On such a special day like today, Valentine’s Day, Brian Setzer has announced a very special BSO show in order to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the big band. The event will take place at the wold famous Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA on 2nd August.
A bunch of shows have already been added and spreaded well throughout the year and already starting on Friday, 3rd February at the State Theatre in Easton, Pennsylvania.

On a recent interview with Brian Setzer for the Orange County Register, the man himself has said that Stray Cats will strut again.
Though no tour dates are annouced yet, it looks like next summer the band will go on the road to conmemorate the 35th anniversary of the release of their US debut album, “Built For Speed”.
According to this PIECE OF NEWS, Slim Jim Phantom will be heading for Australia in May!
The Phantom will visit seven cities from 12th to 21st May, starting in Wollongong and wrapping up at the “Blues On Broadbeach Festival” in Gold Coast.
We start the year showing off the set lists of the last two shows performed by Brian Setzer this year, courtesy of our friend Hans-J. The one on the left corresponds to the Rockabilly Riot show and the the on on the right, to the BSO gig. Both shows happened on the 30th and 31st last month at The Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach (San Diego), California.
As our “reporter” has told us, “Seven Nights To Rock” was not peformed on the first night and “Rock This Town” was the only song played during the encores of the second night.
I have just cleared the News archive, since all the set lists, past shows and releases are under the correspondant categories, so no need to saturate the page with old stuff. Now, it is time to concentrate on the present.
According to this PIECE OF NEWS, Slim Jim has recorded a song under the title of “Brian’s Song”, in memory of The Beatles’ manger, Brian Epstein.
New information has been posted HERE and thhe album will soon see the light. However, it seems that “Brian’s Song” has developed a new name. Just wait and see!
Edit: As of today, 1 January 2017, there is no clear release date. However, I posted on The Glorious’ Facebook page and they have said that they intend to release the album later this year.
Well, well, well… another year has gone by and I certainly hope for big things to happen in 2017.
THIS IS WHAT 2016 HAS LEFT US:
– Stray Cats: it looks like the band will join forces to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their US album, “Built For Speed”. This is what Brian Setzer told to the Orange County Register on a recent interview.
