Do you like shredding guitars and epic orchestral movements with angelic choirs singing while flames ignite a stage? Do you love Christmas? Do you think it would be cool to see all of this packed into an explosive night of metal and holiday cheer? Then this show is most definitely for you. With their headbanging rendition of “Carol of The Bells” and other aggressive covers of holiday songs, Trans Siberian Orchestra has been spreading their love for epic Christmas movements since the late 90’s and are coming to town to remind us that tinsel isn’t the only thing metal about Christmas.
On Saturday, December 23 at 3:30pm then at 8pm, the AT&T Center will host two shows with $1 of each ticket going to San Antonio charities. TSO’s tour will be a celebration of the art and accomplishments of the lauded group’s late creator/composer/lyricist, Paul O’Neill, and his inimitable creation, which he dubbed “Rock Theater.” Prior to his untimely passing, O’Neill worked tirelessly with his close-knit team preparing an exciting new take on “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve” for the 2017 tour. Beginning November 16, fans will experience this exciting stage spectacle, including new awe-inspiring effects, and staging, certain to make the story even more engaging for fans.
Tickets for both shows go on sale Saturday, Sept. 16 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com, ATTCenter.com, and 800-745-3000.
