It may not be Christmastime but Trans-Siberian Orchestra are taking to the road anyways this spring for a tour celebrating the group’s first non-Holiday release, Beethoven’s Last Night. The orchestra will hit New England in May, performing at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Sunday, May 6. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $31.

Originally released in 2000, Trans-Siberian Orchestra will re-release the Beethoven’s Last Night in a more expanded version next week. Beethoven’s Last Night: The Complete Narrated Version will include all the material from the original release, as well as the narration of its live performances and a booklet of illustrations and lyrics. The two-CD set will available exclusively at Walmart stores beginning March 13, as well as at all upcoming concerts.

“Like usual, we play the rock opera in its entirety in the first half of the show, but we’ve added some new material and new lighting to the back-half to change things up,” guitarist Al Pitrelli said in a a recent interview with Local Music Guide. “It’s familiar, but it has a new twist. We don’t want to change things too much. People don’t like too much change.”

Beethoven’s Last Night
