Trans-Siberian Orchestra “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve” 


 

Van Andel Arena®, December 22

Grand Rapids—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 Grand Rapids for two spectacular shows at Van Andel Arena on Thursday, December 22, 2016 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Tickets for both shows are on sale now 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 $47.50, $57.50, $67.50, and $77.50 with a portion of the proceeds benefitting local charities courtesy of TSO. Prices are subject to change.

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.

“This show was an experiment, to take something that was conceived for TV and try to express that story live on stage,” said TSO creator, lyricist and composer Paul O’Neill. “Integrating segments of the TV show, with a live narrator, and full rock band was something TSO has never done. It brought back so many memories to see Ossie Davis and everyone else who helped make that TV special into the annual tradition that it has become. The overwhelming response from the fans during the 2015 Winter Tour drove the band’s decision to take it back out on the road this year. As always we have new artists, new special effects and lots of surprises in store. We are looking forward to seeing everyone on the road.”

As in all previous years, $1 to $2 of every ticket sold benefits select local charities. To date, in excess of $13 million has been distributed to worthy charities all across North America.
