AUBURN HILLS (WWJ) – Tis the season to take in the Trans Siberian Orchestra, who will be playing at the Palace of Auburn Hills on Saturday.
Founder Paul O’Neil said the rock show is done without the aid of Pyrotechnics, but is an awe to see with all the smoke, mirrors and lasers.READ MORE: Michigan Announces $1.5 Million Tuition Giveaway, 100 Children To Receive $15,000
“The only way to describe Trans Siberian Orchestra is The Who meets Phantom of the Opera meets Pink Floyd’s light show on steroids, and I’ll take anyone of those as a complement,” said O’Neil.READ MORE: AAA Offers 'Tow To Go' Program During Memorial Day Weekend
O’Neil said the Orchestra was the first band have more than 80 members and to never be an opening act. He also said all age groups like this music but one demographic in particular stands out.
“Every economic class, from the ultra-rich to the extremely poor, here’s the weird part, the average age is 21. I’m like, ’21? That’s impossible,’ but it’s true,” said O’Neil.MORE NEWS: Holiday Travel And Gas: What To Expect At The Pump
