Lexington, KY (Friday, Sept 7, 2018) Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) announced its highly-anticipated Winter Tour 2018 will be returning to Lexington. TSO’s annual November-December multi-sensory extravaganza, which sells out venues year after year, has cemented the group’s status as a must-attend, multi-generational, holiday tradition. This year’s 20th anniversary tour, a presentation of TSO’s unforgettable “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” featuring founder/composer/lyricist Paul O’Neill’s timeless story of a runaway who finds her way into a mysterious abandoned theater, is set to begin on November 14th and will visit 65 cities across North America, for 100-plus performances, before concluding on December 30th (see full itinerary below). TSO’s Winter Tour 2018 is presented by Hallmark Channel.

The Hallmark Channel and iheart Media is proud to welcome TSO when they return to Lexington for their 2018 North American tour! Rupp Arena will host ONE SPECTACULAR SHOW on Thursday, December 6 at 7:30pm. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 14, 10am with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Kentucky Children’s Hospital courtesy of TSO, Live Nation and iHeartMedia.

Based on TSO’s multi-platinum DVD and long-running PBS fundraiser, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” the rock opera features such enduring fan-favorites as "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24," "O’ Come All Ye Faithful," "Good King Joy," "Christmas Canon," "Music Box Blues," "Promises To Keep," and "This Christmas Day." 2018’s tour will also boast a rousing second set containing more of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers. 

As in all previous years, a portion of every ticket sold benefits select local charities. To date, more than $15 million has been distributed from TSO to worthy charities across North America.

Reserved Tickets start as low as $45!
 
Tickets go on sale Friday, September 14 at 10am at Rupp Arena Box Office and Ticketmaster.com.

On September 28, Rhino Entertainment will release a 20th Anniversary Edition of The Christmas Attic on CD and digitally. A vinyl version of the release will be available November 23. The second installment in The Christmas Trilogy tells the story of a little girl who spends nights in an attic filled with yuletide reveries, while guitar solos and choral vocals soar over a rock orchestral backing across 16 tracks, including a previously unreleased on CD and vinyl version of “Christmas Jam (Live).”
