Mannheim Steamroller Announces 2015 Dates

The holiday season will be here before you know it. After all, the dates are here for the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas Tour!   

Thanks to two touring companies, Mannheim Steamroller will be visiting practically every city in the USA. So far more than 60 dates have been announced, with more to come.           

Last year the group founded by Chip Davis released 30/40 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its first Christmas record and the 40th anniversary of the first release in his Fresh Aire series.

Pollstar chatted with Davis in November and one of the questions we asked was why he thought so many people have been drawn to Mannheim Steamroller, attending the concerts and buying the albums year after year.

“My thought is the Christmas season is a family event and my concerts are, obviously, very family friendly,” Davis said. “When mom and dad brought their kids to the first Christmas concert back in 1984, those kids are now the moms and dads.  When Mannheim Steamroller is in your market, you go to that like you did with your mom and dad.  Now they could be grandmas and grandpas.  So you’ve got three generations sitting there together.  I’ve seen that from the stage many times.  I think that has a lot to do with the longevity, the fact that it’s a very family friendly thing. … It’s like “The Nutcracker.”

Fans will want to tune in to their local PBS stations to see the broadcast of “Mannheim Steamroller 30/40 Live,” which was filmed on tour last year. Stations nationwide will begin showing the special in June.
