After spending 2020 providing only livestream performances, the traditional holiday favorite Trans-Siberian Orchestra has confirmed that they will return to LIVE on-person touring for the 2021 Christmas season! The TSO will be composed (see what we did there? ) of two fully-fleshed out bands that will reach a total of 59 cities bringing melodic, rock-infused compositions such as “Wizards in Winter” and “Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24” to arenas nationwide through Dec. 30 in Cleveland and St. Louis.
“Not that anyone took this for granted, but (these shows) are something we planned our holidays around and that was taken away from us last year,” Al Pitrelli, lead guitarist and music director for TSO’s West shows, tells USA TODAY. “To be able to go out and do this again, we can’t wait. Every lyric will be sung and every note will be played with that much more importance.”
