Orchestra to give final ‘Lost Christmas Eve’ performances

INDIANAPOLIS — Trans-Siberian Orchestra will celebrate its first 15 years of touring with an encore and final performance of its multi-platinum rock opera, “The Lost Christmas Eve.” TSO’s 2013 Winter Tour will begin on Nov. 13, playing more than 100 shows in 67 cities across North America.

B-105.7 ‘Soft Rock’ WYXB, WTHR Channel 13, Old National Bank and Live Nation will welcome TSO when they return to Indianapolis for one show at Bankers Life Fieldhouse at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 12. Tickets are on sale now with a portion of the proceeds from every ticket benefitting Riley Hospital for Children.

TSO, whose phenomena has grown year after year, has played more than 1,500 shows for more than 10 million fans in the past 15 years, and quietly became one of the world’s biggest arena rock acts. The unprecedented fan driven growth is a testament to TSO founder Paul O’Neill’s vision of “rock theater,” the perfect amalgamation of Broadway storytelling with the spectacle of rock, delighting audiences of all ages year after year.

For one final year, audiences will get to experience the modern Charles Dickens-like classic, “The Lost Christmas Eve.” Following the 2012 premiere of this acclaimed rock opera, critics were raving, calling it “… a must see for any music lover,” “… a rock ’n’ roll holiday celebration worth seeing” and an “unrivaled spectacle of sight and sound.”

“The Lost Christmas Eve” features a diverse soundtrack fusing elements of rock, classical, folk, R&B, and theatrical-styled music, with the story taking you on a journey into the “Capra-esque” world of TSO creator/producer Paul O’Neill. The critically acclaimed rock opera encompasses a rundown hotel, an old toy store, a blues bar, a Gothic cathedral, and their respective inhabitants all intertwined during a single enchanted Christmas Eve in New York City.

“The Lost Christmas Eve,” performed in its entirety for the final time, will feature the hit single “Wizards in Winter” as well as longtime crowd favorites, “Christmas Nights in Blue” and “Siberian Sleigh Ride.” It will be followed by songs from last years EP release from Lava/Republic, “Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night),” classics from TSO’s debut album, “Christmas Eve & Other Stories” and the rest of the heralded catalogue of rock operas.

While off the road, TSO is constantly stockpiling new projects in their rock theater arsenal, including the rock operas “Gutter Ballet and the New York City Blues Express,” “Letters from the Labyrinth” and “Romanov: When Kings Must Whisper,” an epic story set amidst the Bolshevik Revolution.

Since their debut in 1996, TSO has defied the rules of an ever-changing music industry being regarded as a mix of The Who’s “Tommy,” Andrew Lloyd Weber’s musicals, and Pink Floyd’s expansive light show. Year after year, the group has ranked in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and attendance, according to Pollstar magazine. Having played live to more than one million fans each year TSO saw a 15 percent increase in sales alone in 2012, transforming them into a year-round tradition that’s here to stay.

Reserved seats for the show in Indy are: $70, $60, $50, $40 and $33.50.

Tickets can be found at livenation.com, the Bankers Life Fieldhouse box office, all Ticketmaster outlets or by calling 1-800-745-3000. For more information on TSO tour dates, visit: www.trans-siberian.com.
