Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO), the multi-platinum, critically-acclaimed progressive rock group, brings its highly-anticipated Winter Tour 2019 to Oklahoma City on Sunday, December 8.
Returning with all-new staging and effects is the unforgettable show that started it all, 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 tour is set to begin on November 13th and will visit more than 60 cities, for 100-plus performances, before concluding on December 30. Christmas Eve and Other Stories is based on the triple-platinum album of the same name and follows a story by TSO's late founder/composer/lyricist Paul O'Neill. In keeping with the classic line "If You Want To Arrange It, This World You Can Change It," the story is set on Christmas Eve when a young angel is sent to Earth to bring back what is best representative of humanity. Following favorite TSO themes of "strangers helping strangers" and "the kindness of others," Christmas Eve & Other Stories takes listeners all over the world to help reunite a young girl with her distraught father.
2018 marked one of TSO's best years on the road, with their hit tour and the release of the 20th Anniversary Edition of The Christmas Attic. 2018's tour hit 60 cities across North America and played to more than 975,000 people. The run was ranked No. 16 on the "Top 200 North American Tours" chart and No. 31on the "Top 100 Worldwide Tours" chart by concert industry trade Pollstar magazine. As in all previous years, $1-$2 of every ticket sold benefits select local charities. To date, in excess of $16 million has been distributed to worthy charities all across North America.
