NEW YORK -- August 13, 2013

Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) will celebrate their first 15 years of touring
with an encore and final performance of their multi-platinum rock opera, "The
Lost Christmas Eve." TSO’s 2013 Winter Tour will begin on November 13th,
playing over 100 shows in 67 cities across North America, presented by
Hallmark Channel.

TSO, whose phenomena has grown year after year, has played over 1,500 shows
for more than 10 million fans in the past fifteen years, and quietly became
one of the world’s biggest arena rock acts. The unprecedented fan driven
growth is a testament to TSO founder Paul O’Neill’s vision of "Rock Theater,"
the perfect amalgamation of Broadway storytelling with the spectacle of rock,
delighting audiences of all ages year after year.

For one final year, audiences will get to experience the modern Charles
Dickens-like classic, "The Lost Christmas Eve." Following the 2012 premiere of
this acclaimed rock opera, critics were raving, calling it "…a must see for
any music lover" , "…a rock n roll holiday celebration worth seeing!" and an
"unrivaled spectacle of sight and sound." "The Lost Christmas Eve" features a
diverse soundtrack fusing elements of rock, classical, folk, R&B, and
theatrical styled music, with the story taking you on a journey into the
"Capra-esque" world of TSO creator / producer, Paul O’Neill. The critically
acclaimed rock opera encompasses 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. "The Lost Christmas
Eve", performed in its entirety for the final time, 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 songs from
last years 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.

New this year, in response to consumer demand, Ticketmaster and Trans-Siberian
Orchestra have teamed up to develop a safe and convenient way for TSO fans to
buy tickets as gifts for friends and family in select venue’s. "Ticketmaster
is helping our fans have a seamless experience in getting tickets to their
friends and family without having to go to scalpers and the secondary market,"
says composer Paul O’Neill. "It is not only important to us that the show is
as great as we can possibly make it but also that it is affordable for anyone
no matter what their economic situation"

While off the road, TSO is constantly stockpiling new projects in their Rock
Theater arsenal, including the rock operas "Gutter Ballet and the New York
City Blues Express," "Letters from the Labyrinth" and "Romanov: When Kings
Must Whisper", an epic story set amidst the Bolshevik Revolution.

Since their debut in 1996, TSO has defied the rules of an ever-changing music
industry being regarded as a mix of The Who’s "Tommy", Andrew Lloyd Weber’s
musicals, and Pink Floyd’s expansive light show.. Year after year, the group
has ranked in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and attendance, according to
Pollstar magazine. Having played live to over one million fans each year TSO
saw a 15% increase in sales alone in 2012, transforming them into a year round
tradition that’s here to stay.

"Honestly we always hoped the band would be successful. After 15 years of
touring we never dreamt we would be where we are today but the dedication and
support of our fans has allowed this happen," reflects O’Neill. "As artists
you always want everyone to like your work as much as possible but the only
critic that really counts in the end is time."
