Frankly, I wish I'd just watched a recorded Mannheim Steamroller special on TV. No live vocalist at the show. They showed videos of a vocalist singing at other venues or in rehearsal. Oh, and the videos that played throughout the concert had incredibly poor production values, had little or no connection to the music being played and jumped from scene to scene for the same song with no discernible connection. For example, we have a scene of what is supposed to be a medieval knight galloping through the countryside, scene shifts to some ocean waves, scene shifts to some scrubbly fields, scene shifts to a moated castle, scene shifts to a shot between the horse's ears, scene shifts back to the rider going through the woods....and what did any of this have to do with the Christmas song that was playing? The angels in one video looked like creepy ghosts and more fitting for Halloween. The music itself was okay, which is why this concert gets 2 stars, but the entire performance felt phoned in and all the flashing light effects won't make up for what was clearly a second-rate effort. If Mannheim Steamroller returns to Detroit in 2024 I won't be buying tickets. Maybe after all these years the Steamroller has run out of steam.

We were disappointed and left wanting after seeing
Mannheim Steamroller at the Grand in Wilmington,
Delaware. For those who are expecting a TSO type
performance, is was not a close comparison. The
quality of the the music was good in a low key type
fashion, but the visuals in terms of musician
performance and the video backdrops were downright
poor. Was expecting much more.

We saw/heard this show in Grand Rapids, MI, leaving at intermission. We were most disappointed.
The musicians appeared bored and did not engage with the audience on any level, We found the
music artificial, plastic, and "pretend." We have heard Mannheim Steamroller before and have
several recordings, but this was just painful to observe and hear. The only bit of relief was the
University of Michigan Men's Chorus (we think) which was wonderful, but too brief.

WHAT WAS THAT
Last night was my first time to see the band. Was disappointed. What was with the videos that
reminded of MTV in when they first came out and scratched my head then said what’s that
gotta do with the song. Actually dozed off for a while during the first set. In the beginning of
the show the leader announced that Chip’s daughter was going to sing in the second half. Yea
she song in a prerecorded video..wtf. I’m glad I didn’t have to pay for the tickets.

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.
Don C from Barrington, Illinois
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

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
