The very longtime HardRadio friends in TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA (TSO) - the multi-platinum, critically-acclaimed progressive rock group today announced its highly-anticipated Winter Tour 2019. Returning with all-new staging and effects is the unforgettable show that started it all, Christmas Eve And Other Stories. TSO's show that started small, performed to 12,000 people in five cities in 1999, which then exploded onto the national scene, eventually playing to 9 million fans over the course of an incredible 12 years (through 2011), the mega-hit Christmas Eve And Other Stories has grossed an incredible $377 million over 1224 performances. A product of the vision and imagination of TSO's late founder/composer/lyricist and HardRadio friend Paul O'Neill, Christmas Eve And Other Stories began the unique format O'Neill called "Rock Theater" and forged a deep connection with their fans that it turned into the wildly-successful tour, cementing the group's status as a must-see, multi-generational, holiday tradition and kick-started the trend of Yuletide season tours.
