For this year’s tour, two touring ensembles of the group will be traveling across the country from Nov. 11 to Dec. 29, according to the release.

“I remember when I came out with my first Christmas album in 1984 followed by our first tour,” said Davis in the release. “Back then, many in the music industry said focusing on Christmas wouldn’t work. Now 35 years later, we are still going strong.”

Davis’ independent record label, American Gramophone, has become one of the most successful indie labels according to the release. Mannheim Steamroller has sold more than 40 million albums, 29 million in the Christmas genre.

The show is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 13, at the Casper Events Center.
