Shredding and Christmas; since when do those two mix? Shredding is probably the best thing to happen to Christmas since Christmas itself. Prior to 1996 I wouldn’t have agreed, but now it’s 2010 and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra have been proving it for over ten years. In fact, with over 7 million albums sold, it may just be a damn good formula. The Trans-Siberian Orchestra will be bringing their genre-shattering arena rock to Newark’s Prudential Center on Dec. 18. Tickets range from $28-$72. Doors 2 p.m. Show 3 p.m. All ages.
