The 12th annual tour will feature music from a new studio Christmas album "Rockin' Rudolph," three best-selling holiday albums and original material from Brian Setzer. “It’s always exciting to add new songs,” says Setzer about the set list. “I’m thinking about opening with 'Rockin Around the Christmas Tree.' We have never done that one before.”
Produced by Peter Collins and recorded in both Nashville, Tennessee, and Hollywood, California, the 12-track "Rockin’ Rudolph" album includes highlights such as “Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree,” “Yabba-Dabba Yuletide” and “Rockabilly Rudolph,” among other notable Christmas classic tunes. Setzer's trademark guitar work and vocal stylings are matched with The Brian Setzer Orchestra's rockin' big-band horn arrangements—an unbeatable combination.
