Paul O'Neill talks to Iris about TSO's 2013 Tour and more
On November 9th, I saw the final run through of Trans-Siberian Orchestra's 2013 production, in Iowa, where they use an arena for weeks to get the technical and musical elements of the show honed to profection. I have to say yet again, they just blew me away. I actually got to meet Paul O'Neill while I was there. He's a master magician of the TSO magic that happens each and every year. He is also one of the most down to earth, humble, kind and amazing people that I've ever met, and I've met a lot of people during 37 years in this crazy business.
Paul loves a challenge, and he's taking one on for New Year's Eve. TSO will be flying immediately after their usual Christmas season tour, to Germany to play for a crowd of one million people. If anyone can pull this off, it's Paul O'Neill. The schedule is tight, but what a great story.
I hope you enjoy the chat between Paul, the wizard...and me, the fan.
