PEORIA, Ill. -- Their concert is not until November , but members of the Trans Siberian Orchestra are already tuning their guitars for a Peoria show.

The band known as TSO is gearing up for a performance at the Peoria Civic Center.

Known for their high charged guitars, spectacular lights, and creative arrangements of holiday music, TSO is set to debut a new show on the Peoria stage.

Founder Paul O'Neill says he's grateful for the band's faithful followers in the River City.

"We're switching rock operas for the winter tour for the first time in 14 years," said O'Neill.  "It's fun recording, fun writing, but as a musician, it's not real until your perform it in front of a live audience. So, the fifteenth will be the debut performance of 'The Lost Christmas Eve'.  TSO loves Peoria; it couldn't be happening in a better place. It's the heartland of America, and...we're psyched."

The Trans Siberian Orchestra concert at the Peoria Civic Center will hit the stage on November 15.
