Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Winter Tour Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the Multi-Platinum Album, Christmas Eve and Other Stories
Multi-platinum, progressive rock group Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) will bring its highly-anticipated Winter Tour to Mohegan Sun Arena for two spectacular shows on Sunday, November 28th at 3:00pm and 8:00pm.
Tickets are $89.50, $79.50, $69.50, & $50.50 and go on sale September 17th at 10:00am via Ticketmaster.com. Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office Beginning Saturday, September 18th, subject to availability.
This year’s long-awaited tour celebrates the 25th anniversary of the group’s landmark album Christmas Eve and Other Stories, the three-time certified platinum album that launched the group to superstardom and spawned the bring-the-whole-family rock holiday tradition that has now played to more than 17 million fans all across the nation.
“After an incredibly trying year for everyone we are beyond excited to be able to say that we’re bringing Christmas Eve and Other Stories back to all of you,” said TSO Music Director and lead guitarist Al Pitrelli. “We were amazed by the turnout for last year’s livestream and how many of you continued to celebrate this tradition we have created together. It’s been 25 years since Paul (O’Neill) first introduced all of us to this timeless tale. Let’s celebrate this milestone event together. God bless and stay safe everyone.”
A product of the vision and imagination of TSO’s late founder/composer/lyricist Paul O’Neill, Christmas Eve and Other Stories follows a story 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 and Other Stories” takes listeners all over the world to help reunite a young girl with her distraught father.
The album and tour feature such fan-favorites as “Ornament,” “Promises To Keep,” “This Christmas Day,” “O’ Come All Ye Faithful,” “Good King Joy,” and the epic “Old City Bar.” The rock opera also features such TSO classics as “Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24.” Additionally, the tour will enjoy a second set containing some of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers including “Christmas Canon,” “Wizards In Winter” and many more.
Since its touring debut, TSO has played more than 2,000 Winter Tour shows for approximately 17 million fans, with tour grosses of more than $725 million, and has sold in excess of 12 million albums and DVDs. Recently in June 2020, TSO was ranked No. 1 on Pollstar magazine’s Worldwide Ticket Sales Top 100 Tours Mid Year chart, No. 2 on the Top 100 North American Tours Mid Year chart, and No. 3 on the Top 100 Worldwide Tours Mid Year chart. Once again, TSO will give at least $1 from every ticket sold to charity. To date, approximately $16 million has been donated by the group.
