Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) kicked off their Christmas Eve and Other Stories Presented by Hallmark Channel tour at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin on November 13. I was able to get access to view their first amazing performance of their 2019 Winter Tour.
It is my annual tradition, every holiday I see Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Christmas show twice. Why the same show twice? Well, they have two touring groups, the east and the west and I enjoy seeing both of them. This Green Bay show marked my 23rd time seeing TSO.
We’re lucky to live in Lake County because we have two venues nearby to see Trans-Siberian Orchestra this holiday. They’ll be performing two shows at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee on Friday, December 27 at 3:30 pm and 8 pm as well as two shows at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont on Monday, December 30 at 2:30 pm and 8 pm. Both locations will feature the west group.
At the beginning of each show, two to three TSO members come out on stage and present a check with a local celebrity. The band always gives back. For every ticket sold at every show, they donate $1 to a local charity.
Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s music ignites a fire in my soul. Their tunes are pure perfection. When you can see their performances, in-the-flesh, complete with lighting, lasers, snow, pyro, smoke, talented musicians, amazing singers – you’ll become hooked, like I am.
