The Official Statement:
Dear TSO Fans,
We waited as long as we could, hoping for months, that we would not have to make this sad announcement. Unfortunately, we are not going to be able to tour this holiday season. While all of us in TSO wanted to be able to hit the road this November, in the interest of public health and safety, we regrettably cannot move forward. The well-being of our fans, our crew, and of venue staff is of the utmost importance to us and, with that in mind, we must forgo touring during this pandemic.
In a normal autumn, gearing up for tour, loading up the trucks, and making our way to rehearsal is the highlight of our year. It means that shortly thereafter, we are going to be in your city and doing what we love most, playing live for you.
When we can all safely be together, we look forward to seeing you all again on tour. We hope you are all taking the necessary precautions to keep healthy.
We thank you for your ongoing support of TSO.
Be good and love one another.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I really am without words at this point but let’s face it, a massive show like that which the Trans-Siberian Orchestra puts on twice daily for most of the run is just not possible in this current climate. That being said it sure does suck because I’ve been supporting their annual events since their second year and its a very important part of my growth as a person who cobbles together show reviews and the rest. 2020 is slowly becoming a swear word at this point. I can’t wait until it ends since its taken away so much and left so many in uncertainty. As the group said above, health is a paramount concern and I feel the same way. I want all of my friends safe and sound so please be careful out there and follow whatever directives that you are supposed to. If they say “wear a mask” then wear the mask. If they say “stay 6 feet apart” then do that. See you next time.
