Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) has announced the dates of its 2016 Winter Tour, once again featuring one of the group’s beloved stories performed in its own renowned audio visual manner. In its Platinum anniversary year, TSO is bringing back its treasured tale, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” to 61 cities across North America, concluding, after 105 shows, with a special New Year’s Eve performances in Seattle and Cleveland.
BIG 100.3 and 97.1 WASH FM are proud to welcome TSO when they return to Washington, D.C., for their 2016 North American tour. Verizon Center will host one spectacular show on December 15 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, Sept. 16 at 10 a.m. with a portion of the proceeds benefitting The Capital Area Food Bank courtesy of TSO and BIG 100.3 and 97.1 WASH FM.
TSO is pleased to announce that each concert ticket purchased online will include a digital audio copy of The Ghosts of Christmas Eve. This is the first time these songs have been released in an audio package, and the album features a bonus track titled “Music Box Blues (Daryl Pediford Tribute New York 2004).”
Debuted last year to rave critical and fan reviews, and based on TSO’s multi-platinum DVD and long running PBS fundraiser, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” follows the journey of a runaway who breaks into an abandoned vaudeville theater on December 24th. While seeking shelter from the cold, the teen is discovered by the theater’s caretaker who uses the ghosts and spirits from the building’s past to turn her life around. 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.” 2016’s tour will see an all new second set containing some of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers.
