12/28/18 – Trans-Siberian Orchestra 2018 Winter Tour

12/28/18 – Trans-Siberian Orchestra 2018 Winter Tour

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra will celebrate the 20-year anniversary of their annual winter tour later this year, hitting 65 cities across the U.S.

The tour, which is based off of the 1999 Ghosts of Christmas Eve TV movie, will kick-off on November 14 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Throughout the trek, they’ll make a stop in Chicago on December 28th with shows at 3pm and 8pm at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont IL.

“It’s hard to believe that 20 years ago, we had just seven shows,” Al Pitrelli, TSO’s music director and lead guitarist, told USA TODAY. “We were so happy that 10 to 11 thousand people came out to those shows and fell in love with Paul’s creation. Last year, with Paul’s family steering the ship, we realized that his dream will live beyond him, and that makes us all very proud, happy and thankful.”

2/14/19 – SARAH BRIGHTMAN IN CONCERT

2/14/19 – SARAH BRIGHTMAN IN CONCERT

Sarah Brightman will perform at The Chicago Theater on February 14, 2019.

“I’m so excited to share this album with everyone. HYMN is excitingly eclectic, encompassing many different styles, and I’m looking forward to performing the new songs on my world tour. Every project I’ve done has come from an emotional place, and I wanted to make something that sounded very beautiful and uplifting. To me, ‘hymn,’ suggests joy — a feeling of hope and light, something that is familiar and secure, and I hope that sentiment resonates through the music,” said Sarah Brightman.

HYMN’s mystical, uplifting tone is set with its title track — a song by British prog-rock band Barclay James Harvest. The release also encompasses songs by such modern composers as Eric Whitacre (“Fly To Paradise”), Japanese superstar musician and songwriter Yoshiki (“Miracle”), and German DJ Paul Kalkbrenner (“Sky and Sand”). The album closes with a new rendition of Brightman’s signature smash duet with Andrea Bocelli, “Time To Say Goodbye,” singing lyrics that she wrote herself, and sung in English for the first time.

Listen to the title track “HYMN” from Sarah Brightman’s new album, also titled “HYMN” Available Now: https://deccagold.lnk.to/SarahBrightm…
