Trans-Siberian Orchestra coming to Houston
December 16, 2013 by Max
Houston holiday lovers will have the chance to extend their Christmas a little longer this year. Trans-Siberian Orchestra, a progressive rock band, will bring their ‘Lost Christmas Eve’ tour to the Toyota Center a couple of days after Christmas itself.
Trans-Siberian Orchestra has been touring since 1999, and is best known for its rock operas. Three of its five major releases have been part of the world-famous Christmas trilogy. ‘The Lost Christmas Eve’ is the last of the three installments. Originally released in 2004, it was re-released in 2013 with additional narration. Thr current tour coincides with the re-release, and their website hails the tour as the “encore and final performance” of the rock opera.
In addition to the unique combination of grand orchestral movements and progressive rock accents, the orchestra is also known for the visual quality of its performances. Live shows incorporate a variety of light designs, lasers, and fog machines. This close connection between music and light shows also goes beyond orchestral performances; Tran-Siberian Orchestra’s music is often incorporated into holiday light displays, firework displays, and even sporting events.
A concert from a group like this can be a fun event to promote, and a local printing company can help spread the word about the upcoming event by producing interesting and informative promotional materials. A flyer and poster campaign is one way to spread the word, and either can be posted in popular areas, like store windows and community message boards.
The show will take place on Friday, December 27.
