Vocalist JEFF SCOTT SOTO (TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, ex-TALISMAN) checks in with this update:

  "Lots to announce and throw out today!

First of all, I want to announce and finally answer the burning question I've been bombarded with the past weeks: Yes, I will be returning for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra Winter Tour this year! It is exciting to be a part of the next chapter of this monster machine as we embark on a new show based on the story and music behind The Lost Christmas Eve album. The US tour begins Nov 15th and goes through Dec 30th so see you all out there for that!

Next, we should have a release date soon for the new W.E.T album, I'm stoked for people to hear it and I really hope its embraced as the first one was so we can plan to take it on the road sometime in 2013.

Speaking of the road, I can proudly announce the Damage Control tour that begins next month in Brazil will finally be planned and booked throughout Europe beginning early April 2013. A lot of questions on where in Europe we'll play and the answer is yes, I will finally be doing shows in the UK again! We'll see our way through the core of where I have been adding new territories as well so Spain, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Bulgaria, etc., get ready to rock...and I mean 'ROCK'! (Sorry, no news yet on a US tour but its a work in progress!)

  Lastly, the buzz for Damage Control has been so great I plan to start writing and recording the follow up album by mid 2013 to hopefully see a late 2013 release and yes, this one will be chockful of everything you'd expect in a rockin' JSS album.

Hope this keeps you all satisfied for a bit, all the juicy details of these tidbits will be revealed as they get closer to fruition. Rock On!"

  For the first time ever, TSO will be performing their acclaimed rock opera, The Lost Christmas Eve live! Join them this Winter for the exciting on-stage premiere of The Lost Christmas Eve, a story of loss and redemption on a magical Christmas Eve in New York City.
