Tickets currently on sale for sell-out extravaganza
Marking the band’s 20th consecutive year of touring, Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) today announced its highly-anticipated Winter Tour 2018. TSO’s annual November-December multisensory extravaganza, which sells out venues year after year, has cemented the group’s status as a must-attend, multi-generational, holiday tradition. This year’s 20th anniversary tour, a presentation of TSO’s unforgettable “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” featuring founder, composer and lyricist Paul O’Neill’s timeless story of a runaway who finds her way into a mysterious abandoned theater, is set to begin on Nov. 14 and will visit 65 cities across North America, for 100-plus performances, before concluding on Dec. 30. TSO’s Winter Tour 2018 is presented by Hallmark Channel.
General public on sale for tickets is now open. Based on TSO’s multi-platinum DVD and long running PBS fundraiser, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” this year’s tour will include new awe-inspiring effects, as well as amazing staging with an all new design from the dedicated team handpicked by the group’s late creator, Paul O’Neill.
The rock opera also features such enduring fan-favorites as “Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24,” “O’ Come All Ye Faithful,” “Good King Joy,” “Christmas Canon,” “Music Box Blues,” “Promises To Keep,” and “This Christmas Day.” Additionally, the tour will enjoy a new second set containing some of TSO’s greatest hits and crowdpleasers.
As was done in all previous years, a portion of every ticket sold benefits select local charities. To date, more than an impressive $15 million has been distributed from TSO to worthy charities all across North America.
On Sept. 28, Rhino Entertainment will release a 20th Anniversary Edition of The Christmas Attic on CD and digitally. A vinyl version of the release will be available Nov. 9. The second installment in The Christmas Trilogy tells the story of a little girl who spends nights in an attic filled with yuletide reveries, while guitar solos and choral vocals soar over a rock orchestral backing across 16 tracks, including a previously unreleased on CD and vinyl version of “Christmas Jam (Live).”
Trans-Siberian Orchestra will come to NYCB Live/Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale on Thursday, Dec. 20, at 8 p.m. For more details on tour dates and information regarding ticket sales, visit www.trans-siberian.com.
