Trans-Siberian Orchestra: While many rock and metal bands dabble with an orchestral backing at some point in their career, Trans-Siberian Orchestra has mastered it. Their rock operas have produced five hit albums and tour dates with amazing pyrotechnics and lighting effects. Trans-Siberian Orchestra is best known for its annual Christmas-themed tour every fall and winter, which adds an edge to primarily dated holiday music. This year is no exception, as Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Paul O'Neill had worked in the music industry a long time, developing a relationship with the progressive metal band, Savatage, as a co-writer and producer and bonding over their fusion of classical music and hard rock. O'Neill eventually started his own band and recruited Jon Oliva, Robert Kinkel, and Al Pitrelli to produce rock operas, their first being Christmas Eve and Other Stories. The themed album and following tour dates were so successful that Trans-Siberian Orchestra decided to repeat the winning on The Christmas Attic and The Lost Christmas Eve, thus completing their "Christmas Trilogy." Not limiting their operas to just one season, Trans-Siberian Orchestra released Beethoven's Last Night, which combines fact and fiction to tell the tale of Beethoven's deal with the devil the night he finished his tenth symphony. Trans-Siberian Orchestra's latest album, Night Castle, tells the story of a soldier, his true love that he knew for just one night, and the daughter he never met. The album went gold inside a year and has proven to audiences that the band's rock operas contain truly great stories.

  • A woman accused of running a prostitution ring in DeKalb County pleaded guilty on Tuesday and was sentenced to three years in prison. Darliene Crenshaw was arrested in January, along with her husband and more than 50 other people. Prosecutors said Crenshaw and her husband ran a high-end prostitution business out of apartments near the old Dunwoody police headquarters. Investigators said it was one of the largest prostitution rings ever discovered in DeKalb County. TRENDING STORIES: Widespread rain moves in late tonight, will stick around next couple days GBI employee poses for photo with murder victim’s remains PHOTOS: Meet the women on the newest season of 'The Bachelor' Channel 2 Action News was there Tuesday as Crenshaw asked the judge for mercy while fighting back tears. “Please have mercy,” Crenshaw said. “My biggest concern is not my punishment, but the punishment of my children.” Judge Gail Flake did not give the woman “first offender status,” which would have wiped her record after she completed her sentence. Samuel Crenshaw’s case has not gone to trial, but if it does, the woman’s plea deal mandates that she testify against him. Channel 2’s investigative partners at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and AJC.com contributed to this report.
