Guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and 3-time Grammy award-winner Brian Setzer has announced a 12-date Fall tour coinciding with a new solo album, The Devil Always Collects, due September 15th, 2023 via Surfdog Records. The first single from the album “Black Leather Jacket”, is out now.

Marking his first live shows in over four years, the “Rockabilly Riot Tour” will kick off September 27, 2023 at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, NJ and includes stops in Nashville, TN, at the historic Ryman Auditorium, Foxwoods Casino, Cincinnati, Chicago (Waukegan) and others before wrapping in Minneapolis, which is Setzer’s adopted hometown.

For these dates, Setzer will be joined by an “international rockabilly band, Chris D’Rozario from Melbourne, Australia and Juan Laurios from Mexico City.”

Setzer adds:

I’ve had a pretty long break, and I needed it. I’m renewed and really want to play live again. I want to just get out on the road with this kick-ass little 3-piece band and start playing.

The shows will be highlighted by songs from Setzer’s 40-year career as a solo artist, leader of The Brian Setzer Orchestra and as a Stray Cat.

He adds:

I think fans can always expect that I’m going to play the hits. I also want to play some solo guitar and little things I’ve worked out by myself. I’ve never really gotten to do that, so it’s going to be something new.

The setlist will have some of the favorite covers I’m doing now. I haven’t recorded it, but I really like playing my version of ‘Georgia On My Mind.’ And then with the band, I want to play a new song ‘Girl On The Billboard’ because it tells a fun story.
