‘The Ghosts of Christmas Eve – The Best of TSO & More’ comes to Mohegan Sun Arena for two shows
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 Wednesday, November 23rd at 3:00pm and 8:00pm.
Tickets are $99.50, $89.50, $69.50, $49.50, and $29 and go on sale Friday, September 16th at 10:00am via Ticketmaster.com. Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office Beginning Saturday, September 17th, subject to availability.
A limited number of specially priced $29 tickets will be available for one week or while supplies last.
After its first year off the road in more two decades, TSO made a triumphant return to touring in 2021 with a 25th anniversary celebration of “Christmas Eve and Other Stories.” For 2022, TSO brings a completely updated presentation of the unforgettable, multi-generational holiday tradition, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” to 60 cities across the nation.
A product of TSO’s late founder Paul O’Neill and his wife Desi and based on TSO’s multi-platinum CD and TV special, “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.” This year’s tour will also boast a rousing second set containing more of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers including “Wizards in Winter,” “A Mad Russian’s Christmas,” and many more.
“It was so special to be back playing live last year. When you love something as much as we do and it’s taken away, it made us super thankful to be back. I look forward to seeing all our ‘repeat offenders’ and all our new friends when we hit the road,” said TSO’s music director and lead guitarist Al Pitrelli. “I love all of Paul’s stories, but ‘The Ghosts of Christmas Eve’ is one of my favorites and can’t wait to unveil this incredibly amazing new show for everyone. We know some people may be having tough times, so we worked hard with the local promoters and arenas to have a low priced $29 ticket to do our part in helping out. God Bless all of you and see you in November and December when we celebrate in-person once again.”
Keeping with the O’Neill’s vision, TSO remains one of Rck’s most charitable bands. Once again, TSO will give at least $1 from every ticket sold to charity. To date, approximately $18 million has been donated by the group.
