After being forced to take a year off, Chip Davis, founder of Mannheim Steamroller, announced the act will do its annual holiday tour this year.
“I remember when I came out with my first Christmas album in 1984 followed by our first tour,” Davis said. “Now, over 35 years later, we are still going strong. I want to thank our fans for making us part of their holiday tradition. Today we often see multi-generational families join us during the holidays each year and we can’t wait to see them again in 2021.”
The Grammy Award winning band has sold more than 41 million albums, 30 million in the Christmas genre. This year’s show will feature original classic Christmas hits from the first Mannheim Steamroller Christmas album.
