Trans-Siberian Orchestra is returning to San Antonio, y’all.

The annual tour, stopping in 65 North American cities, kicked off November 14 in Green Bay and wraps up on December 30 with shows in Cleveland and Milwaukee. The tour stays true to stopping in S.A. as close to Christmas as possible, with a scheduled December 23 show at the AT&T Center.

The current tour marks the second without founder Paul O’Neil, who passed away last year.

“Last year, with Paul’s family steering the ship, we realized that his dream will live beyond him, and that makes us all very proud, happy and thankful,” said Al Pitrelli, the band’s music director and lead guitarist.

This time around, Trans-Siberian is also celebrating 20 years of the famous winter tour that started it all, based on their 1999 Ghosts of Christmas Eve TV movie. And in yet another throwback, TSO released a 20th-anniversary edition of the 1998 album The Christmas Attic, which became available September 28.

$45.75-$89, Sun Dec. 23, 3pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Pkwy,
