Trans-Siberian Orchestra returning to Cleveland for two shows on Dec. 27

Christmas is over when the Trans-Siberian Orchestra SAYS it’s over.

The speaker-pumping, laser-shooting rock-classical fusion outfit will make its annual holiday-season appearance in Cleveland Dec. 27 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Fans get two shots at the show, at 3 and 8 p.m.

TSO is returning “with all-new staging and effects is the unforgettable show that started it all, “Christmas Eve and Other Stories.” TSO’s show that started small, performed to 12,000 people in five cities in 1999, which then exploded onto the national scene, eventually playing to 9 million fans over the course of an incredible 12 years,” states a news release from event promoter Live Nation.

More from the release:

A product of the vision and imagination of TSO’s late founder/composer/lyricist Paul O’Neill, “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” began the unique format O’Neill called “Rock Theater” and forged a deep connection with their fans that it turned into the wildly-successful tour, cementing the group’s status as a must-see, multi-generational, holiday tradition and kick-started the trend of Yuletide season tours.
