The Trans Siberian Orchestra (TSO), the multi-platinum, critically-acclaimed progressive rock group will be bringing back its Winter Tour 2019 to San Antonio for two shows at the AT&T Center on Dec. 23.
TSO will be performing “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” - the album which first propelled the group into stardom back in 1996. Today’s version will be with all new staging and effects.
A product of the vision and imagination of TSO’s late founder, composer and lyricist Paul O’Neill, “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” began the unique format O’Neill dubbed “Rock Theater” and forged a deep connection with fans.
The show turned into a wildly-successful tour, cementing the group’s status as a must-see, multi-generational, holiday tradition, and further kick-starting the trend of Yuletide season tours. This year’s multi-sensory extravaganza is set to begin on Nov. 13 and will visit 66 cities for 109 performances across North America before coming to a conclusion on Dec. 30.
Tickets for both shows go on sale Saturday, Sept. 14 at 10 a.m. with a portion of the proceeds benefiting local charities courtesy of TSO.
