The group has just kicked off their annual holiday tour which will include 99 performances in 59 markets - over just 44 days!! As you likely already know, this includes a stop in Pittsburgh and Cleveland.
This year the group will be celebrating the 25th ANNIVERSARY of their MULTI-PLATINUM release - "CHRISTMAS EVE AND OTHER STORIES." Certified 3X PLATINUM by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling THREE MILLION copies in the U.S., "Christmas Eve and Other Stories" is one of the best-selling Christmas albums of all time. Including the mega-hit "Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24," the album spawned the bring-the-whole-family rock holiday tradition.
Jeff Plate talked with Gary Rivers about the demands of being on the concert tour and how it means so much to so many people.
