Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO), one of the top selling concert acts in the world creates one of the most captivating concert experiences on the road today. Insistent on giving their fans the most “value for their dollar,” TSO puts on an over-the-top audio/visual spectacular complete with lasers, pyrotechnics and state of the art lighting with a ticket price that starts as low as $25 allowing generations of fans to be enthralled year after year. Trans-Siberian Orchestra returns to the Frank Erwin Center on Friday, December 3 for one performance only!

TSO founder, producer and writer Paul O’Neill explains, “When someone goes to a TSO concert, we don’t want them to walk away saying ‘that was a great show’ or ‘that was worth it’ or even ‘that was the best show I’ve seen in a long time.’ We want them to say, ‘Man, that the best show ever; we just ripped that band off.'”

With sales in excess of seven million – including nearly two million CDs and DVDs sold in the past two years -Trans-Siberian Orchestra is among the most popular groups of the modern era. The Orchestra debuted in 1996 with the timeless “CHRISTMAS EVE AND OTHER STORIES.” Highlighted by the remarkable hit single, “Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24,” the album has since achieved 2x platinum certification from the RIAA, with sales now rapidly approaching three million. Two further albums completed O’Neill’s planned Christmas Trilogy; 1998’s “THE CHRISTMAS ATTIC” and 2004’s “THE LOST CHRISTMAS EVE,” both of which are currently approaching 2x platinum certification. All three of the Orchestra’s Christmas-themed albums have proven enduring blockbusters, returning annually to the top 10 on Billboard’s “Top Catalog Albums” and “Top Holiday Albums” charts.

TSO’s 2009 Winter Tour played to over 1.2 million fans in 80+ cities, and generating revenues of nearly $45 million, which according to Billboard magazine’s midyear touring chart, put them as the No. 2 most attended tour. Since its first Winter Tour in 1999, TSO has been one of the concert business’s most successful acts, consistently rating in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and audience attendance.

In the spring of 2010, TSO debuted the much-anticipated live rock opera “BEETHOVEN’S LAST NIGHT,” TSO’s gold-certified rock opera fantasy about “what could have happened” on Beethoven’s final night of life. The successful tour provided the template for their innovative brand of “Rock Theater” and the much-anticipated World Tour in 2011.

The band’s latest release “NIGHT CASTLE,” which featuring the singles, “Believe” and a cover of the classic “Nutrocker,” burst onto Billboard’s “Top 200” chart and was certified gold in less than eight weeks.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
