Description: Paul O’Neill launched a project in 1996 that over the past 20 years has become a critically-acclaimed, multi-platinum, musical powerhouse: Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The progressive rock group’s record-setting “rock theater” tours sell out venues year after year and have cemented TSO’s status as a must-attend, multi-generational, holiday tradition. Now, TSO’s creator/lyricist/composer O’Neill is proud to announce that in its Platinum anniversary year, the group is bringing back its treasured tale, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” to 61 cities across North America including here in Wichita on December 2. Debuted last year to rave critical and fan reviews, and based on TSO’s multi-platinum DVD and long running PBS fundraiser, “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” follows the journey of a runaway who breaks into an abandoned vaudeville theater on December 24th. While seeking shelter from the cold, the teen is discovered by the theater’s caretaker who uses the ghosts and spirits from the building’s past to turn her life around. 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." 2016’s tour will see an all new second set containing some of TSO’s greatest hits and fan-pleasers.

Melissa Etheridge: Holiday Trio

Get more info about this event »

Description: Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Etheridge has attained status as one of America's favorite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades. Melissa stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which led to an appearance on the 1989 Grammy Awards show. For several years, her popularity grew around such memorable originals as "Bring Me Some Water," "No Souvenirs" and "Ain't It Heavy," for which she won a Grammy in 1992. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, "Yes I Am" (1993). The collection featured the massive hits, "I'm the Only One" and "Come to My Window," a searing song of longing that brought Etheridge her second Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Performance. In 1995 Etheridge issued her highest charting album, "Your Little Secret," which was distinguished by the hit single, "I Want to Come Over." Her astounding success that year led to Etheridge receiving the Songwriter of the Year honor at the ASCAP Pop Awards in 1996. Most recently, she released her latest album "This Is M.E." in September 2014 which features singles "Take My Number," "A Little Bit of Me," and "Monster." http://www.k-state.edu/mccain/events/2016-2017/melissa-etheridge.html The McCain box office is open weekdays 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 90 minutes before each performance. 785.532.6428 Submitted by: Todd Holmberg McCain Auditorium
