Brian Setzer Releases New Album And Gets Ready For Upcoming "Christmas Rocks! Extravaganza" Tour

New York City , New York (PressExposure) September 06, 2012 -- "Setzer [is] every inch the lightning-fingered keeper of the rockabilly flame." - Brisbane Times

"Yes, this is rock & roll how it should be done." - Rave Magazine

Three-time Grammy winner Brian Setzer releases "Rockabilly Riot! Live from the Planet" on Surfdog Records. The album captures the best songs from Setzer's "Rockabilly Riot!" tour, which included sold-out shows spanning four continents, and is filled with Brian's hits, originals and a few favorite covers. Available for purchase now, "Live from the Planet" is also offered as a limited edition (only 1,000 printed) triple-gatefold colored vinyl record.

The album is an homage to American rock n' roll and it returns him to his rockabilly roots. Setzer is a "Musician's Musician," who consistently takes chances with innovative and daring musical styles. He is widely credited with single-handedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music, rockabilly in the '80's and swing in the '90's. The band includes two stand-up bassists, two drummers, and a piano player.

Setzer will play a three-night-stint at the Hollywood Bowl beginning September 14th. For the first time ever, the 18-member Brian Setzer Orchestra will unite with the renowned 78-piece Hollywood Bowl Orchestra for an unprecedented musical event.

On November 17th, the Brian Setzer Orchestra kicks off their Christmas Rocks! Extravaganza tour. See below for a full list of tour dates.
