The Trans-Siberian Orchestra made their way into a town that looked Siberia-esque yesterday. No one thought about the weather though, as the story of “The Lost Christmas Eve” kept the crowd focused on a show filled with a touching story augmented by a dazzling light show and musicianship at its highest level.
The shows began with a check presentation, taken from a portion of the proceeds, of over $26,000 for the St. Augustine Hunger Center. Over the fourteen years TSO has come to town, they have left behind over $500,000 to help the needy in Cleveland.
TSO often sings of angels coming down to Earth, but they themselves can be described as a band of angels (with twin lead guitars) due to their dedication to helping Clevelanders who are down on their luck.
The shows ended with a rousing rendition of “Cleveland Rocks,” which perfectly capped off the annual gathering of Christmas rockers.
If you were not able to use the tickets you bought for either show due to the weather, you’re not out of luck as Quicken Loans Arena is giving you the opportunity to exchange your ticket for select TSO concerts. Click HERE for more information.
Also, a special congratulations goes out to our $5,000 cash winner, Lindsey Kimble!
