Since its first tour in 1999, TSO has been one of the most successful acts in the concert business, consistently rating in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and audience attendance. In that time, TSO's annual tours have become a must-see tradition for rock-centric holiday revelers, attracting a uniquely all-ages audience captivated by their cross-genre blending of metal and progressive rock, classical themes and great storytelling, with unequaled staging and pyrotechnics. TSO's 2008 Winter Tour was its most successful to date. In ten short weeks, it played to over 1.2 million fans, generating revenues in excess of $40 million and earning the most attendance on Billboard's Top 25 Tours chart.
Few Christmas albums can make the claim of having sold over three million copies in the U.S., but TSO's classic 1996 debut album Christmas Eve & Other Stories can. It has been 3x Platinum certified by the RIAA.
Musically, the band has taken some traditional Christmas songs...and mixed in some modern rock music. The result is stunning and very impressive. It is filled with energy that simply blows you away.
