This week when I was talking to a neighbor about the holidays, he blurted out, Christmas will be in two weeks. We both agreed that the business of the holidays had creeped into our heads. We also said that was not good, because the holidays (Christmas) are suppose to be a time to just have fun. With that being said, this is what's happening in and around Houston this weekend. Happy holidays everybody.JWM

This annual holiday traditional tour moves TSO into Houston's Toyota Center with two performances. The orchestra has been doing this for 20-years now.
TSO is excited to celebrate 20 years on the road this winter with an all-new production of ‘The Ghosts of Christmas Eve’ featuring the Best of TSO and more!!
It all started with an idea:
When the late Paul O'Neill first conceived Trans-Siberian Orchestra, his goal was as straightforward as it was incredibly ambitious. "The whole idea," he explains, "was to create a progressive rock band that would push the boundaries (of the genre) further than any group before... Way, way further."
