Stray Cats’ Brian Setzer cancels Christmas tour due to health problem

Rockabilly legend Brian Setzer, Stray Cats leader, was diagnosed with “a severe case of tinnitus (ear ringing)” and had to cancel his Christmas tour. The musician has been touring at this time of the year for a long time with his 19-piece orchestra and was his best-selling Christmas tour to date and set to start this week.


The singer talked about the problem:

“It’s heartbreaking to disappoint my fans who have shared my Christmas seasons with me for over fifteen years. I’m truly sorry for the inconvenience this has caused all of the amazing people who make my tour happen and to my unbelievably loyal and devoted fans. I hate to let you down and I hope you’ll understand.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
