Mannheim Steamroller to Launch 30th Anniversary Christmas Tour in November

Chip Davis, founder and creator of Mannheim Steamroller and the industry's largest independent record label, American Gramaphone, announced that his annual Christmas concert tour will begin on Wednesday, November 12 and continue through Sunday, December 28. Two traveling ensembles will hold 85 performances across the country.

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Christmas Tour and release of Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, an album that revolutionized the Holiday Season music category. It's also the 40th Anniversary of Davis' first album in his Fresh Aire series which pioneered the New Age music category.

"This is a milestone year for Mannheim Steamroller and we thank all of our fans for making our 30/40 celebration possible," said Davis.

Grammy Award winner Davis will direct and co-produce Tour performances with MagicSpace Entertainment. 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.

Davis plans to release a new album, Mannheim Steamroller 30/40, this fall. In celebration of the 30th Anniversary Christmas Tour, tracks will include Christmas fan favorites while selections from Davis' iconic Fresh Aire series will celebrate 40 years of ground-breaking sound.

Mannheim Steamroller has sold more than 40 million albums, 28 million 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.

Having 19 gold, 8 multi-platinum and 4 platinum-certified records, Davis is among an elite group of artists that include U2, Jay-Z, and The Beach Boys with such certifications.
