“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, while taking you on a journey into the world of TSO creator / producer, Paul O’Neill. This year’s show encompasses a unique blend of settings ranging from an old toy store to a Gothic cathedral with their respective inhabitants all intertwined during a single enchanted Christmas Eve in New York City. “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, “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 each year. 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.
