The Press Release:
Multi-platinum, progressive rock group Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) – today announced the dates for its highly anticipated 2022 winter tour, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve – the Best of TSO & More.” After its first year off the road in more than two decades, TSO made a triumphant return to touring in 2021 with a 25th anniversary celebration of Christmas Eve and Other Stories. For 2022, TSO brings a completely updated presentation of the unforgettable, multi-generational holiday tradition, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” to 60 cities across the nation. This year’s tour kicks off on Wed., Nov. 16 with performances in Green Bay and Council Bluffs, and will conclude after 101 shows on Fri., Dec. 30 (see full itinerary below and

Presales for TSO fan club members will be held on Thurs., Sept. 8 at 10 a.m. local time and Fri., Sept. 9 at 10 a.m. local time. The public on sale is set to begin on Fri., Sept. 16 at 10 a.m. local time. Beginning with the public on sale, special $29* tickets will be available for one week or while supplies last.

Keeping with the O’Neill’s vision (Paul O’Neill, and his wife Desi), TSO remains one of rock’s most charitable bands. Once again, thankfully, TSO will give at least $1 from every ticket sold to charity. To date, approximately $18 million has been donated by the group. Desi O’Neill said, “we want to thank the fans so much for the kindness they showed in coming out last year. It meant the world to our family. Moreover, the credit for any charitable donation is due to you not us. The only way we are able to help all is because of you.”

A product of the imagination of TSO’s late founder Paul O’Neill and his wife Desi, and based on TSO’s multi-platinum CD and TV special, “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.” 2022’s tour will also boast a rousing second set containing more of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers including “Wizards In Winter,” “A Mad Russian’s Christmas,” and many more.

“It was so special to be back playing live last year. When you love something as much as we do and it’s taken away, it made us super thankful to be back. I look forward to seeing all our ‘repeat offenders’ and all our new friends when we hit the road,” said TSO’s music director and lead guitarist Al Pitrelli. “I love all of Paul’s stories, but ‘The Ghosts of Christmas Eve’ is one of my favorites and can’t wait to unveil this incredibly amazing new show for everyone. We know some people may be having tough times, so we worked hard with the local promoters and arenas to have a low priced $29 ticket to do our part in helping out. God Bless all of you and see you in November and December when we celebrate in-person once again.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: When I see the TSO tour dates posted the melodies of “it’s the most wonderful time of the year” start ringing in my head and that’s because historically speaking I’ve seen the Trans-Siberian Orchestra on every single tour since the second one. Their first tour came and went with the blink of an eye and was only a few short dates that I didn’t even know about. That amounts to 22 years of catching them in concert and seeing some “23” shows. Now I know several people who I see in the audience who go multiple times but with my running this here website and needing to see other artists on tour its rather hard to zip around from state to state catching other performances. Of course I’m totally willing if any of our readers are just sitting on money that they don’t need and are feeling philanthropic ;p So unless I’ve counted wrong there are 100 shows in total for the East Coast and West Coast Companies of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra with many of the dates having a second show. For a number of years I’ve been hitting the matinee show when it stops at the Prudential Center. I find that it lets me get back into Brooklyn with enough time to sit and relax with some dinner. Each show is of course the same format because they are experts at it by this point. So wrapping this up I wonder who out there is planning on hitting the tour at some point or another. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time. Please keep safe out there.
