DEBUTS THEIR ROCK OPERA
THE CHRISTMAS ATTIC LIVE
2014 WINTER TOUR PLAYING
Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) will wrap up 2014 by performing their rock opera The Christmas Attic live for the first time in arenas across the nation on their Winter Tour 2014. QFM96, Wildlights at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Ricart Automotive Group and Live Nation welcome TSO to Nationwide Arena for two shows on Sunday, December 28 at 3:00pm and 7:30pm. Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday, September 12, 10am with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Columbus Zoo conservation efforts and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio courtesy of TSO.
Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s rock opera, The Christmas Attic will be re-released, to coincide with the tour, complete with bonus tracks, as well as a special vinyl edition. Called an “…inspiring story...” by USA Today and “Majestic, sweeping…” by Billboard magazine. The album’s (and stage production’s) narrative begins on Christmas Eve, when a young girl's curiosity leads her to a night of mischief and magic. She decides to sneak up into the attic of her parents' home while she should be asleep and there discovers a magical doorway to the past in the form of a mysterious trunk filled with ornaments, toys, old records and bundles of handwritten letters. A startling discovery in one of the letters, leads to an unlikely adventure.
TSO, which celebrated its 15th year of live shows last year, has consistently ranked in the Top 10 for yearly gross revenues and attendance, according to touring industry trade Pollstar. The group has played more than 1,600 shows for more than 11 million fans, and in the process, cemented itself as one of the world’s biggest arena rock acts.
