WINTER TOUR CELEBRATES THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE MULTI PLATINUM ‘CHRISTMAS EVE AND OTHER STORIES’ ALBUM

Multi-platinum, progressive rock group Trans-Siberian  Orchestra (TSO) will be bringing its highly-anticipated Winter Tour back for 2021 to Dayton! This year’s long-awaited tour celebrates the 25th anniversary of the group’s landmark album  Christmas Eve and Other Stories, the 3x certified platinum album that launched the group to superstardom and spawned the bring-the-whole-family rock holiday tradition that has now  played to more than 17 million fans all across the nation.  

Trans-Siberian  Orchestra (TSO) will perform two spectacular shows at the Nutter Center in Dayton this ChristmasMix 107.7, Voss Auto Network & Live Nation are proud to welcome TSO when they return to  Dayton for their 2021 North American tour! Wright State University’s Nutter Center will host  two spectacular shows on December 4th at 3pm and 8pm.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Greene Medical Foundation, Leukemia + Lymphoma Society and Ronald McDonald House Dayton courtesy of TSO.  

TSO’s Music Director & lead guitarist Al Pitrelli said, “After an incredibly trying year for  everyone we are beyond excited to be able to say that we’re bringing Christmas Eve and Other  Stories back to all of you. We were amazed by the turnout for last year's livestream and how  many of you continued to celebrate this tradition we have created together. It’s been 25 years  since Paul (O’Neill) first introduced all of us to this timeless tale. Let’s celebrate this milestone  event together. God bless and stay safe everyone.”  

A product of the vision and imagination of TSO’s late founder/composer/lyricist Paul O’Neill,  Christmas Eve and Other Stories follows a story 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 and 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,” "Promises To Keep," "This  Christmas Day," "O’ Come All Ye Faithful," "Good King Joy,” and the epic “Old City Bar.” The  rock opera also features such TSO classics as "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24." "Additionally, the  tour will enjoy a second set containing some of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers including  "Christmas Canon,” “Wizards In Winter” and many more. 

This year’s unforgettable multi-sensory extravaganza is set to begin on November 17th and will  visit 59 cities for 99 performances across America before concluding on Thursday, December  30th in Cleveland and St. Louis (see full itinerary on www.trans-siberian.com).
