Trans Siberian Orchestra Marks 15 Years with Winter 2013 Tour
Progressive rock megaband Trans-Siberian Orchestra have just announced a Winter tour, and the last chance(s) to see “The Lost Christmas Eve”, the final installment of their Christmas Trilogy.
If I’m honest, the tour looks absolutely brutal, with most days comprising three to four separate performances, though obviously Trans-Siberian Orchestra are no strangers to hard work, having been performing together for 15 years, across over 1500 shows for more than 10 million fans worldwide. Those numbers are pretty staggering, I know.
The tour itself is actually more like two tours, with one troupe starting in Toledo, Ohio, the other playing in Council Bluffs, Iowa. It’s complicated – what I can tell you is that the whole thing kicks off on November 13th, finishes up on December 30th and totals at 67 performances in all.
First performed in 2012, “The Lost Christmas Eve” has done pretty well for itself, all things considered, with tickets selling like hotcakes, and the accompanying album going double platinum.
“The Lost Christmas Eve” takes place on a special Christmas Eve in New York City, and follows the interconnected lives — people living in a rundown hotel, a toy store, a Gothic cathedral and more. It will utilize the unique blend of musical theater, opera, drama and of course, hard rock, for which they have become legend.
