The Mid-America Center, the site of the band’s extensive rehearsals, will host the band while it plays its rock opera, “The Lost Christmas Eve,” for the first time in concert.

The album, first released in 2004, is best known for the instrumental track “Wizards in Winter,” which is a staple at the band’s concerts and from a famous YouTube video that shows a house’s Christmas lights synchronized to the tune.

“The Lost Christmas Eve” tells a story about an angel looking for the person who best personifies the spirit of Christmas. The angel heads to New York City and finds a man who aches to reconnect with his son while making stops at a jazz club, toy store and hospital throughout the journey.
