15th annual TSO special offered as a gift across the Envision Networks®

The 15th annual edition of The Chop Shop Guitar Show’s Trans-Siberian Orchestra Christmas Special is wrapped and ready to be gifted to radio stations at no cost. Bring holiday cheer to your listeners and let them rock out to this all new two-hour TSO radio show.

Host Steve Black traveled to Nebraska and Iowa last month to attend the band’s concert rehearsals for this year’s The Ghosts of Christmas Eve tour and to talk to all four of TSO’s guitarists (Al Pitrelli, Chris Caffery, Angus Clark and Joel Hoekstra). The special features not only the music of TSO but listeners will also hear from the axe men about the music, the fans and what’s changed since the first Christmas tour 20 years ago.

2017 marked the bands best-ever-selling Christmas tour but ticket sales for this year are outpacing that historic mark.

“With the advent of social media, you gotta’ be good these days because whatever your playing is going to be broadcast around the planet and everyone’s going to be watching a YouTube of it,” said guitarist Al Pitrelli. “I think it’s great. It’s causing us to dig in and play better.”

Added Steve Black, “A wise man once said, ‘bigger is only better when its actually better’ and TSO are the musical embodiment of that simple fact.”

Envision Networks® Annual Trans-Siberian Orchestra Holiday Special is available for download now. Interested stations should contact Dave Hintz at 216-831-3761 or daveh@envisionnetworks.com for broadcast details.
