Rock Out With Trans Siberian Orchestra

Since 1996 fans the world over have marveled at the music by trans siberian orchestra. What most people don’t know is that two of the founding members are also part of the heavy metal group, Savatage. But that makes since when listening to the blistering guitar solos in TSO’s bigger hit, Christmas Eve Sarajevo 12/24, from their triple platinum selling album Christmas Eve And Other Stories. Also unknown to most is the fact that that song was originally recorded by Savatage in 1995 and is all about the war in Bosnia.
Trans Siberian Orchestra has never played in a club, having the clout, chops, and stage show to tour only arenas. In fact, since 2000 they are one of the top ten grossing touring bands in the world. Their most popular shows, of course, are around the Christmas holiday, where they play to sold out arenas every night. That in and of itself is a bit of an oddity for a progressive rock band, but it makes all the sense in the world when you hear their chill inducing music.
If you have never listened to Trans Siberian Orchestra do yourself a favor and check out their catalog wherever music is sold.
