Saturday To-Do: Trans-Siberian Orchestra

TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA
3 p.m. and 8 p.m., Verizon Arena. $25-$61.

Another holiday tradition in Central Arkansas: Trans-Siberian Orchestra's prog-rock-opera take on Christmas carols. If you've ever seen a Christmas concert and thought to yourself, "This is really special, but it'd be a lot more special with enough state-of-the-art pyro and laser lights to make a Pink Floyd fan's knees go wobbly," then this is the show for you. You've got all that, plus electric violins, more than a dozen vocalists, dancing girls, narrators, probably some holograms, definitely a rendition of that seasonal classic, "Nutrocker." Last year's winter tour played in front of more than 1.2 million fans; it was one of the year's top grossing. Look for both concerts at Verizon to be filled to near capacity.
