The Piano Guys will spend the first few months of 2018 performing across North America. The band recently revealed their winter and spring touring plans with 15 shows scheduled to keep the contemporary-classical duo on the road until early May.
The duo, made up of Jon Schmidt on piano and Steven Sharp Nelson on cello, celebrated the release of their second Christmas album (seventh overall) this past Friday. Titled Christmas Together, the 12-track LP features their modernized classical spin on holiday favorites in addition to a few originals. "American Idol" alumnus David Archuleta makes an appearance on the album’s opening track, “Angels from the Realms of Glory.”
Schmidt and Nelson will tour throughout the fall and into the holiday season, with highlight December shows at San Diego’s Copley Symphony Hall on Dec. 4 and Salt Lake City’s Vivint Smart Home Arena on Dec. 8. Their 2018 run will start with a few shows in late January, and won’t pick up again until late March. Pre-sale tickets for select shows on their upcoming 2018 run go on sale Thursday, Nov. 2 and can be purchased here.
The two musicians have spent much of this past year on the road, having started their current tour back on Aug. 15 and have made notable stops at venues like Red Rocks Amphitheatre. In addition to Schmidt and Nelson, the band's non-performing members, videographer Paul Anderson and producer Al van der Beek, have all earned 1.3 billion views on their YouTube page since forming as a collective creative group back in 2010.
