Trans-Siberian Orchestra guitarist Chris Caffery has checked in with the following Christmas update:

"Hello everyone!

I hope you are all having a safe, fun and happy holiday season. It is a bit difficult to write to 29,000 people individually, so I figured it was an ok time for a bulletin again!

TSO arrived in Rochester, Michigan this afternoon for our Christmas break. Not exactly home, but it is a very nice town. The hotel is amazing and the whole main street is covered in Christmas lights. I have never seen anything like it.

We had an amazing dinner at The Chop Shop restaurant here and headed back to the hotel.The whole town closed up at 9PM until Wed. morning. This is not a terrible thing because I do need the rest and have been a bit sick on this tour. I managed to get to bed quite early...BUT, I woke up at oddly enough 12:24AM and can't fall back to sleep. I have always had this problem on Christmas Eve, since I was a kid. So, I sit here, sleepless, typing and watching the Christmas Story marathon on TBS.

We have TSO band dinner tomorrow at the hotel, always a great time! The tour has been so amazing this year. We have sold over 1,100,00 tickets and that number is climbing! Thanks to my friends and fans who have seen the show so far and thanks in advance to the ones who will see us in the final 2 weeks. Still 14 shows to go!

I hope you all have an amazing New Year, I am most likely going to spend most of the year writing and recording my new solo CD. I will also be in the studio helping to finish the TSO Nightcastle CD. I have a few shows planned for my solo band and of course will see you all next fall with TSO, but after nearly 10 months on the road in 2007 I really would like to stay in one place for a little while! BUT...you never know what will come my way!

Once again Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!"


p.s. "You'll shoot your eye out kid!!!"

Black Stone Cherry sends the following festive message:

Hello everybody,
Christmas Eve already!

We would like to take this time and wish you all a very happy, safe, and merry Christmas! We hope that you all are able to be with your families and friends tonight on Christmas Eve and especially tomorrow on Christmas Day! Christmas is a time for family, love, respect, and a time to give back and make people feel good. It's about appreciating what you have and not taking anything for granted. Let us all remember the real reason for the season upon us and hold that magical story in our hearts and minds while we all celebrate!

Also... we send out our prayers and thoughts to all of our troops who won't be able to be home on Christmas. Everyone should think of them and their families and keep them close in your hearts as well... they are our heroes and wish the best for them and their families, especially this time of year!

So there ya go, everyone be happy, rejoice, and tell someone you love and appreciate them while you're celebrating throughout the week!

We're working hard on our new music, and let us tell ya... these new songs will shake you up and down and put you through the spin cycle... we promise! We'll be recording the album early in the new year... so watch for many updates soon!

Before we leave, once again... everyone have a very Merry Christmas!
Love you all,
Ben, Chris, Jon, and John Fred
