Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) The multi-platinum, critically-acclaimed progressive rock group today announced its highly-anticipated Winter Tour 2019. Returning with all-new staging and effects is the unforgettable show that started it all, “Christmas Eve and Other Stories.” TSO’s show started small, performed to 12,000 people in five cities in 1999, and has since exploded onto the national scene and played to over 9 million fans over the course of an incredible 12 years (through 2011). The mega-hit “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” has grossed an incredible $377 million over 1,224 performances. Trans-Siberian Orchestra will appear in Cleveland, Ohio at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse (formerly known as Quicken Loans Arena) for two performances on Friday, December 27th at at 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. 

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, September 13th at 10:00 a.m. at RocketMortgageFieldHouse.com or any of Discount Drug Mart's 58 northern Ohio locations starting Monday, September 16th. Fans can sign up to become an insider and gain access to Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse presales by clicking here.

Please note: The Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse box office is temporarily closed through late September to complete the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse Transformation, the renovation project to update and modernize the almost 26-year-old arena. During this time, tickets for any announced future event scheduled at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse are available for purchase at RocketMortgageFieldHouse.com or at any of Discount Drug Mart's 58 northern Ohio locations.

A product of the vision and imagination of TSO’s late founder/composer/lyricist Paul O’Neill, “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” began the unique format O’Neill called “Rock Theater” and forged a deep connection with their fans that it turned into the wildly-successful tour, cementing the group’s status as a must-see, multi-generational, holiday tradition and kick-started the trend of Yuletide season tours. This year’s unforgettable multi-sensory extravaganza is set to begin on November 13th and will visit 66 cities for 109 performances across North America.

Starting today, August 19th, the Winter Tour 2019 will begin its “12 Days of TSO Verified Fan Registration” where all fans can sign up at tso.tmverifiedfan.com/ (powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan) for exclusive access to the best tickets for the best price before tickets go on sale to the general public. Presales will begin for TSO fan club members on Thursday, September 5th for December 1st - December 30th tour dates.

“Christmas Eve and Other Stories” is based on the triple-platinum album of the same name and follows a story by TSO’s late founder/composer/lyricist Paul O’Neill. In keeping with the classic line “If You Want To Arrange It, This World You Can Change It,” the story is set on Christmas Eve when a young angel is sent to Earth to bring back what is best representative of humanity. Following favorite TSO themes of “strangers helping strangers” and “the kindness of others,”  “Christmas Eve & Other Stories” takes listeners all over the world to help reunite a young girl with her distraught father. The album and tour feature such fan-favorites as “Ornament” and the epic “Old City Bar,” both of which have not been performed live in recent years. The rock opera also features such TSO classics as "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24," "O’ Come All Ye Faithful," "Good King Joy," "Promises To Keep," and "This Christmas Day." Additionally, the tour will enjoy a new second set containing some of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers including "Christmas Canon," “Wizards In Winter” and many more.

Since its historic touring debut, TSO has played nearly 2,000 Winter Tour shows for more than 16 million fans, with tour grosses of more than $725 million, and has sold in excess of 12 million albums and DVDs. Year-after-year TSO hits the upper reaches of the domestic and worldwide tour charts. Recently in July 2019, TSO was ranked No. 6 on Pollstar’s North American Tours Mid Year chart and No. 8 on Pollstar’s Worldwide Tours Mid Year chart. In 2018, TSO came in at No. 16 on Pollstar’s 2018 Top 200 Year End North American Tours and at No. 17 on Pollstar’s 2018 Year End Worldwide Ticket Sales Top 100 Tours chart with more than 925K tickets sold. Additionally in July, TSO was featured in Billboard’s Money Makers of 2018. In 2009, Pollstar ranked TSO at No. 20 on the “Top Tour(s) of the Decade” and Billboard placed TSO at No. 25 on its “Top Touring Artists of the Decade.”

Always embracing the O’Neill’s sense of altruism, TSO remains one of rock’s most charitable bands. This year, as in years past, TSO will give at least $1 from every ticket sold to charity – to date approximately $16 million has been donated by the group.

TSO’s Winter Tour 2019 is presented by Hallmark Channel.
