Mannheim Steamroller’s Christmas Tour Is Coming To Lubbock
It may not feel like the Christmas season right now, but in a few months, that will all change and one of the big concerts coming to Lubbock's Buddy Holly Hall later this year will be Mannheim Steamroller.
For over 35 years now, Chip Davis, the founder and creator of Mannheim Steamroller, has done a Christmas Tour. In fact, the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas Tour is the longest running tour in the entertainment industry. And this year they are performing at Buddy Holly Hall.
On Saturday, December 30, fans of Mannheim Steamroller in Lubbock and across the area will be able to enjoy a night of great Christmas music for Mannheim Steamroller.
According to a press release, back in the 80's the idea of a Christmas tour wasn't fully embraced. For Mannheim Steamroller, it worked then and continues to work today.
“I remember when I came out with my first Christmas album in 1984 followed by our first tour. Back then, many in the music industry said focusing on Christmas just wouldn’t work,” said Davis.
“Now, over 35 years later, we are still going strong. I want to thank our fans for making us part of their holiday tradition, especially after the hardships of the last few years. Today we often see multi-generational families join us during the holidays each year.”.
Davis founded his own record label, American Gramaphone, which went on to become one of the industry’s largest independent record labels. A Grammy Award winner, Mannheim Steamroller has sold more than 41 million albums, with over 31.5 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.
This year’s show will feature classic Christmas hits from the Mannheim Steamroller holiday albums along with multimedia effects in an intimate setting. Davis will direct and co-produce Tour performances with MagicSpace Entertainment.
Tickets go on sale on Friday July 28 at 10:00 a.m. Don't miss out on this great concert.
