Stray Cats will soon rock this town again! “This town” being Vegas, and the occasion being the perfect occasion for a little Stray Cat Strut!
Brain Setzer tweeted the announcement that he would not only be joining fellow Cats Slim Jim Phantom and Lee Rocker for the first time since 2009, but will be headlining the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend, which includes performances by Jerry Lee Lewis and Duane Eddy as well as pin-up contests, burlesque shows and “jiving” lessons.
WE’RE BRINGING IT BACK AGAIN!
Stray Cats reunite for their first North American performance in 10 years on Saturday, April 21st part of Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend!!

The gig goes down April 21 show at the Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas.
Time will tell if this is a one-off or if the Cats plan to tour and record again. Fingers crossed for the latter, because those classic licks and pompadours have never gone out of style!
