YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Trans Siberian Orchestra is returning to Youngstown for its winter concert series.
The group will perform at the Covelli Centre on Thursday, November 17. Show times are at 3:30 and 8 p.m.
The progressive rock group’s record-setting “rock theater” tours sell out venues across the U.S. This years, the group is bringing back its treasured tale, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” to 61 cities across North America.
The tour pre-sale opens to fan club members on September 7 through September 9, with the general public on sale set to begin on September 16. For details, visit www.trans-siberian.com.
Each concert ticket purchased online will include a digital audio copy of “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve.”
Debuted last year and based on TSO’s multi-platinum DVD and long-running PBS fundraiser, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” follows the journey of a runaway who breaks into an abandoned vaudeville theater on December 24. While seeking shelter from the cold, the teen is discovered by the theater’s caretaker who uses the ghosts and spirits from the building’s past to turn her life around.
The rock opera features fan-favorites such as “Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24,” “O’ Come All Ye Faithful,” “Good King Joy,” “Christmas Canon,” “Music Box Blues,” “Promises To Keep,” and “This Christmas Day.” 2016’s tour will see an all new second set containing some of TSO’s greatest hits.
As in previous years, $1 to $2 of every ticket sold benefits select local charities.
