YOUNGSTOWN – Trans-Siberian Orchestra will return to Covelli Centre Nov. 20 for two performances: 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.

The performances are part of TSO’s 2022 winter tour, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve: The Best of TSO & More.”

After its first year off the road in more than two decades, TSO made a triumphant return to touring in 2021 with a 25th anniversary celebration of “Christmas Eve and Other Stories.” For 2022, TSO brings a completely updated presentation of the holiday tradition, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” to 60 cities, with 101 performances.

At least $1 from every ticket sold will benefit The Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley and Sight for All United. To date, approximately $18 million has been donated by the group to charity.

A product of the imagination of TSO’s late founder Paul O’Neill, and his wife Desi, and based on TSO’s multi-platinum CD and TV special, “The Ghosts of Chrismas Eve,” the rock opera features such enduring fan-favorites as “Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24,” “O’ Come All Ye Faithful,” “Good King Joy,” “Christmas Canon,” “Music Box Blues,” “Promises To Keep,” and “This Christmas Day.”

The show will also have a second set of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers including “Wizards In Winter,” “A Mad Russian’s Christmas,” and more.

“I love all of Paul’s stories, but ‘The Ghosts of Christmas Eve’ is one of my favorites and can’t wait to unveil this amazing new show for everyone,” said Al Pitrelli, TSO’s music director and lead guitarist. “We know some people may be having tough times, so we worked hard with the local promoters and arenas to have a low priced $29 ticket to do our part in helping out.”
