It might be the dog days of August, but Christmas is coming -- for real. And how do we know this? Because tour dates are out for Trans-Siberian Orchestra, the operatic heavy-metal Christmas extravaganza, and Raleigh is on the itinerary once again. This year's TSO visitation will happen on Dec. 2 at the RBC Center; two shows, at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Ticket on-sale details to come.
Feel that nip in the air? It's the Trans-Siberian Orchestra!
