Brian Setzer Unleashes Thrilling Line-up for 'Rockabilly Riot' Australian Tour 2012 Featuring a special set with Slim Jim Phantom

Brian Setzer, rockabillys most iconic ambassador, has unleashed a brand new line-up for his upcoming Australian tour. Dubbed Brian Setzers Rockabilly Riot! this new look is an all-out assault on the rockabilly norm, an overcharged and thrilling attack of American rock n roll. Setzers line-up includes: two (yes, two!) slappin stand-up bassists each bringing some extra thump to the party; two drummers - one being none other than Stray Cat Slim Jim Phantom - and a classic boogie-woogie piano that plays so well with Setzers rockin riffs. The show will include all of Brians hits and originals, favourite covers, and a special set with Slim Jim and Brian together playing the legendary Stray Cats hits including Rock This Town, Stray Cat Strut, Runaway Boys and many more! The end of the show will be a never-before-seen all-out rockin extravaganza!! After 43 years of honing his craft, Setzer is also releasing his first all-instrumental album 'Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL!' (Surfdog Records). The album showcases Setzer's unique musical style that has made him one of the most legendary and credible artists in the industry today.
