Just checked in at BS.com and news is that the BSO will perform at the Pori Jazz Festival on July 18th.

Finland get ready to have your minds bent....BSO is going to blow you into Orbit.

You Lucky lucky Fins..........tell you what though, you deserve it.
After selling out 15,000 crowds to Stray Cats you are now being blessed with BSO.
As I say you deserve it with that kind of support.....congratulations.

Finland is the only country I can recall visiting and able to play Brian Setzer music on the juke box in several bars I visited.....BRILLIANT

Such a good new ! The BSO in Europe this summer.

Just hope to see some other dates soon. That probably means a new album could be not so far...

I doubt very much the BSO will tour Europe unless it's in festivals... otherwise, it wouldn't be profitable. Otherwise, the BSO would have toured Europe a few more times

If they are in Europe, I bet chances are they play somewhere else. Once ALL THAT people and supplies are over here, itīs easier to move around the continent.

Letīs hope Iīm not wrong....


PS: Pascualín, le acabo de pasar la informacion a mi hermano... a ver si se anima y los trae a Valencia!!!!!!!!!

The PoriJazz outdoor venue will hold app. 20 000 persons. The rumour tells that there will be no other
gigs in Finland (not confirmed), for the rest of the Europe I have no clue but I sure do hope they will more gigs.

Letīs be honest and realistic. IF the money is right, they will play in other countries. I donīt see any other issues.


Now... booking the BSO has to be NOT very cheap, having in mind the amount of mouths that need to be fed for just one band....

Of course that bringing the BSO to Europe on tour loads of money are needed but my question is... the BSO tours Japan every 1 or 2 years for, how many shows?? 6, 7 or 8 at the most, being half of them in Tokyo...
IF that's profitable, I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be profitable to tour Europe, 20-24 dates or so.... Madrid, Barcelona, Milan, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Munich, Berlin, Vienna, Copenhagen just to name a few... nonetheless, I still prefer Setzer with the Nashvillains or 68 CBS....

I bet they pay lots of money in Japan, and the gigs are sold out every night.

I know, as well as you know, that over here in Spain paying 100 bucks for a single ticket, nowadays, is out of reach for many of our fellow spanish neighbors. I would pay for my ticket, but I know of a bunch of fans that canīt afford that kind of price. And, if the BSO ever makes it to Spain, I bet you the price wonīt be much less than 100 Euros per ticket.

The tickets for the Pori-show are 68 euros and there are 4 performers before BSO, it's a sort of all dayer.

Iīm impressed with the cost of that ticket. A bargain. It is a shame is kind of far from Spain..... I rather spend the flight money in a flight to the Good OlīUSA.

From the website:




On July 15th, the Brian Setzer Orchestra will be rockin' the Heineken Music Hall before heading up to Finland for the Pori Jazz Festival. We don't anticipate adding any additional European dates this year, so here's your chance to see the BSO live in Europe for the first time in 9 years!

Stay tuned for ticket information coming soon.

July 15 @ Amsterdam, NL - Heineken Music Hall

Ahaha, no chances of putting off the trip to Malta??

BTW, Slim Jim might be playing Europe... nothing has been mentioned on his website yet but rumour has it that he might be around... can't wait to meet him again!

And BSO.... please, tour Europe a bit more!

well, iīll sure be in amsterdam. but itīs hard to get tickets for that show in germany.

so, iīll travel there and have to hope to get a ticket on the " black market "

perhaps iīll get tickets on ebay.

I'm seriously considering going. I even persuaded the Mrs to join me. Not that it took a lot of convincing, but ...well, you know... Smile

The most comfortable (and the most time-efficient) way is flying from Oslo to Helsinki. But how is the public transportation from Helsinki to Pori? According to google maps, it's a three-hour-plus drive. Is it possible to go by train? Or by bus? I've tried to check on the web, but apart from the obvious couple of words, I don't speak Finnish... tongue

Of course, I could drive all the way through Sweden, and go by ferry to Helsinki or Åbo, and have my own car. But it'll take forever... Any tips from you Finnish cats?

Thanks in advance!
