Brian Setzer Orchestra
Gibson Amphitheatre
Universal City, CA USA
December 19, 2008


More dates are gonna be posted in the next couple of days/weeks. Stick around!

I hope a comeback to House of Blues-Chicago is made. I always make it out when performing there, always. Either way another tour? Amazing! He should take a Christmas for himself one of these days, we don't deserve all this!

sa-weeet! thanks T!!!
I'm hoping that if they decide to come back to this area, they go to a different venue than the C. Casino, or be able to negotiate a dance floor...
*keeping fingers crossed*
Very Happy

Any chance of a swing through Central Florida this time?

A girl can hope...

Please come back to DC area for the Christmas Extravaganza! It's been too long, and my kids want to go as much as I do.

Doesn't have to be DC exactly - Frederick, MD has some nice places to perform...

Yes, Glo-reee-aaah, you are correct!

Friday December 19 is the confirmed date.

Question is, will a successful 2-nite stand in 2007
result in 2 nites again in 2008?? Double the fun!

Eh. I hate the HOB but it'd still be better than the south suburban joints he been using the last couple of years. I'll travel into the city but I'm not driving to Aurora.

Sweet! I put "Foxywoods" on the calendar. I see it falls two days after the Budge-giving holiday this year. An exact repeat of last year's show would be perfectly fine with me!

ALBUQUERQUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So many good bands skip New Mexico that I thought there was little hope of the BSO hitting it twice in a row.

Thank you Brian!!

Agreed, The HOB kind of sucks unless you're close on the mainfloor. And then you have to deal with all the pushing, shoving and last minute losers who feel that they deserve to be up in front of the people who waited for hours to grab their spot. We had a couple of orange haired girls ejected from the 68CBS show for trying to muscle their way to the front right before Brian's set. As far as Chicago is concerned, I rather see Brian playing The Park West or Congress Theater. I guess it would be too much to ask to see him in a really classy joint like The Opera House or Chicago Theater.

Yeah, it's confusing. I'm from Chicago, relocating to Albuquerque by way of Costa Rica, and spent about 13 years in California.

Man i was down on the main floor for both times at HOB it was awesome, I was close, I had no pushing problems at all. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy was rougher than those crowds. Besides I don't like to go anywhere that doesnt have a standing room. I get there hours early and wait to get my ideal spot, my seat isn't dependent on how much money I have its how big of fan. And thats just something i believe in...

Most of the BSO shows I've attended (well over 25) have been general admission shows with Standing Room. There's just something about the cramped energy of the Chicago HOB floor that I don't like. The GA show at the Congress on Halloween 98 was AWESOME. So were the Summerfest shows up in Milwaukee. So GA isn't the problem, just the set up at the HOB Suspect

I'm in muncie, indiana so my options are limited. The first time I saw was the 2005 christmas tour, I must've lucked out because everyone around me was really awesome. I met people from canada and london, we all made our own little protective bubble in that area and it worked great. The canadian guy was awesome enough to give me one of brian's picks he tossed out at the end since he allready had one from a previous show. You just can't beat a show like that.

I should stress the I'm from muncie part because a cramped dive in chicago is like carnegie hall to me compared to here.

Tommy - do you know when will the Tix go on sale? Will we be able to get them before the general public like the Stray Cats? Speaking of the Cats - any news on playing in the states? Maybe they changed their minds and will play here??

Golly, I do enjoy catching Brian, the Vixen and the fellers for a night of foot-good-golly-stompin' fun! (KC, KC, KC, KC) I caught the show in Aurora this year (KC, KC, KC, KC) and it was a good 'un. I'm not real partial where I see them (KC, KC, KC, KC) as long as I can co-lect enough sodie cans to ransom off for the ducats! (Uptown Theatre, KC, KC, KC) cyclops
Chicago-bound tomorrow, KC bound in December? Question

The Park West would be great for a BSO show but they don't seem to be getting much action these days. The best BSO show I ever saw was at the Vic which is probably my favorite place to see shows. Open floor on the first floor for people who want to stand and seats in the balcony for those who want to sit but not a bad seat/spot in the house. Decent sound too.
