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.

Brian Setzer and his orchestra were great! The problem was with the attendees. Seats are so tight, hope you don't get a seat near three larger women that wouldn't move their food that took up two seats...I sat on a strangers thigh for first half...continued

I was looking forward to hearing Brian Seltzer at the Hollywood Bowl. The music was what I expected - a lot of high-powered energetic music. I especially was impressed with Brian's guitar work (quite the firey fingers). Unfortunately, there's...continued

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.

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

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.

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 puts on a very good show, but his style of music does not work...continued

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.

Brian Setzer and his Orchestra played with the Philharmonic and as an added bonus we saw a fireworks show at the end. He played many of his hit songs and a few fun songs from TV shows. It totally fun and the show was great.
