The Oak Ridge Boys 2018 Christmas Tour
Once you’ve seen The Oak Ridge Boys Christmas show you’ll want to make it a family tradition. Every year the tour plays to packed houses across North America. This year’s Christmas Celebration show combines the Grammy Award-winning quartet’s classic country-pop hits, like “Elvira”, “Bobbie Sue”, and “Thank God For Kids”, with a mixture of traditional and contemporary holiday songs that includes religious, romantic, and fun holiday tunes. The full-production show with its beautiful visuals, falling snow, and Christmas trees also includes a visit from Santa Claus, and songs from the groups seven bestselling Christmas CDs.
Grammy Award-winning Country Music Hall of Famers Celebrate Christmas with Timeless Hits and Holiday Favorites
For 28 years now, Country Music Hall of Fame members The Oak Ridge Boys have been a part of their fans’ holiday seasons with their annual Christmas tour. This year, the Grammy Award-winning group will play to packed houses across America during the 2017 Christmas Celebration tour, which will take the group to over two-dozen cities in 18 states throughout the US, November 14 through December 22.
A mixture of traditional and contemporary songs—including religious, romantic and fun holiday tunes—makes up the set list, which includes songs from the Oaks’ six bestselling Christmas CDs. A highlight of the evening is the much-loved ‘rocking chair’ segment where each BOY rocks by the fireplace and shares personal thoughts about Christmas.
Oaks’ lead singer, Duane Allen, says, “Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love the positive things about the season…. the joy, happiness, giving, sharing, time with family, and gifts. The beautiful lights and decorations. Christmas music. Special food. And most of all the true meaning, which, of course, is celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Every year I look forward to taking our Christmas tour all over the USA. I hope everyone will come out this year and celebrate Christmas with The Oak Ridge Boys.”
Known for their iconic and multi-platinum selling hit “Elvira”, along with other chart-toppers like “Bobbie Sue”, “Thank God For Kids”, and “Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight”, The Oak Ridge Boys have achieved a decorated career, winning five GRAMMY® Awards, and multiple CMA, ACM and Dove Awards for their cross-over brand of pop, country and gospel music that spans multiple generations. Made up of members Duane Allen, Joe Bonsall, William Lee Golden and Richard Sterban, whose unmistakable bass on the lyric “oom poppa, mow mow”, has become one of music’s most recognized sing-alongs on an international scale, The Oak Ridge Boys are members of the Grand Ole Opry and achieved arguably country music’s highest honor in October 2015 when they were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
