Paramore Announces “Paramore: Writing The Future”

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

An intimate evening of music with Paramore and their friends Copeland; Spring trek to hit North America Theaters, Arenas and Festivals; Mohegan Sun Arena plays host Saturday, May 9th

UNCASVILLE, CT (January 23, 2015) — Fueled By Ramen recording group Paramore has announced “PARAMORE: WRITING THE FUTURE,” an intimate evening of music with Paramore and their friends Copeland, set to kick off beginning in late April. “It feels right to bring the Self-Titled era to a close,” said Hayley Williams. “We’ve had a very personal and hugely triumphant journey with this one. What wouldn’t feel right is saying goodbye to this time in the band’s career and not celebrating it with our fans in some special way. So we’ve decided to do one last little run with it. Smaller shows, beautiful theaters… and we’re not calling it a tour, by the way. Each night will be a little event, or as we said just a few seconds ago, a celebration.” Paramore and Copeland come through Mohegan Sun Arena for a 8:00pm concert on Saturday, May 9th.

Tickets are $35.00 and go on sale Friday, January 30th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster and Livenation.com.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, January 31st, subject to availability.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Monday, January 26th at 10:00am through Thursday, January 29th at 10:00pm. The tour dates will also see the GRAMMY® Award-nominated band appearing at an array of spring festivals, including Gulf Shores, Alabama’s Hangout Music Festival.

The upcoming tour follows the recent release of PARAMORE: SELF-TITLED DELUXE, an expanded new digital edition of their chart-topping 2013 blockbuster. PARAMORE: SELF-TITLED DELUXE is highlighted by a wide range of previously unreleased material, a new version of the PARAMORE favorite, “Hate To See Your Heart Break,” featuring duet vocals from Joy Williams (formerly of The Civil Wars). The release also includes the never-before-heard 2012 demo, “Tell Me It’s Okay,” two bonus tracks “Escape Route” and “Native Tongue” and eight electrifying live tracks recorded this past summer at Denver’s world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater.

Paramore recently earned yet another GRAMMY® Award nomination, with “Ain’t It Fun,” the RIAA platinum-certified, Top 10 hit single from PARAMORE, receiving a “Best Rock Song” nod for the upcoming 57th Annual GRAMMY® Awards. In addition, Paramore singer/songwriter Hayley Williams was named the first winner of Billboard’s Trailblazer Award, honoring her as a standout female artist who breaks from convention to make a unique mark and pave the way for new talent. The Trailblazer Award was presented last month in New York City as part of the ninth annual Billboard Women In Music Awards.

PARAMORE exploded to the apex of the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its April 2013 release – the GRAMMY® Award-nominated band’s first #1 album to date. PARAMORE showcased a string of smash singles, including two Top 40, platinum-certified hits, “Still Into You” and the aforementioned “Ain’t It Fun.” The latter track proved one of Paramore’s biggest singles to date, ascending to #2 at Top 40 outlets nationwide as well as to the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 – the band’s first ever Top 10 hit and their highest peaking song thus far on both charts.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra Debuts Their Rock Opera The Christmas Attic Live Across North America

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Returning to Mohegan Sun Arena on November 16th for two shows

Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) will wrap up 2014 by performing their rock opera The Christmas Attic live for the first time in arenas across the nation on their Winter Tour 2014, beginning on November 13th. While 1998’s The Christmas Attic features one of the band’s most popular songs “Christmas Canon,” surprisingly, it is the only album of The Christmas Trilogy never to be performed live. The 2014 Winter Tour, presented by Hallmark Channel, will find TSO playing more than 120 shows in 71 cities across North America and will play Mohegan Sun at 3:00pm and 8:00pm on Sunday, November 16th.

Tickets are $51.00 and $41.00 go on sale Friday, September 12th through Ticketmaster at 10:00am.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, September 13th, subject to availability.  See Trans-Siberian for more details.

TSO creator, lyricist and composer Paul O’Neill explains, “After kicking off the New Year in front of two million fans at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate, followed by our second European tour, the band felt that a perfect way to end the year would be to perform the only rock opera from the trilogy that has never been seen live. Some of the songs off The Christmas Attic have never been played live. As I have always said ‘it is fun to write the songs, it is fun to record them, but they are never really completed until we perform them in front of a live arena audience’. Of course the second half of the show will feature, TSO iconic classics and fan favorites, such as “Wizards In Winter,” “Requiem” and “Christmas Eve/ Sarajevo 12/24””.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s rock opera, The Christmas Attic will be re-released, to coincide with the tour, complete with bonus tracks, as well as a special vinyl edition. Called an “…inspiring story…” by USA Today and “Majestic, sweeping, …” by Billboard magazine. The album’s (and stage production’s) narrative begins on Christmas Eve, when a young girl’s curiosity leads her to a night of mischief and magic.  She decides to sneak up into the attic of her parents’ home while she should be asleep and there discovers a magical doorway to the past in the form of a mysterious trunk filled with ornaments, toys, old records and bundles of handwritten letters. A startling discovery in one of the letters, leads to an unlikely adventure.

TSO, which celebrated its 15th year of live shows last year, has consistently ranked in the Top 10 for yearly gross revenues and attendance, according to touring industry trade Pollstar. The group has played more than 1,600 shows for more than 11 million fans, and in the process, cemented itself as one of the world’s biggest arena Rock acts. This ongoing success is due to TSO founder Paul O’Neill’s vision. O’Neill has melded the sound and fury of Rock with the storytelling of Broadway to create a unique amalgamation he calls “rock theater” that leaves crowds of all ages speechless. Additionally, TSO’s live performances receives raves from critics, such as: “As the enthralled audience members filed out of the arena, more than one person was overheard saying something to the effect of ‘It gets better every year’,” “This current tour demonstrates once again the incredible showmanship of Trans-Siberian Orchestra,” and “The Trans-Siberian Orchestra is evidence that the genres of rock opera, progressive rock and symphonic rock have not died, and that they actually are thriving… What’s cool about it is that the people of all ages and all walks of life can enjoy it.”

As in all previous years, a portion of all ticket sales will go to benefit select local charities.  The consistent growth of TSO’s touring popularity has increased the group’s contributions and, to date, TSO has donated more than $11 million to local charities.

While off the road, TSO is constantly stockpiling new projects in their arsenal, including the rock operas Gutter Ballet and the New York City Blues Express, Letters from the Labyrinth, and Romanov: When Kings Must Whisper, an epic story set amidst the Bolshevik Revolution.

TSO will unveil exciting information on new music in the next few months. Stay tuned to http://www.trans-siberian.com/ for more details.
