The holiday season is not complete without a holiday concert. And when it comes to the most-loved seasonal songs, Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s holiday performance can’t be beat. TSO1 Trans-Siberian Orchestra, also known as “TSO” by many fans, will perform live at 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 5 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum as part of “The Christmas Attic” tour. TSO is an American progressive rock band founded in 1996. The band is best known by their signature hit “Carol of the Bells” as well as the light show, lasers, video screens and other visuals that accompany each performance. The event venue is located at 4000 Parnell Ave., on the city’s north side and conveniently near lodging, dining and shopping options. Tickets are on sale now and start at $32 each. They can be purchased in person at the box office, online at or by phone by calling 800.745.3000. Be sure to bring cash for parking which ranges from $5 to $8 depending on proximity to the venue. Insider Tip: I attended a TSO concert in the Fort a few years ago. Truly there is no bad seat in the house at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. The light displays orchestrated for this show are half the entertainment. You will be amazed!
