Trans-Siberian Orchestra Debuts Rock Opera in Reading, PA
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, beginning on November 13th. 
While 1998’s The Christmas Attic features one of the band’s most popular songs "Christmas Canon"— the only album of The Christmas Trilogy never to be performed live. The 2014 Winter Tour will find TSO playing more than 120 shows in 71 cities across North America and presented nationally by Hallmark Channel. (See www.trans-siberian.com for details)
The Larry Magid Entertainment Group is proud to welcome TSO when they come to Reading for the first time on their Winter Tour! Santander Arena will host two spectacular shows on Saturday, January 3rd at 3:30pm and 8:00pm.
TSO creator, lyricist and composer Paul O’Neill explains, “After kicking off the New Year in front of two million fans at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate, followed by our second European tour, the band felt that a perfect way to end the year would be to perform the only rock opera from the trilogy that has never been seen live. Some of the songs off The Christmas Attic have never been played live. As I have always said ‘it is fun to write the songs, it is fun to record them, but they are never really completed until we perform them in front of a live arena audience.’ Of course the second half of the show will feature, TSO iconic classics and fan favorites, such as ‘Wizards In Winter,’ ‘Requiem’ and ‘Christmas Eve/ Sarajevo 12/24’”. 
Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com, The Santander Arena Box Office or charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000.
