Trans-Siberian Orchestra Performing at the Q

During the first of two shows at Quicken Loans Arena, Trans-Siberian Orchestra delivered a nearly three-hour set that featured a dizzying array of lasers, pyrotechnics and blinding lights.

During the concert, the band paid tribute to founder Paul O'Neil, who died earlier this year, with the tune "The Safest Way Into Tomorrow." Guitarist Chris Caffery, who also acknowledged the tragic death of bandmate David Z, described O'Neill as a "special human being" who had "an unwavering hope for humanity."

The concert concluded with a rousing rendition of "Cleveland Rocks" that Caffery dedicated to WNCX, one of the first radio stations to ever play the band's music.
