When it comes to Christmas music, what better way to celebrate the holiday season than rocking out to wailing guitars and merry metal renditions of your favorite holiday tunes? Earlier this fall, the critically-acclaimed holiday favorite, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, announced its highly anticipated Winter Tour 2017.

For more than two decades, Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) and its annual winter tours have been a beloved holiday tradition for people of all ages.

The 2017 tour will celebrate the life and accomplishments of the group’s late founder and artistic visionary, Paul O’Neill, and his creation in which he dubbed as “Rock Theater.”

Prior to his untimely passing, O’Neill and his team worked tirelessly to prepare new awe-inspiring effects and staging for a thrilling new take on “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve” for this year’s tour that is certain to make the story even more exciting and engaging for audiences.

Now traveling with two separate touring entities, the revamped presentation of TSO’s unforgettable “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve” will kick off on November 16th visiting more than 60 cities, for over 100 performances, including a stop in NC’s Greensboro Coliseum last night, before it concludes on December 30th.

Based on TSO’s multi-platinum DVD and long-running PBS fundraiser, the rock opera features fan favorites such 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 tour will also rouse a second set featuring more of TSO’s popular hits and crowd-pleasers.
