Trans-Siberian Orchestra announced its highly-anticipated Winter Tour 2018 will be returning to KeyBank Center in Buffalo, NY.  TSO’s annual November-December multi-sensory extravaganza, which sells out venues year after year, has cemented the group’s status as a must-attend, multi-generational, holiday tradition. This year’s 20th anniversary tour, a presentation of TSO’s unforgettable “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” featuring founder/composer/lyricist Paul O’Neill’s timeless story of a runaway who finds her way into a mysterious abandoned theater, is set to begin on November 14th and will visit 65 cities across North America, for 100-plus performances, before concluding on December 30th.  TSO’s Winter Tour 2018 is presented by Hallmark Channel.
