Trans-Siberian Orchestra Plans Winter Tour 2017
Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) has announced its highly-anticipated 2017 Winter Tour. Over the past 20-plus years, Trans-Siberian Orchestra has become a critically-acclaimed, multiplatinum, musical powerhouse, and its annual winter tours a beloved, multi-generational holiday tradition. The 2017 tour, a completely updated presentation of TSO’s unforgettable “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” is set to begin on Nov. 16 and will visit more than 60 cities, for 100-plus performances, before concluding on Dec. 30.
Golden 1 Center in Sacramento will host two shows on Friday, Dec. 1. Tickets for both shows go on sale on Friday, Sept. 15 at 10 a.m.
TSO’s tour will be a celebration of the art and accomplishments of the lauded group’s late creator/ composer/lyricist, Paul O’Neill, and his inimitable creation, which he dubbed “Rock Theater.”
Prior to his untimely passing, O’Neill worked tirelessly with his close-knit team preparing an exciting new take on “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve” for the 2017 tour. Beginning Nov. 16, fans will experience this exciting stage spectacle, including new awe-inspiring effects, and staging, certain to make the story even more engaging for fans.
Based on TSO’s multiplatinum DVD and long running PBS fundraiser, the rock opera 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.”
The 2017 tour will also boast a rousing second set containing more of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers.
As in all previous years, a portion of every ticket sold benefits select local charities. To date, more than $13 million has been distributed from TSO to worthy charities across North America.
