacken Open Air festival in Germany, where TSO became the first band to play on two Wachen stages, simultaneously, in front of 80,000 fans. Lighting, video, pyrotechnics, lasers, stage automation, special effects and more are used to bring every TSO show to life.
