NOT WORTH THE MONEY

The musicians are great, but the absence of Chip Davis and daughter Elyse Davis was a let down (program indicated she was singing a song during the second half, which turned out to be a mix of videos of her performing elsewhere) - definitely not worth the $100+ per ticket we paid, The beginning NASA video felt like we were at the science center, not a Christmas concert, and one song seemed to roll into the next with no connection with the audience.

BORING

I had high expectations and this show fell short. The volume was low as if there were no speakers. The screen was difficult to see. The show needs a reboot. Everybody near us was saying the same thing. The one redeeming feature were the lights but even that was still so yesteryear. It you saw the show 20 years ago, it not much different now. They are milking this for all they can get without investing in updates.

MANHEIM STEAMROLLER - MPLS ORPHEUM

I used to be a big fan. Chip Davis set the tone of self promotion with a lack luster space shuttle and 1970's video. No energy from the performers - great musicians but poorly orchestrated. Should have stayed home

SO SAD

I surprised my mother and daughter with this show...Was My Surprise how let down I was... Hardly a Christmas Celebration ... What was with the old horrible video displays...Not one Xmas decoration on stage.. Very Few Xmas Songs played ...The NASA Intro was NOT a good idea for a Xmas Themed Concert ... I left devastated for wasting my moms time.... That was alot of money for me to dish out for this let down ... :-( The Videos played made it even worse

MANNHEIM STEAMROLLERS

So disappointing, we were guest of our friends at this event last evening. the Laser show is terrible, quality of the video graphics is awful....I have better picture on my home TV. Why we were paying to watch a video of the singer in Mexico and various cities.....flashing lights in your face.....about 40% Christmas music . the videos of NASA Clips ? why? the whole show was dated......felt like the 70's. bad. bad. bad did not enjoy, would not recommend

VERY DISAPPOINTING ON MANY LEVELS - BAND & VENUE

We saw Mannheim Steamroller at the Van Wezel 11/17/2018. Venue: Small Seats, uncomfortable, hard to get past people in the rows. I've never seen the Van Wezel look worse. Cables stretched/draped along the top of the entrance doors going back to the console. What an Ugly Site! Performance: No Energy from the band whatsoever. I've never seen such straight faces in a performance before. NO EXPRESSION whatsoever. They looked bored. Pathetic. Sound: Where was the Kick Drum? We don't know, it wasn't in the mix, oh wait, they found it on ONE song, and then it was gone again. There was a string section in their "Orchestra"... couldn't hear them, but there they sat... emotionless, expressionless, not being heard. The center performer, on a riser, the one person who spoke... once, and not so well, was playing some kind of electronic pad thing... it never made a sound. Wasn't in the mix. So Very Disappointing overall. Light show was the best part of it, and that was weak. Show is Outdated.

THE SPACE SHUTTLE THAT STOLE CHRISTMAS - SONIC BOOM!

I had planned to celebrate this Mannheim Steamroller event for months as a surprise to my wife for Christmas. The evening came. We are seating in the Fox Performing Arts Center - Riverside, CA excited to experience this wonderful group. Before the performers came on stage, we were greeted with an explosive sound from the audio system. We thought, "Okay, they are just have a minor sound check problem". The concert began with an odd NASA Space Shuttle backdrop video; no Christmas music? Hmm,.. okay, the first song from their portfolio began,... BOOM! That sound, again. It's happened every time they performed any of the up tempo songs, BOOM, ...BOOM... It was so loud and forceful you could feel the air blast from the speaker. The pain from the sound was like cannons. The poor musicians we all shock as us. Guests were streaming out the doors. They stopped the performance to fix the problem, but to no avail when they attempted to start. BOOM!! At that point, the concert was over. Our night
