The Oakdale Leader - - LIVING -

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.
