Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Okay, this just kicks so much butt.

I've just found out that the Trans-Siberian Orchestra is playing in Omaha!

TSO is one of my absolute favorites, being the brainchild of Paul O'Neill, and including musicians from the band Savatage, as well as orchestral instrumentalists and vocalists from Broadway and elsewhere.

These guys just rock. I'm gonna be buying tickets as soon as they go on sale.

Yep.

Yep. Paul O'Niell has been Savatage's producer and an aide for songwriting for going on 10 years now. When he decided he wanted to do a new music project combining rock, opera, classical, broadway, and more, he went to Savatage to provide the rock part. Additionally, on TSO's latest album, Savatage members even offer up a few vocal parts. ;-)

There's still something amusing though, thinking about Savatage members putting on Tux's and touring the country with an orchestra, singing Christmas songs (TSO's first two albums were Christmas songs). ;-)
