All aboard the Trans-Siberian Orchestra

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra presents the live debut of "The Lost Christmas Eve," a rock holiday tradition for a new generation, Friday at 8 at the Spokane Arena.

"The Lost Christmas Eve" has been called "a story of loss and redemption" and features a diverse soundtrack fusing elements of rock, classical, folk, Broadway, and R&B, which takes you on a journey into the "Capra-esque" world of TSO creator-producer, Paul O'Neill. Encompassing a rundown hotel, an old toy store, a blues bar, a Gothic cathedral, and their respective inhabitants all intertwined during a single enchanted Christmas Eve in New York City, this year's show is sure to start any TSO fan's holiday season off right. "The Lost Christmas Eve" will be performed in its entirety and will feature the hit single, "Wizards in Winter", as well as longtime crowd favorites, "Christmas Nights in Blue" and "Siberian Sleigh Ride." It will be followed by brand new songs from TSO's Fall EP release from Lava/Republic, "Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night)", classics from TSO's debut album, "Christmas Eve & Other Stories" and the rest of the heralded catalogue of rock operas.
