Founded in 1993 by Paul O’Neill, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra exploded onto the music scene with Christmas Eve and Other Stories, the first installment of a holiday rock opera trilogy. Since then, the band—which frequently performs with more than 30 people on stage at one time—has been thrilling international audiences with their heavy metal, electric renditions of Christmas and classical hits. In the decades that TSO has been performing, they’ve released a total of 9 studio albums, sold more than 10 million records, and have become one of the top 10 ticket-selling bands of the 21st century. Their elaborate stage shows are not to be missed, so don’t wait long to get your hands on some tickets.
The Trans-Siberian Orchestra has been touring around the world since 1999, making history as the first major rock band to go straight to arenas, having never played a club or ever been an opening act. Their live shows are more like an immersive experience than a typical concert, as they dazzle fans with a mix of high-energy music, colorful light shows, smoldering lasers, and “enough pyrotechnics to be seen from the International Space Station.” Described as “Pink Floyd meets Yes and The Who at Radio City Music Hall,” the rock phenomenon sells out tickets in the blink of an eye. Don’t miss your chance to see the band live during their annual winter extravaganza.
