Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) has announced the dates of its 2015 Winter Tour, once again featuring one of the group’s beloved stories performed in its own renowned audio visual manner. This year’s enchanted Yuletide tale is “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” which TSO will take to 60 cities across North America to perform 100 shows.
The tour stops at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines Thursday, November 19.
The tour goes on pre-sale to fan club members from September 9 through September 11, and then on sale to the general public on September 18 (see www.trans-siberian.com for details). Tickets for the Wells Fargo Arena show will be available exclusively through Hy-VeeTix.com, 844-55-HYVEE, participating Hy-Vee Food Store locations, or at the Wells Fargo Arena Ticket Office.
Based on TSO’s multi-platinum DVD and long running PBS fundraiser, the story follows the journey of a young runaway who, on Christmas Eve, breaks into an abandoned vaudeville theater seeking shelter from the cold, and the ghostly visions she experiences from that concert hall’s past. “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve” features such lasting crowd-pleasers 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.”
TSO creator, lyricist and composer Paul O’Neill says, “‘The Ghosts of Christmas Eve’ brings me back to TSO’s beginnings. We recorded this TV show before TSO had ever toured and it was almost like our first show. It was filmed in a majestic old theatre in Jersey City and we got to work with the legendary Ossie Davis, Jewel and Michael Crawford. There was a magic we captured and I think that’s why it was so successful as a fundraiser for PBS. The special features some of the best songs from our catalog at the time. We want to keep the spirit of the story alive and weave it together to encompass the best of the Christmas Trilogy that fans of all three stories can enjoy. The band always gets excited when they get to do something new and now that we are finished up with Letters From The Labyrinth there is going to be lots of new music and twists for our fans on this tour.”
