Trans Siberian Orchestra Takes Over Hershey, PA For A Holiday Show

Trans Siberian Orchestra
December 16, 2017
Hershey, PA

     Trans Siberian Orchestra is known for their insane light shows and beautiful Christmas music but with a twist. The Orchestra has been touring for nineteen years and despite losing a few of their greatest members, the band holds their heads up high and continue to give their fans the traditions and show they all know and love.

TSO usually plays 2 halves of a set. The first half being their The Ghosts Of Christmas Eve story, and then the second half being non stop music from their greatest hits.

With story teller Bryan Hicks telling the story throughout the first half in between his narrative, songs that were played consisted of Good King Joy, Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24) , Music Box Blues and ended with This Christmas Day.

After the story Bryan Hicks said his goodbyes and lead guitarist Chris Cafferty took a moment to introduce the whole band/vocalists. As he ended the introduction the band immediately began the second half of the show, starting with Siberian Sleigh Ride. Throughout the second half of the set some songs included Beethoven, Wizards in Winter, A Mad Russians Christmas and ended the night with a reprise of Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24).

Yet again TSO rocks the roof off the Giant Center and sure managed to get Hershey PA in the holiday spirit!
