The Trans-Siberian Orchestra is bringing its long-running Christmas "multi-sensory extravaganza" back to Cincinnati this holiday season.
The group's all-new musical/theatrical "Christmas Eve and Other Stories" tour comes to town on Nov. 29 for two shows.
Founded by musician/composer Paul O’Neill (who died a few years ago), Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Prog/New Age holiday spectacle has played in over 80 cities, performed for more than 100 million people. Ticket sales have surpassed $280 million, with $11 million donated to charity.
The new tour is based on the album of the same name and follows the life story of O’Neill.
According to a press blurb, “The story is set on Christmas Eve when a young angel is sent to Earth to bring back what is best representative of humanity. Following favorite TSO themes of ‘strangers helping strangers’ and ‘the kindness of others,’ ‘Christmas Eve and Other Stories’ takes listeners all over the world to help reunite a young girl with her distraught father.”
4 and 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29. Tickets start at $49.50. Heritage Bank Center (formerly U.S. Bank Arena), 100 Broadway St., Downtown, heritagebankcenter.com.
