Brian Setzer and his orchestra will head out on their 16th annual Christmas Rocks! Tour this fall. The 20-city trek will kick off November 15th in Minneapolis, MN and wrap up December 20th in Palm Desert, CA. See below for a full list of confirmed dates.
Additional shows are expected to be announced soon.
“People tell me all the time what joy I bring them over the holidays,” said Setzer in a statement. “I don’t take this for granted. People don’t say something like that unless they mean it. When we get a standing ovation at the end of the Christmas show, it means something just a little extra.”
The Brian Setzer Orchestra’s set list will feature music from the group’s three Christmas albums, Boogie Woogie Christmas, Dig That Crazy Christmas and Rockin’ Rudolph, as well as original material that spans his 40-year career.
Tickets for most dates go on sale Friday, July 26th at 10am local time.
Brian Setzer’s legendary career has led him through four critically acclaimed and successful phases from the Stray Cats, to solo albums, the Rockabilly Riot and The Brian Setzer Orchestra.
Currently, Setzer is on tour with the Stray Cats, celebrating the band’s 40th anniversary. In May the trio released a new album, aptly titled 40, and drummer Slim Jim Phantom spoke with us about the reunion. Listen here.
In between August tour dates with the Stray Cats, Setzer will perform a series of shows with Rockabilly Riot!
