The Brian Setzer Orchestra, fronted by three-time Grammy Award-winner Brian Setzer, brings its Christmas Rocks 10th Anniversary Tour to the historic Celebrity Theatre at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 17th. Presented by Danny Zelisko Presents, special guest Firebird opens the show.

Cool cat Brian Setzer has scored chart-topping hits throughout his decorated 30-year career as founder/leader of the Stray Cats, his 18-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra and as a solo artist. His December concert will include Setzer’s legendary guitar magic on hits such as “Rock This Town,” “(She’s) Sexy +17,” “Stray Cat Strut,” “Jump, Jive and Wail” and lots more, as well as his re-imagined and acclaimed holiday classics.

The three-time Grammy-award-winner 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).

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.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets, $60 and $75, are going fast! To purchase tickets, head to Celebrity Theatre's Box Office, visit www.celebritytheatre.com, or call 602-267-1600 ext.1. All tickets are subject to a surcharge. Celebrity Theatre is located at 440 N. 32nd St., in Phoenix.
