Deck the Halls with a Mannheim Steamroller Christmas at The Warner Theatre
This neoclassical new age group is bringing its holiday tour to the Warner
Friday, Dec. 13
Next Friday, the "Ultimate Holiday Tradition" comes to Erie in the form of Mannheim Steamroller's Christmas tour. With 35 years of Christmas magic under their collective belt, the Omaha, Nebraska-based neoclassical new age group is bringing their annual holiday tour to The Warner Theatre this season. For this special performance, Mannheim Steamroller — billed as "the number one Christmas artist of all time" — will be performing the album that started it all, 1984's Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, in its entirety.
Mannheim Steamroller Christmas features a number of contemporary holiday classics, including their renditions of "Deck the Halls" and "We Three Kings." The album helped launch Mannheim Steamroller into mass popularity, landing them a number 50 spot on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart; it has since been certified platinum six times over by the Recording Industry Association of America and has sold over 3.5 million physical copies in the U S. alone. To further cement the album's legacy, a special 35th anniversary vinyl pressing of Mannheim Steamroller Christmas will also be available. For Mannheim Steamroller, the holiday is more than a tradition; it's a festive celebration that they would be more than happy to have the Erie community join them in. — Aaron Mook
