A progressive rock band that continues to push the boundaries more than any other group before, with 7 million albums sold, the Trans- Siberian Orchestra will be appearing in Michigan again this holiday season. Chris O'Neil, the bands creator  was inspired to create this rock opera power house  while  working with some of the "rock n' roll " titans such as Aerosmith and Def Lepard. Lights, lasers, smoke and talent  will smother the stage this Friday for TSO's winter tour taking place at the Van Andel Arena located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
