“It feels great to be back in the holiday spirit,” exclaims Stirling. “Nothing makes me more excited than sharing this time of year with my fans on tour. Christmas is my favorite holiday and to have the ability to perform some of my favorite Christmas classics live on stage again warms my heart.”
Lindsey Stirling released her first-ever holiday album Warmer In The Winter in 2017, marking the #1 new Christmas album of the year. Due to high demand from fans, a Deluxe Edition was issued in 2018, also topping the holiday charts. Warmer In The Winter, which has sold nearly 400,000 copies and been streamed over 195 million times, features classic and original songs, such as “Angels We Have Heard On High,” “All I Want For Christmas,” “Let It Snow,” “Christmas C’mon,” “What Child Is This,” and “Carol of the Bells,” which hit #1 on holiday radio last year, along with special guests Becky G, Sabrina Carpenter, Trombone Shorty and Alex Gaskarth (from All Time Low). PRESS HERE to listen to Warmer In The Winter. Since she was unable to hit the road in 2020, Stirling brought the holiday cheer home to fans and families worldwide via her live-streaming special “Lindsey Stirling: Home for the Holidays.” The all-new, hour-long ticketed special, which she independently created, produced, and financed, blurred the lines between concert and Christmas special, drawing over 100,000 views. In addition to stylized performances to songs off Warmer In The Winter, the one-of-a-kind experience also featured Stirling’s breathtaking performance of her hit “Crystallize,” where she hung by her hair for a captivating Cirque du Soleil-inspired aerial display - PRESS HERE to watch.
The Lindsey Stirling Christmas Program follows Stirling’s massive summer headlining Artemis U.S. Tour, which received rave reviews and recently concluded with a special virtual tour date via Moment House. The outing featured tracks off her latest chart-topping album Artemis, including “Underground,” “Sleepwalking,” “Masquerade,” “Between Twilight” and “Love Goes On and On” featuring Amy Lee, who joined Stirling onstage at her Nashville show, as well as this year’s standalone single “Lose You Now” and other hits from her extensive catalogue. Artemis, Stirling’s fifth studio album released September 2019 via BMG, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums Chart and remained on the chart for 15 combined weeks. The 13-track album has racked up nearly 220 million total global streams and has also been turned into a successful six-part comic book series.
