12:02 minutes Iris talks to Al Pitrelli of Trans-Siberian Orchestra

Every year when we hear that TSO has set the date for their Portland shows, I get a rush. The band not only are wonderful, and the production BIGGER THAN LIFE ITSELF, but their musical director, Al Pitrelli, just "gets it." He's a cool guy, one hell of a guitar player, and one of my favorite rock stars of all time to talk to. Hope you enjoy the conversation about this year's show, and more.

Portland gets two TSO shows on the Sunday after Thanksgiving! That's like a big old Christmas present delivered by Santa himself! This year, we have a new show from Al Pitrelli and the TSO western touring band and we couldn't be happier. Here's the conversation with Iris and Al.

12:48 minutes Iris Talks to Al Pitrelli of Trans-Siberian Orchestra about the 2011 tour.

Amy the KGONsider and I are maybe just a little too excited about this, because it's like waiting for Christmas when you're 8 years old. In fact that's exactly what it's like...because the TSO show is the one thing that signals the start of the holiday season for me. This year, they are coming the Sunday after Thanksgiving, November 27th, for two shows, 3pm and 7:30pm. If you've never seen the show, PLEASE for the love of all that's good in the world, do yourself a favor and go. Take the family. Take your friends.

11:15 minutes Iris Harrison talks to Al Pitrelli about the upcoming Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert in Portland

Okay, I'll confess that Amy the KGON'sider and myself are great big geeks for this band. We love the production elements, the visuals, the musicians, the holiday feeling that you get when you are sitting in the Rose Garden Arena with wild pyrotechnics, lasers that rival any show on the planet, and well, there's Al Pitrelli. We LOVE this man to pieces. If TSO was a circus, we'd run away and join it!
