Do you hear the distant sound of sleigh bells a-ringing? You do? That must be because Trans-Siberian Orchestra has announced that — surprise! — they are going to bring their crazily bombastic and holiday-themed big, big show of pyrotechnic, loud, metal-tinged and virtuosic orchestral Christmas music to a large venue near to all of us! They might be more reliable than even Santa himself!

That's right! Just today we received a missive with the email hedder "Trans-Siberian Orchestra presents 'The Ghosts of Christmas Eve' at the Palace for two performances Friday, Dec. 30 — Tickets on Sale Sept. 16." Click here for more information on how and when you can get tickets; prices are not yet available.

You already know this is going to be a super fun for the entire family event that thrills your body, soul, and credit card company.

You got it? Friday, Dec. 30, the event goes down at the Palace of Auburn Hills, with one show at 3 p.m., and the other at 8 p.m. These top-grossing performers are some hardworking Christmas lovers, right here!
