Multi-platinum, progressive rock group Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) is back in Denver for its highly anticipated 2022 winter tour, The Ghosts of Christmas Eve – the Best of TSO & More presented by Hallmark Channel. After its first year off the road in more than two decades, TSO made a triumphant return to touring in 2021 with a 25th anniversary celebration of Christmas Eve and Other Stories. For 2022, TSO brings a completely updated presentation of the unforgettable, multi-generational holiday tradition, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” to 60 cities across the nation. 

Denver is excited to welcome TSO when they return to Ball Arena for two spectacular shows on November 19 at 3pm and 8pm. 


When I think of Christmas, I think of Trans-Siberian Orchestra. To be honest, it seems like they've been around a lot longer than 25 years, because I simply can't remember Christmastime without the amazing guitar riffs of "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24" or the sweet and calming sound of "Christmas Canon". I also can't remember a time that I didn't have "attend a TSO concert" on my bucket list. I literally can't wait to be surrounded with a sound that I like to refer to as part Broadway, part rock opera, and part old school, New York City (my hometown), classic rock.

The best part? I have passed my love for Trans-Siberian Orchestra on to my husband and children, who each automatically claim an instrument when a TSO song comes on in the car or at home. You've never seen a group of air musicians as talented as us.

Go grab your tickets now for the perfect kick off to the Christmas season for your whole family. You will love every minute of TSO's feast for the senses, and you will impress your children with your cool factor.

Keeping with the O'Neill's vision (Paul O’Neill, and his wife Desi), TSO remains one of rock’s most charitable bands. Once again, thankfully, TSO will give at least $1 from every ticket sold to charity. To date, approximately $18 million has been donated by the group. 

Desi O’Neill said, “we want to thank the fans so much for the kindness they showed in coming out last year. It meant the world to our family. Moreover, the credit for any charitable donation is due to you not us. The only way we are able to help all is because of you.”

A product of the imagination of TSO’s late founder Paul O’Neill, and his wife Desi, and based on TSO’s multi-platinum CD and TV special, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” the rock opera features such enduring fan-favorites as "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24," "O’ Come All Ye Faithful," "Good King Joy," "Christmas Canon," "Music Box Blues," "Promises To Keep," and "This Christmas Day." 2022’s tour will also boast a rousing second set containing more of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers including “Wizards In Winter,” “A Mad Russian’s Christmas,” and many more.

“It was so special to be back playing live last year. When you love something as much as we do and it's taken away, it made us super thankful to be back. I look forward to seeing all our ‘repeat offenders’ and all our new friends when we hit the road,” said TSO’s music director and lead guitarist Al Pitrelli. “I love all of Paul’s stories, but ‘The Ghosts of Christmas Eve’ is one of my favorites and can’t wait to unveil this incredibly amazing new show for everyone. God Bless all of you and see you in November and December when we celebrate in-person once again.”
