The No. 1 Christmas music artist makes a stop in Fargo this week for a concert celebrating an anniversary milestone. It’s Mannheim Steamroller, the touring group spreading Yuletide cheer with its blend of modern rock and Christmas music.

Now onto its 30th annual tour, Mannheim Steamroller’s stop in Fargo features a whole new show designed with the Christmas classics that made the group’s name, as well as eye-popping multimedia and digital effects. Designed by the group’s Grammy-winning founder Chip Davis, the 30th anniversary Christmas tour brings the spirit of the season and the band’s best hits and more together in “America’s favorite holiday tradition.”

With reserved seating priced at $39.50, $56.50 and $69, attending is fairly reasonably priced. Mannheim Steamroller will be playing to the east section of the Dome in the stands and on the floor.

The Fargodome would not comment on the concert’s seating capacity when contacted by The Spectrum, but it is estimated that a few thousand seats will be available for Mannheim Steamroller’s show.

Tickets have been on sale since early September and can be purchased online or by phone for a concert that celebrates not only Mannheim Steamroller’s third decade of music making, but the 40th anniversary of Davis’s first Fresh Aire record. It’s a “30/40 year,” and this tour runs Nov. 12 to Dec. 28, well-timed for the holiday season.

Over 40 cities in the United States are scheduled for stops by Mannheim Steamroller, a group which has always swung high and low around the world. From St. Petersburg, Russia, to Puerto Rico to Canada to London to Mexico, the group has proved that it is the No. 1 Christmas music artist of all time with its 27 million albums sold.

Its sound is one that continues to thrive and survive every Christmas season, and this 30th anniversary tour stop in Fargo is prime for igniting the Christmas fever. With this milestone in Mannheim Steamroller’s history, stepping out to see the show may put the star on top of a grand old Christmas season.
