THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA Announces 2014 'Christmas Rocks Tour'

The annual Christmas tour from THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA has become one of the most exciting annual rockin' Christmas events on the planet. Today (6/26), the iconic guitarist, songwriter and vocalist BRIAN SETZER and his 18-piece THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA have announced the 11th annual "Christmas Rocks Tour." Dates and tour support for the 2014 tour will be revealed in the coming weeks. Pre-sale tickets for a select number of shows will be available beginning this week here: briansetzer.com/tour.

"The Christmas Tour has become an annual tradition for many people, says SETZER. "It's so enjoyable for me because not only do I get to play my own versions of holiday music, but also songs I recorded with my orchestra and the Stray Cats. I love breaking down the set in the middle and just play rockabilly music with a three-piece, which is where I started. I get to change up the set every year and it's also my favorite time of year."

3-time Grammy-award-winner, Brian Setzer is a "Musician's Musician" credited with consistently taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles, while single-handedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music (rockabilly in the '80's and swing in the '90's). Along the way he has scored chart-topping hits throughout his decorated career as founder/leader of the Stray Cats, his 18-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra, and as a solo artist.

If that wasn't enough, Setzer found tremendous success in redefining Christmas music for a generation desperately desiring something new and exciting around the holidays. The result was three best-selling holiday albums (Boogie Woogie Christmas, Dig That Crazy Christmas,Christmas Rocks!: The Best Of Collection) and an annual Christmas tour that The Los Angeles Times proclaims, "whose sheer joy is irresistible!"
