This year's 20th anniversary tour, a presentation of Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s unforgettable "The Ghosts of Christmas Eve," features founder/composer/lyricist Paul O'Neill's timeless story of a runaway who finds her way into a mysterious abandoned theater. TSO's Winter Tour 2018 is presented by Hallmark Channel.
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.
KOOL 108 is proud to welcome TSO when they return to Saint Paul. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Twin Cities Salvation Army courtesy of TSO and KOOL 108. To date, more than $15 million has been distributed from TSO to worthy charities all across North America.
To provide a safer environment and significantly expedite guest entry into the arena, Xcel Energy Center encourages you to not bring a bag to the event or to limit the size of the bag that you bring.

Pro tip for faster mobile entry: Add your tickets to your phone's "wallet" and have a fully charged battery.
Mobile tickets are like an airline boarding pass which can be accessed with a smartphone via the Ticketmaster app or mobile site in a QR code format and scanned at the gate for entry.
Once you are within 48 hours of your event, log on to your Ticketmaster account and add the mobile tickets to your Apple Wallet/Google Wallet app. Once you have added to the app, your QR code will be accessible for entry. This bypasses the need for Wi-Fi or cellular data at the gates.
Guests are reminded to fully charge their smartphones prior to arriving at the venue in order to access mobile tickets. Click here for more information.
