Trans-Siberian Orchestra is coming to Pittsburgh to perform their Brand-New Winter Tour "The Ghosts of Christmas Eve".
Trans-Siberian Orchestra is a rock orchestra founded in 1996. The band's musical style incorporates progressive rock, symphonic metal, and heavy metal, with influences from classical music. Trans-Siberian Orchestra has recorded and performed renditions of traditional Christmas songs, which are among their most popular works. They are also known for their elaborate concerts, complete with a full light show and dozens of pyrotechnics that are synchronized with the actual performance - outstanding! Their Winter tour is an unbelievable, high-energy evening that will bring you to your feet in thunderous applause - we've seen it before and can't wait to go again!
This year's enchanted Yuletide tale is "The Ghosts of Christmas Eve", which TSO will take to 60 cities across North America to perform 100 shows.
Based on TSO's multi-platinum DVD and long running PBS fundraiser, the story follows the journey of a young runaway who, on Christmas Eve, breaks into an abandoned vaudeville theater seeking shelter from the cold, and the ghostly visions she experiences from that concert hall's past. The Ghosts of Christmas Eve features such lasting crowd-pleasers as "Christmas Eve Sarajevo 12/24," "Oh, Come All Ye Faithful," "Good King Joy," "Christmas Canon," "Music Box Blues," "Promises To Keep," and "This Christmas Day."
TSO creator, lyricist and composer Paul O'Neill says, ˜The Ghosts of Christmas Eve brings me back to TSO's beginnings. We recorded this TV show before TSO had ever toured and it was almost like our first show. It was filmed in a majestic old theatre in Jersey City and we got to work with the legendary Ossie Davis, Jewel and Michael Crawford. There was a magic we captured and I think that's why it was so successful as a fundraiser for PBS. The special features some of the best songs from our catalog at the time. We want to keep the spirit of the story alive and weave it together to encompass the best of the Christmas Trilogy that fans of all three stories can enjoy. The band always gets excited when they get to do something new and now that we are finished up with Letters From The Labyrinth there is going to be lots of new music and twists for our fans on this tour.
The string section often includes local musicians at each town they perform in. The list of songs has not been officially released yet, but usually their shows are divided into two halves: The first consisting of the story and songs of Christmas, the second a mix of songs from their albums plus a few miscellaneous others to round out the evening. The finale is like nothing you've ever seen before - absolutely awesome!!
