TSO's tour will be a celebration of the art and accomplishments of the lauded group's late creator/composer/lyricist, Paul O'Neill, and his inimitable creation, which he dubbed "Rock Theater." Prior to his untimely passing, O'Neill worked tirelessly with his close-knit team preparing an exciting new take on "The Ghosts of Christmas Eve" for the 2017 tour. Beginning Nov. 16, fans can experience this stage spectacle, including new, awe-inspiring effects and staging designed to make the story even more engaging for fans.
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." 2017's tour will also boast a second set containing more of TSO's greatest hits and fan-pleasers.
The Winter Tour 2017 will be presented by the Hallmark Channel. As in all previous years, a portion of every ticket sold benefits select local charities. To date, more than $13 million has been distributed from TSO to worthy charities all across North America.
In July, TSO sadly lost another member, longtime bassist Dave Z (David Zablidowsky), in a tragic accident. For fans who would like to make additional donations in Paul or Dave's names, TSO suggests they do something unusually kind or generous for someone less fortunate or for someone who could just use a helping hand.
