TSO had two devastating blows in 2016 and 2017. First, the band lost its visionary head, Paul O’Neill, after he accidentally overdosed on prescription drugs in 2016. While the band was learning how to function without this integral member, its bassist David Z. had a fatal car accident while on tour in 2017.Since then, the band has been driven by performing a fitting tribute to these two dear friends in TSO’s holiday extravaganza; their traditional Christmas show. Therefore, TSO is pulling out all the stops on their 2017 Christmas tour.
Music director and guitarist Al Pitrelli has mentioned that a lot of emphasis is being paid to the pyrotechnics this year, to add color and dramatic flavor to the show. Pitrelli is also looking at the band’s phenomenal 1999 album “Ghosts of Christmas Eve” for the concerts’ set list. Furthermore, the band is making use of lighting shows and laser displays to translate the beats and bass in the song in order to provide audiences a sensory experience as well. Pitrelli wants to put on a show that O’Neill and David Z would have been proud of.
The 2017 Tour
“Ghosts of Christmas Eve” is what TSO has titled its 2017 Christmas tour after their 1999 live album. The name, in hindsight also becomes a reminder to the two members of the TSO family who are no more. This tour is headed to a number of cities including Oakland.
