Christmas ain’t over til the Trans-Siberian Orchestra says it’s over, motherfuckers. Who cares if Christmas was three days ago?

Founded in 1996 by composer Paul O’Neill, a live performance by TSO’s massive orchestra ensemble has become a holiday tradition that fuses lasers, ’80s hair-band showmanship, floating stages, and enough pyrotechnics to lay serious waste to some chestnuts. Did we mention Christmas music? That’s right. TSO’s calling card, for some damn reason, is high-octane original holiday tunes for anyone looking to go jingle-balls-to-the-wall. This year’s performance will celebrate 25 years of Christmas Eve and Other Stories, TSO’s debut record, which, since its release, has become one of the best-selling Christmas records of all time.



Performances begin at 3 & 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 28, at Little Caesars Arena; 2645 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-7000; 313presents.com. Tickets are $44.50+.
