Award-winning pop-violinist Lindsey Stirling announces her new Snow Waltz tour of North America, in support of her newest album Snow Waltz, where she'll bring the holiday spirit from coast to coast. Her local concert is scheduled for December 7th at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC).
Stirling's unique interpretation of beautifully nostalgic holiday music will be more dynamic than ever—intertwining dance, trapeze, lyra, and aerial all while delivering an impeccable violin performance. See below for Stirling's full tour routing. Stirling's live performance is a force to be reckoned with. She's performed for more than 800,000 people on her headline tours, and her co-headlining tour with Evanescence was named one of Live Nation's best-selling amphitheater tours of 2018. The "unlikely music phenomena" (The New York Times) sold over 250k+ tickets on her Christmas tours and sold over 15k tickets for her live streamed Christmas special in 2021, which was seen by over 100,000 people.
Lindsey's new Christmas album Snow Waltz is out October 7th via Concord. Featuring eight classic covers and five original tracks, Snow Waltz delivers Stirling's immersive arrangements and mesmerizing melodies but with a seasonal twist, featuring songs that promise to be the perfect soundtrack for the holiday season. The album's first single "Ice Storm" is an original guitar-fueled and wildly rousing instrumental, which shines a new light on the multi-faceted musician's rock-leaning sensibilities.
The follow-up to her debut holiday album Warmer in the Winter - which earned a #1 spot on Billboard's Holiday Albums Chart, and #1 on Amazon and iTunes Holiday Album Charts - Snow Waltz emerges as a singular new entry in the holiday-music canon, once again proving Stirling's extraordinary gift as an instrumental storyteller.
