Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Winter Tour 2017 

The Ghosts of Christmas Eve comes to Grand Rapids on December 3 

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) announced its highly-anticipated Winter Tour 2017. Over the past 20-plus years, Trans-Siberian Orchestra has become a critically-acclaimed, multi-platinum, musical powerhouse, and its annual winter tours a beloved, multi-generational holiday tradition. The 2017 winter tour, a completely updated presentation of TSO’s unforgettable “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” will visit more than 60 cities, for 100-plus performances, including a stop at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids for two shows on Sunday, December 3, 2017. Show times are 3:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Tickets for both shows will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, September 15 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets will be available at the Van Andel Arena and DeVos Place® box offices, online at Ticketmaster.com, and charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000. Ticket prices are $48.50, $58.50, $68.50, and $78.50 with a portion of the proceeds benefitting local charities courtesy of TSO. A purchase limit of eight (8) tickets will apply to every order and prices are subject to change.

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 November 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 multi-platinum DVD and long running PBS fundraiser, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” 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.” 2017’s 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 all across North America.
