Trans-Siberian Orchestra Returns to Xcel Energy Center Dec. 29 for Two Spectacular Shows
Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) announced its highly-anticipated Winter Tour 2018 will be returning to Saint Paul! TSO's annual Nov.-Dec. 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 Nov. 14 and will visit 65 cities across North America, for 100-plus performances, before concluding on Dec. 30. TSO's Winter Tour 2018 is presented by Hallmark Channel.
KOOL 108 is proud to welcome TSO when they return to Saint Paul for their 2018 North American tour! Xcel Energy Center will host two spectacular shows on Saturday, Dec. 29 at 3 and 8 p.m. Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday, Sept. 14 at 10 a.m. with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Twin Cities Salvation Army courtesy of TSO and KOOL 108.
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.
