ABOUT GODSMACK: In February of 1995, after being behind the drums for more than 23 years, Sully Erna decided to start a new band. It was only a matter of time before he realized he needed to take charge and step out from behind the kit to front the band himself. One year and a couple of member changes later Godsmack was born. Sully Erna, Robbie Merrill and Tony Rombola hit the studio and recorded their first CD titled All Wound Up. They did this over one weekend for a measly twenty six-hundred dollars. Over the next two years, the band played throughout the Boston scene with drummer Joe Darco and began earning a strong reputation of being a great live band. The noise they were making in the New England area created a snowball effect like no other.

In 2000, Godsmack released their second CD, Awake. This album’s title track dominated rock radio and broke chart records throughout 2000 and 2001. The CD’s instrumental track “Vampires” earned the band its first Grammy nomination.

Godsmack toured Awake selling out arenas and outdoor venues nationwide.

In 2002, Sully was asked to A&R the soundtrack for the motion picture The Scorpion king, the third installment in the Mummy saga. The song Godsmack wrote and performed lived up to its title “I Stand Alone” became the #1 single at Rock Radio and the most played Active Rock song in 2002 for 14 weeks straight.

After spending more than four years on the road, the band decided to take a break before heading back into the studio. It was during this break that Shannon Larkin, a friend of Sully’s for 15 years, formerly of the Wrathchild America, AMEN and Ugly Kid Joe, was asked to replace Tommy Stewart. The new lineup headed to Maimai to write and record the bands third CD. Faceless was released in April 2003 and became the #1 selling record in America of that week.

The band released Godsmack IV on April 25, 2006 and their latest album, The Oracle, hit the streets on May 4, 2010. For more information, please visit http://www.godsmack.com.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra opens “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve” Tour in Erie

Fan Club On-Sale to Begin September 9

Public Tickets Available Beginning September 18

The Ghosts of Christmas Eve | Wednesday, November 18 | 4pm & 8pm | Erie Insurance Arena

Los Angeles, CA – August 18, 2015 – Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) has announced the dates of its 2015 Winter Tour, once again featuring one of the group’s beloved stories performed in its own renowned audio visual manner. This year’s enchanted Yuletide tale is “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” which TSO will take to 60 cities across North America to perform 100 shows.

The tour goes on pre-sale to fan club members from September 9 through September 11, and then on sale to the general public on September 18 (see www.trans-siberian.com for details).

Based on TSO’s multi-platinum DVD and long running PBS fundraiser, the story follows the journey of a young runaway who, on Christmas Eve, breaks into an abandoned vaudeville theater seeking shelter from the cold, and the ghostly visions she experiences from that concert hall’s past. “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve” features such lasting crowd-pleasers 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.”

TSO creator, lyricist and composer Paul O’Neill says, “‘The Ghosts of Christmas Eve’ brings me back to TSO’s beginnings. We recorded this TV show before TSO had ever toured and it was almost like our first show. It was filmed in a majestic old theatre in Jersey City and we got to work with the legendary Ossie Davis, Jewel and Michael Crawford. There was a magic we captured and I think that’s why it was so successful as a fundraiser for PBS. The special features some of the best songs from our catalog at the time. We want to keep the spirit of the story alive and weave it together to encompass the best of the Christmas Trilogy that fans of all three stories can enjoy. The band always gets excited when they get to do something new and now that we are finished up with Letters From The Labyrinth there is going to be lots of new music and twists for our fans on this tour.”

This year’s tour follows the massive success of The 2014 Winter Tour, which grossed more than $51 million in just 52 days, played to nearly 1,000,000 fans. In total, TSO has played in excess of 1,600 shows for more than 11 million fans cementing itself as one of the world’s biggest arena rock acts. Trans-Siberian Orchestra has consistently ranked in the Top 10 for attendance and grosses according to Pollstar, the touring industry trade publication, and was named among the “Top Touring Artists of the Decade” by Billboard (in 2009). This ongoing success is due to Paul O’Neill’s vision. O’Neill has melded the sound and fury of rock with the storytelling of Broadway to create a unique amalgamation he calls “rock theater” that leaves crowds of all ages speechless. With new fans being introduced to the wonder presented on stage every year, and TSO constantly striving to provide a new experience, audiences can be assured the best is yet to come in 2015.

As in all previous years, a portion of all ticket sales will go to benefit select national and local charities. To date, TSO has donated approximately $12 million to worthy charities.

TSO will unveil exciting news about Letters From The Labyrinth (Lava Records/Republic Records), the group’s first full-length release since 2009’s Night Castle, shortly. Visit www.trans-siberian.com for more details.
