The Stray Cats to play first US show in 10 years at Las Vegas rockabilly fest in April

Courtesy of MSO PRThe Stray Cats will strut into Sin City this spring for their first concert in North America in a decade. The retro rock 'n' roll trio -- singer/guitarist Brian Setzer, bassist Lee Rocker and drummer Slim Jim Phantom -- will play a headlining set on Saturday, April 21, at The Orleans during the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend event.

"There's something magic about a Stray Cats show," says Setzer in a statement. "Viva Las Vegas is the perfect event to experience that. C'mon down and Rock This Town!"

Adds Rocker, "Just a string bass, a guitar and a drum, Stray Cats are back to show 'em how it's done. 39 years after our first gigs, we're back!"

Performing on the bill with The Stray Cats will be two Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, Jerry Lee Lewis and Duane Eddy.

The Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend runs from Thursday, April 19, through Sunday, April 22, and features a variety of concerts and other activities at various venues. Other artists performing at the extravaganza include Wanda Jackson, Freddie Cannon, Los Straitjackets and dozens more.
