Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) The multi-platinum, critically-acclaimed progressive rock group today announced its highly-anticipated Christmas Eve and Other Stories." TSO's show that started small, performed to 12,000 people in five cities in 1999, which then exploded onto the national scene, eventually playing to 9 million fans over the course of an incredible 12 years (through 2011), the mega-hit "Christmas Eve and Other Stories" has grossed an incredible $377 million over 1224 performances.
A product of the vision and imagination of TSO's late founder/composer/lyricist Paul O'Neill, "Christmas Eve and Other Stories" began the unique format O'Neill called "Rock Theater" and forged a deep connection with their fans that it turned into the wildly-successful tour, cementing the group's status as a must-see, multi-generational, holiday tradition and kick-started the trend of Yuletide season tours. This year's unforgettable multi-sensory extravaganza is set to begin on November 13th and will visit 66 cities for 109 performances across North America before concluding on December 30th (see full itinerary below and online).
