The Trans-Siberian Orchestra will rock the MidAmerican Center this Wednesday night with their rock-opera inspired spectacle. Drawing from the best of their classic rock fore fathers, The Who, Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Pink Floyd, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra merge a dazzling laser light show with pyrotechnics, multiple stages and the best sound money can buy. Says band founder Paul O’Neill, “I wanted to take the very best of all the forms of music I grew up on and merge them into a new style.” TSO really cemented its following in concert. The group hit the road in 1999, beginning an annual November-December extravaganza that O’Neill takes pride in being “as over the top as we can make it.” O’Neill wants TSO’s live shows to create an indelible emotional mark the resonates with the audience well after the show. “I want people to walk out of our shows speechless and … still not believing what they have seen was possible.”
