The Trans-Siberian Orchestra rocked Buffalo Saturday with their lively, spectacular music accompanied by dazzling lights coordinated with the beat of their songs. The audience sat in awe as the group started to jam on their electric guitars, as colored-lights flickered from side to side. The orchestra played Christmas hits on guitars and drums but also featured a good variety of vocal songs with a narrator in between each song telling a tale about Christmas.
The group played two shows at HSBC Arena, one in the afternoon and one at night and both sold out, for a combined crowd of 26,000 people.
Before the show began, the orchestra and radio station Star 102.5 presented a check for $13,303 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Buffalo. The orchestra explained that they donate a dollar from every ticket sold to a charity. So if you went to the concert, your money went to a good cause.
If you missed the hit show this year, start planning for next year before the tickets sell out.
