"THE LOST CHRISTMAS EVE" IN ARENAS NATIONWIDE
PRESENTED BY HALLMARK CHANNEL
Saturday, December 1st | 3PM & 8PM | Jobing.com Arena
Beginning November 15th, Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) is teaming up with Hallmark Channel to present the live debut of the band's multi-platinum rock opera, "The Lost Christmas Eve" for over 100 shows in 65 cities across North America. A modern classic that can stand side by side with a Charles Dickens tale, "The Lost Christmas Eve" is the newest chapter in the TSO holiday tradition.Live Nation is proud to welcome TSO when they return to Glendale for two spectacular shows at Jobing.com Arena on Saturday, December 1st at 3pm & 8pm. Tickets for both shows are on-sale Monday, September 24 at 10am.
A portion of the proceeds from the 3pm show will go to Operation Santa Claus courtesy of 99.9 KEZ & EVA 95.5 and for the 8pm show they will go to Arizona Animal Welfare League courtesy of 100.7 KSLX. As a special offer Ticketmaster & livenation.com will be offering a download of TSO’s newest release “Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night)” with every ticket sold online, which will be redeemable on October 30th.
"The Lost Christmas Eve" has been called "a story of loss and redemption" and features a diverse soundtrack fusing elements of rock, classical, folk, Broadway, and R&B, which takes you on a journey into the "Capra-esque" world of TSO creator / producer, Paul O'Neill. Encompassing a rundown hotel, an old toy store, a blues bar, a Gothic cathedral, and their respective inhabitants all intertwined during a single enchanted Christmas Eve in New York City, this year's show is sure to start any TSO fan's holiday season off right. "The Lost Christmas Eve" will be performed in its entirety and will feature the hit single, "Wizards in Winter", as well as longtime crowd favorites, "Christmas Nights in Blue" and "Siberian Sleigh Ride." It will be followed by brand new songs from TSO's Fall EP release from Lava/Republic, "Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night)", classics from TSO's debut album, "Christmas Eve & Other Stories" and the rest of the heralded catalogue of rock operas.
TSO founder Paul O'Neill discusses the band's ambitious undertaking: "This is an exciting year for the band and something we've been planning for years. 'The Lost Christmas Eve' has always been a personal favorite of mine. To debut this rock opera live marks a new and exciting chapter in TSO's Rock Theater evolution."
Since their debut in 1996, TSO has defied the rules of an ever-changing music industry. Year after year, TSO has ranked in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and attendance (according to Pollstar magazine) by playing live to over one million fans annually. Since their inception, TSO has sold in excess of 8.5 million albums and performed to more than 9 million fans in 150 cities worldwide. The band's rock operas have cemented them as a leader in Rock Theater, being regarded as a mix of The Who's "Tommy", Andrew Lloyd Weber's musicals, and Pink Floyd's expansive light show.**KEY EVENT INFORMATION**Gates Open:
