Trans-Siberian Orchestra will wrap up 2014 by performing their rock opera The Christmas Attic live for the first time in arenas across the country. While 1998's The Christmas Attic features one of the band's most popular songs, "Christmas Canon," it is the only album of The Christmas Trilogy never to be performed live.
The album's (and stage production's) narrative begins on Christmas Eve, when a young girl's curiosity leads her to a night of mischief and magic. She decides to sneak up into the attic of her parents' home while she should be asleep and there discovers a magical doorway to the past in the form of a mysterious trunk filled with ornaments, toys, old records and bundles of handwritten letters. A startling discovery in one of the letters leads to an unlikely adventure.
The Christmas Attic will be re-released to coincide with the tour, complete with bonus tracks as well as a special vinyl edition.
A portion of all ticket sales will go to benefit select local charities. The consistent growth of TSO's touring popularity has increased the group's contributions and, to date TSO has
donated more than $11 million to local charities.
