Trans Siberian Orchestra came together in 1996 because of Paul O’Neill. O’Neill, a famous composer, producer, and lyricist known for working with bands like AC/DC, Aerosmith, Joan Jett, and Humble Pie, wanted to make his own personal venture into the rock music. After producing the albums of metal band Savatage, he met and started collaborating with Jon Oliva, Al Pitrelli and Robert Kinkel.
Atlantic Records offered him a recording contract and the chance to start his own band. Deciding that he wanted to focus on a sound which merged together both classical music and rock, O’Neill set out to create something which was inspired by the artists which has inspired him. This included Pink Floyd, Queen, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, and so many more.
He stated that his original concept was that he would create “six rock operas, a trilogy about Christmas and maybe one or two regular albums”.Unforgettable Live Performances
Trans Siberian Orchestra is a unique band in the sense that they have sold more tickets to their live shows than they have sold albums. In fact, both Billboard Magazine and Pollstar have included them in their respective top ten lists for top ticket selling bands in the first decade of the millennium.
Having gone straight to performing large arena shows, they have gained a strong reputation for being one of the best performing acts in rock. The shows themselves are elaborate and feature a large number of performers, a light show, a string section, video screens, moving trusses, special effects, and lasers. There is also "enough pyro to be seen from the international space station".
The Washington Post described them as “an arena-rock juggernaut” and stated that their music could best be likened to "Pink Floyd meets Yes and The Who at Radio City Music Hall."
The band has sold upwards of 10 million tickets for their live shows and around 10 million of their albums.
As one of the most dynamic live bands to be performing at this time, tickets for Trans Siberian Orchestra shows are always in high demand. You can learn more about Trans Siberian Orchestra tickets here.
