If you have a chance to see Brian Setzer in concert, I highly recommend you go - he puts on a great show! I wasn't familiar with his music (other than his 2-3 big hits from his Stray Cats days), but his rockabilly & swing sound is so energetic and...continued

Our first time to the Bowl - loved every minute of it! Great music, big screens for close-up action, amazing fireworks (how do they do that in those dry hills??) We didn't allow enough time to figure out the parking and lay-out - so come...continued

Maybe it was the hot evening...but I was not very impressed with this concert. I felt it would have been better to have seen it in a smaller venue where the band and orchestra and the dancers could be more appreciated.

Even though as a RED VELVET ROPE member I feel you still could have given me better sitting! The checkers to sit you half of them did not have a clue. The performance was okay, from where I was sitting,next time I will watch it on T.V.

Amazing event! And the fireworks timed with his music was the icing on the cake. One of the best concerts at the Hollywood Bowl that I've attended.

it's always a treat to hear and see Brian and the Orchestra, but this was a breaking of new ground: Brian's Orchestra (18 pieces) mind-melds with the 80-piece-strong Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.

In other hands, chaos might have ensued, but in...continued

We parked at the LA Zoo and took the shuttle to the Hollywood Bowl for only $5 per person. It was a great alternative to the horrendous parking and traffic at the Bowl.

Brian Setzer was great-high energy, fun and extra special because of the full orchestra. The fireworks finale was great-even had a fireworks guitar! A really fun night and the Hollywood Bowl was great, as always.

and drums particularly,were simply...continued

We've been fans of his for many years and were big fans of The Stray Cats, so we knew we would love the show. But we've never seen him at the Bowl and as we've has such hot weather, it was sublime sitting in the very comfortable outdoors and the...continued
