Trans Siberian Orchestra Detroit Tickets
Trans-Siberian Orchestra is a genre-defining outfit which has been producing progressive rock music for over twenty years. The band was founded by Paul O’Neill in 1993 and inspired by European musicians during the Serb-Bosnian War. Since then, they have produced seven studio albums and are recognized for their extravaganza-like tours. TSO uses visual aids to add character to their performances. In 2017, the band is on its “Ghosts of Christmas Eve” holiday tour, on which the band is paying tribute to the late Paul O’Neil, who passed away a year ago. Trans-Siberian Orchestra Detroit tickets for this tribute tour’s stopover at Little Caesars Arena are available now.
TSO Stands Strong
The Trans-Siberian Orchestra was hit by tragedy twice in 2016. First, band creator and creative head Paul O’Neill suddenly passed away from an overdose of a prescription drug. He was just 61 years old and this was an unexpected shock to TSO. While the band was trying to grapple with this, their bassist David Z died in a car crash in 2017, while on tour in California.
The band has mourned these deaths and regrouped to go ahead with the holiday tour plans as scheduled. According to their music director, Al Pitrelli, the first thing O’Neill taught them was to never bring anything onstage which is not related to the music and performance. Therefore, the only personal element the band is bringing onstage is that the 2017 shows are going to be tributes to their deceased friends.
Christmas Tour 2017
Their 2017 Christmas tour is affectionately termed “Ghosts of Christmas Eve” since it is an elegy to O’Neil and David Z as well. The show is a compilation of TSO’s greatest hits and newer music. What Pitrelli has emphasized on in this tour are the visuals. Pyrotechnics are used abundantly to give the show artistic visuals and character which adds production value as well. TSO is headed all over the country with this arena show including Little Caesars Arena. Keep a check on Trans-Siberian Orchestra Detroit tickets for this holiday show.
