The holidays are just around the corner. The familiar anticipation of winter’s first snowfall and the warm sounds of Christmas melodies start to permeate the air. But why wait til December? Trans-Siberian Orchestra is coming to Target Center this November, with music and staging unlike anything you’ve ever seen or heard. This is not your grandmother’s Christmas music. Unless she’s into Christmas music featuring guitar stints from former thrash-metal guitarists! Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) is truly a rock spectacle with an underlying quality of Christmas-themed songs and narration. Complete with lasers, pyrotechnics, a full rock band, an orchestral string section, vocalists, narrators and even a gorgeous snowfall, TSO delivers a holiday experience that is sure to knock your socks off!

Trans-Siberian Orchestra will appear at Target Center on Saturday, November 14th, 2009. Show times are at 3:00pm and 8:00pm so plan a day or night out in downtown Minneapolis with your friends and family to experience this unforgettable show.

    I have to say, this is one of the best concerts I've ever attended. My grandparents, parents, sister and brother all came with me as a sort of early holiday family activity. Everyone enjoyed it! The musicians are so talented and the special effects will leave you in awe. I definitely recommend this as a family activity. WELL WORTH THE $$!

    My girlfriend got tickets to this and I admit at first I wasn't too excited but we had a good time. These guys sure know how to rock.

    We LOVE TSO! A bunch of girlfriends and I go together and make a night out of it. We get dressed up, go to dinner and the evening show. I got my tickets the day they went on sale this year!
