“Just last year, we marked the 30th Anniversary of our holiday tour and it’s hard to believe that we’re now planning for our 31st year of celebrating Christmas with our many fans throughout the country,” said Chip Davis.
Beginning in June, PBS stations nationwide will be broadcasting “Mannheim Steamroller 30/40 Live”. Filmed last year, the milestone special marks the group’s 30 years of musical holiday magic and 40 years of groundbreaking Fresh Aire compositions. This year’s tour includes many of the performances in the PBS special broadcast.
In addition to being a holiday tradition for many families, the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas Tour regularly attracts repeat attendance from multi-generational guests and is one of the longest running tours in the music industry.
Mannheim Steamroller has sold more than 40 million albums, 28 million in the Christmas genre. Their holiday CD’s have become synonymous with Christmas and occupy top positions on Billboard’s Seasonal Chart every year.
