TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA DEBUTS NEW LIVE WINTER SHOW “THE LOST CHRISTMAS EVE”
PRESENTED BY HALLMARK CHANNEL
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13TH / 8PM
JACKSONVILLE VETERANS MEMORIAL ARENA

PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE GREATER JACKSONVILLE AREA USO

Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) is teaming up with Hallmark Channel to present the live debut of the band’s multi-platinum rock opera, “The Lost Christmas Eve”. A modern classic that can stand side by side with a Charles Dickens tale, “The Lost Christmas Eve” is the newest chapter in the TSO holiday tradition.

Live Nation FL is proud to welcome TSO when they return to Jacksonville for a spectacular show at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena on Thursday, December 13th at 8pm. Reserved Seat Tickets are on-sale now, with a portion of the proceeds from every ticket sold benefitting The Greater Jacksonville Arena USO.

Executive Director of the Greater Jacksonville Area USO, John Shockley, expresses his gratitude to everyone involved. He says, “On behalf of the local 250,000 military members and their families who sacrifice every day to defend the freedoms we all enjoy, I would like to express my sincere thank you to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Live Nation, and SMG Jacksonville. Your collective generosity to donate a portion of each show ticket purchased is greatly appreciated and will support numerous Greater Jacksonville Area USO programs we provide to local troops/families at home and to troops overseas, many who are serving in combat areas. Thank you again for this tremendous donation and support.”

“The Lost Christmas Eve” has been called “a story of loss and redemption” and features a diverse soundtrack fusing elements of rock, classical, folk, Broadway, and R&B, which takes you on a journey into the “Capra-esque” world of TSO creator / producer, Paul O’Neill. Encompassing a rundown hotel, an old toy store, a blues bar, a Gothic cathedral, and their respective inhabitants all intertwined during a single enchanted Christmas Eve in New York City, this year’s show is sure to start any TSO fan’s holiday season off right. “The Lost Christmas Eve” will be performed in its entirety and will feature the hit single, “Wizards in Winter”, as well as longtime crowd favorites, “Christmas Nights in Blue” and “Siberian Sleigh Ride.” It will be followed by brand new songs from TSO’s Fall EP release from Lava/Republic, “Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night)”, classics from TSO’s debut album, “Christmas Eve & Other Stories” and the rest of the heralded catalogue of rock operas.

TSO founder Paul O’Neill discusses the band’s ambitious undertaking: “This is an exciting year for the band and something we’ve been planning for years. ‘The Lost Christmas Eve’ has always been a personal favorite of mine. To debut this rock opera live marks a new and exciting chapter in TSO’s Rock Theater evolution.”

Since their debut in 1996, TSO has defied the rules of an ever-changing music industry. Year after year, TSO has ranked in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and attendance (according to Pollstar magazine) by playing live to over one million fans annually. Since their inception, TSO has sold in excess of 8.5 million albums and performed to more than 9 million fans in 150+ cities worldwide. The band’s rock operas have cemented them as a leader in Rock Theater, being regarded as a mix of The Who’s “Tommy”, Andrew Lloyd Weber’s musicals, and Pink Floyd’s expansive light show.
