The show features classic Christmas hits from Mannheim Steamroller and multimedia effects in an intimate setting.

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. The group has sold more than 40 million albums, of which 28 million are in the Christmas genre. With a total of twelve holiday CDs, an average of eight Mannheim Steamroller Christmas albums occupy Billboard’s Top Seasonal Chart every year.

This fall, Davis released a new album, Mannheim Steamroller 30/40, in celebration of the group’s thirtieth anniversary Christmas tour. The album’s tracks include Christmas fan favorites along with selections from Davis’ iconic Fresh Aire series , which will celebrate 40 years of ground-breaking sound. With nineteen gold, eight multi-platinum and four platinum-certified records, Chip Davis is among an elite group of artists with similar certifications that include U2, Jay-Z, and The Beach Boys.
