(NEWARK, NJ) -- The Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) will bring its highly anticipated Winter Tour 2017 to the Prudential Center on December 26th at 3:00pm and 8:00pm. 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. 2017’s tour, a completely updated presentation of TSO’s unforgettable “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” will begin on November 16 and visit more than 60 cities, for 100-plus performances.
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.
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. A portion of the proceeds from Prudential Center ticket sales will benefit Gods Love We Deliver! To date, more than $13 million has been distributed from TSO to worthy charities all across North America.
The Prudential Center is located at 25 Lafayette Street in Newark, New Jersey.
