Trans-Siberian Orchestra to Perform at the Q in December


  • Jason McEachern
Christmas is still months away, but the holiday concert announcements keep rolling in. Now, Trans-Siberian Orchestra has just announced details for its winter tour that will celebrate 20 years of live performances.

The Ghosts of Christmas Eve tour will launch on Nov. 14 and then come to the Q on Dec. 30 for shows that take place at 3 and 8 p.m.

Based on TSO’s multi-platinum DVD and long running PBS show, The Ghosts of Christmas Eve, the rock opera will feature tracks such as "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24," "O’ Come All Ye Faithful," "Good King Joy," "Christmas Canon," "Music Box Blues," "Promises To Keep" and "This Christmas Day." A second set will feature greatest hits and "fan-pleasers."

As in all previous years, a portion of every ticket sold benefits select local charities. To date, more than $15 million has been distributed from TSO to charities across North America.

Tickets for both shows at the Q go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 14. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the St. Augustine Hunger Center.
