Christmas lived on for a few extra days this year in Milwaukee, as the Trans-Siberian Orchestra returned for one last round of shows at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, before the city welcomes its brand new arena in 2018.
With two packed shows (3pm & 8pm), TSO again celebrated the season of giving by donating a dollar from every ticket sale to Milwaukee’s Hunger Task Force, which serves over 50,000 local families every month. This year TSO presented the Hunger Task Force with a check totaling $22,536, exceeding last year’s donation by $5,000.
And while fans enjoyed over 2 hours of lights, pyrotechnics, rock music and the Christmas spirit, it’s the stories that fill the seats that makes TSO’s annual visit so special. Families filled the arena, continuing their yearly traditions of seeing the Trans-Siberian Orchestra live, while thousands of newcomers also attended tonight’s performances, likely starting new holiday traditions of their own. Whether its ‘Wizards In Winter’, ‘Christmas Eve’ or one simply enjoying the best Christmas sounds that rock has to offer, Trans-Siberian Orchestra gives fans plenty of reasons to show up year-after-year and make TSO part of their holiday celebration.
Check out our photos from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Milwaukee stop on their 2017 tour below, and if they are coming to a city near you before the year’s end, get tickets and go see TSO for yourself!
