Trans-Siberian Orchestra coming to New Orleans for 20th-anniversary tour

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra is heading to New Orleans this holiday season. The band will bring a multi-sensory extravaganza to the Smoothie King Center as part of its Winter Tour 2018 on Dec. 19.

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra celebrates 20 years of live performances. This year’s 20th anniversary tour will showcase “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” featuring founder/composer/lyricist Paul O’Neill’s timeless story of a runaway who finds her way into a mysterious abandoned theater.


The tour is set to kick off on Nov. 14 and will visit 65 cities across North America, for 100-plus performances, before concluding on Dec. 30.

Ticket information for the general public on-sale will be issued later.

Based on the band’s multi-platinum DVD and long running PBS fundraiser, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” this year’s tour will include new awe-inspiring effects, as well as amazing staging with an all new design from the dedicated team handpicked by the group’s late creator, Paul O’Neill.

The rock opera also 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.” Additionally, the tour will enjoy a new second set containing some of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers.

As in all previous years, a portion of every ticket sold benefits select local charities. To date, more than $15 million has been distributed from TSO to worthy charities all across North America.

Generations have enjoyed the sounds of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Now, you can make this multi-sensory extravaganza a holiday tradition for your family.
