Jim brings the sounds and spirit of the season with carols, classics and original songs for this 24th tour in 2020. His signature holiday music will warm the hearts of all, as sweet familiar sounds help fans escape from the hustle and bustle and celebrate the season together.
“Christmas is so much about memories and nostalgia, so you want to take people back to this place,” said Brickman. “I love to perform live more than anything and I think the tone of my shows is such a familial and inviting type of experience that it’s really become a tradition for a lot of people, which I’m thankful for. I think, sometimes, my whole approach is I want to entertain and make people feel good. At Christmas, it’s sort of a whole different thing,” he said. “It’s important to do some songs that people are familiar with. I know, as an audience goer, I don’t want too much unfamiliar music. What makes people feel comfortable is something they know.”
Make Jim Brickman’s ‘The Magic of Christmas’ concert your new holiday tradition by gathering family, friends and loved ones to share in the magic. Celebrate the faith, love and togetherness that we value most this time of year and be a part of the joyous magic that Jim Brickman fans back every single year.
