I`m totaly with you, would be great. Don`t care where in Europe, i would go there.

But i think, it will be difficult.
A orchestra tour costs a lot of money. And somebody must pay all the flights, the hotels, the CATERING, etc..

And donīt forget, one reason of the farewell tour is to stop the touring around the world.

Only chance for europe is to buy a lot of records. Bring it back to the charts.

My personal plan is to see these great band someday in the US.

(Bring it back together...)

I don't think that's the major problem. The thing is, in Japan, Brian is like a god and will pack venues whether it's with the Cats, the BSO or the Nashvillains. Which means Japanese promoters will book him anytime he wants while in Europe, most promoters won't dare, given the astronomic costs of having the BSO over here (as mentioned above: musicians, flights, hotels...). Or they would have to ask like 100 euros for a ticket and not many people will go.

I think.

That said, I'm with you. I hope they do it and would definitely go!

BSO in Europe?

Not a prayer,I'm afraid.
Brian has already explained this one away.The cost factor and lack of ticket sales has put paid to it.
I was lucky enough to see them 2 maybe 3 times(Man,the memory is fading badly since I passed 40!)in London but can't see them ever touring here again.
Brian signed my ticket 'Rock This Town-Brian Setzer' at Shepherds Bush when I got backstage.My treasured possession.
Would dearly love to see BSO rock it up in London again but think that boat has sailed.

But if we get the BSO to Europe it should be at a time when I'm NOT on vacation like with the cats this summer Neutral
I'm sure there are some good cheap youth hostels in Munich, the Orchestra can sleep there and Brian can live at my place for a few days.
I have a lot of experience with this since a friend from the USA has been living here for 2 months and at the same time a japanese friend of my sister also lived here, so we're kind of used to that now^^

Ben,
the ticket sales are fantastic....for Stray Cats.
The Orchestra is a TOTALLY different thing.I know many Rockabillies that don't dig the Orchestra sound.
Remember those of us here on the forum are diehards.We love almost anything Brian touches.My dearest wish is to see Brian conquer the world with his Rockin' style and get the respect and rewards that he deserves.
Hell,I'm not saying he ain't done bad thus far by the way.What I mean is global recognition as in if you walked down any street in the world and asked,they would know who Brian Setzer is.
Even at their peak following The Dirty Boogie album with TV and radio play,the BSO gig at the Royal Albert Hall was cancelled due to (alleged) poor ticket sales.
The US has embraced the Big Band sound but Europe has sadly not.
The difference with Stray Cats is they had such huge stardom in the '80's that they retain affection even from outside the Rockabilly scene.They are rightly worshipped by such as myself as the second coming almost(in a Rockabilly sense)and are as such a revered act which will ALWAYS sell tickets.
Please don't take this the wrong way.I love the Orchestra(WBNO excepted),it was truly an inspired concept and I ain't knocking it.I'm just a realist who has listened to Brian's own words on the subject.
Regards
Steve

For a fact I know that if BSO hits Europe, in Holland there 3 different venues that will book them.Germany will be sold out, Finland also,
BSO is populair in Spain and France.
For Stray Cats fame, alot of people that will attent on the coming tour will also go to see BSO.AND not so important,the euro against the dollar.....
Last time BSO hits Holland 2 times, both where sold out in a day!!

I totaly agree. The last 2 shows of BSO in the netherlands sold out. The same with shows like 68 comeback special, Brian setzer trio and the nashvillians. This year it will be the second time in a row the cats play our country twice with sold out shows. I obviously have no idea how much the BSO cost to book but is the difference with the cats so big? (as I'm thinking about it, I would love to know..) I really think a BSO show would sell out immediately here. Even in a venue like the Bijlmer Beer shack..

Hey Fluke...

The Bijlmer Beer Shack???!!! Luckily I'll be going to Paradiso. Lots more "good vibes" than in HMH. But that's just my opinion.

If you ask me, BSO is more than welcome in the Netherlands. Indeed 3 (or more?) venues are sure to book them immediatly. And I'll be seeing all three of them...

Ok,sounds like there are places BSO would indeed sell out around Europe and I never said they wouldn't.But are they big enough venues for Brian to actually make money on?This is the point I was making.The cost of a BSO tour is immense and Brian (or any other artists) obviously makes tour decisions based on financial prudence.Add to that Brian's stated reluctance for further touring and the reality is that we really need to make the most of this current tour.

Excited the Cats are coming my way but sad at the prospect of it being the last time.

No offense to all you fine upstanding Europeans but I think if anyone gets the BSO next year it's got to be the U.S. We got hosed on the Stray Cats tour this year and the Christmas tour was announced and canceled.

That's funny - the fans thinking the decision about where to tour is all about fairness and taking turns. I think fiscal responsibility enters into it as well. Brian can do whatever he wants at this stage in the game. It sounds like the Netherlands, perhaps even Finland would be a sure sellout for the BSO. Would that be enough for an entire European tour? It seems the European fans are mad for the rockabilly, but the BSO might not be so well received among the fickle and steadfast rockabilly crowds in the UK, among whom the ticket sales were sluggish nearly a decade ago - and that was on the heels of the worldwide success of the Dirty Boogie. Something tells me Wolfgang wouldn't sell any more seats than the Dirty Boogie did.

Maybe a decade later, with the internet bringing more and more fans together, building Brian's fanbase each day, it would go over better. Whereas Lee, Jim, and Brian can sell out club dates and smaller theatres individually, the BSO would need to sell a lot more tickets in larger venues at EVERY date for the tour to be a success. I think we would need to hear from more from a larger number of European fans around here before such an undertaking would be considered. Right now, we're getting the same 3 or 4 people carrying on about it. Understandably, the focus is where it should be right now - on Stray Cats. But the board was practically invaded by Australians 6 months ago, and before long, a Stray Cats Australian tour not only appeared, but is selling out everywhere.

Show the BSO similar enthusiasm across the EU, and perhaps it will come to pass. You might want to wait for the Stray Cats tour to wrap up first, though.

I said it would be a sure sellout - I didn't say The Brian would actually show up!
