We are heading to the Trans Siberian Orchestra concert again this year!!! We have gone many times, but we missed last year. Can't wait! And I just got this email about getting a free eBook download with every ticket purchase...COOL!!!


Hey Everyone

We've prepared a surprise for all of our loyal fans.

This year with your ticket you will receive an Amazon Kindle e-book version of TSO Creator Paul O'Neill's first novella, "Merry Christmas Rabbi," which will be released on Tuesday, November 26th, 2013. Want to read "Merry Christmas Rabbi" but don't have a kindle? You can read the eBook on your computer, smartphone or tablet using one of the free Kindle Reading Apps.

"Merry Christmas Rabbi" tells the story of a fateful Christmas Eve and how one of the craziest gambles in human history leads to a second chance for a troubled youth who finds himself beyond the point of no return. In this novella, Paul O'Neill spans generations, from WWII Germany to the modern inner-city, and fearlessly dives into the darkest places of the human condition to spin a modern parable about how, even in the grip of great evil, redemption is possible and the spark of hope can burn brightly.

After you purchase your tickets you will receive an email confirmation with your order number as usual. Your download code for the eBook, however, will not be sent out until later

A couple of days before the official release date for "Merry Christmas Rabbi" (Tuesday, November 26th, 2013) you will receive an email with your redemption code(s) along with instructions about how to redeem your download.

You get a download for every ticket you buy so don't forget to share the book with your friends.

Already have my Johnny Mathis Christmas show (with Springfield, MO Orchestra) tickets!

Those of us too far away from those excellent events expect a report back on how much you enjoyed each concert. Have Fun!!!

Since I wrote last, we've added:

A Charlie Brown Christmas with David Benoit
Mollie B Christmas Special (polka)
John Prine
Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Roy Rogers JR & The High Riders
Silver Dollar City (Christmas parades, 4 story musical Christmas tree, several plays, a number of bands of various music styles playing Christmas music, etc)
Andy Williams Christmas Show (w/Lennon Sisters & Osmonds)
Several Christmas light trails
Tony Orlando's Great American Christmas Show (which is in final run at current location but will be on tour in Dec 2013 & all of the season in 2014)

We're about to add Kenny Rogers, The Nutrcracker, A Christmas Carol, and hopefully the Radio City Rockettes @NSH,

on the fence about Daniel O'Donnell...has anyone seen him?

Still trying to see what else we can get into...

I just saw The Trans-Siberian Orchestra Friday night, for the first time. It was amazing! Awesome music, of course, but the lazers and flames everywhere, wow. I will definitely go again if they come next year!
