L.A. LIVE, 777 CHICK HEARN COURT, LOS ANGELES
SATURDAY 22ND DECEMBER 2018
Being in Los Angeles at Christmas gave us the opportunity to experience the "Christmas Rocks! Tour".
Once inside, there was a section of the lobby with Brian Setzer's guitars. The public could try these and have their photos taken, but the queue for that was really long so we had to pass on that one.
The minute Brian Setzer walked on the stage, the crowd were on their feet cheering and the majority remained standing for the whole show.
The show was really fantastic, and works with the Big Band. Full on energy, high octane performance great sound, and a really up for it audience - all ingredients that produced a fabulous show. No wonder these Christmas shows sell out.
Brian Setzer sure knows how to rock and bring everyone along with him. The set was a mixture of Christmas songs, covers and Stray Cats numbers and the encore with the Nut Cracker Suite was something else which the crowd went wild about.
