Trans-Siberian Orchestra Announce 2017 U.S. Tour

Trans-Siberian Orchestra have announced a massive tour for the Christmas season. The band are calling it the “Ghosts of Christmas Eve” tour, and are planning to make it a “one-of-a-kind audio-visual experience.” The trek will contain two separate touring groups, who will be honoring their late founder Paul O’Neill, who passed away in April. This season is especially difficult, due to the fact that they not only lost O’Neill, but they also lost bassist David Z., who was tragically killed when Adrenaline Mob’s RV was hit by a truck.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra To Continue In Honor Of Late Founder Paul O’Neill

Trans-Siberian Orchestra have revealed that they will be continuing on following the death of their founder Paul O’Neill. The group commented:

“While all of us, the members of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra family, are heartbroken by the tragic loss of our friend and leader Paul O’Neill, we are determined to carry on the rock theater project to which he dedicated his life.

Paul always talked about how he saw TSO as both an idea and ideal that would continue long after he stepped off the ‘flight deck’ (his name for the stage). We hope to continue his work of providing a timeless, multi-generational tradition like those created by his idol Charles Dickens.

In that spirit, we are proud to announce that Trans-Siberian Orchestra will return with their 2017 Winter Tour featuring the cherished tale ‘The Ghosts of Christmas Eve’!
