Brian Setzer Rushed to Hospital
December 15, 2009
From the Associated Press:
Three-time Grammy Award-winner Brian Setzer was rushed to an Albuquerque-area hospital after cutting short a concert.
Setzer, former frontman of the Stray Cats, had performed three Christmas-themed songs with his Brian Setzer Orchestra when he left the stage Monday night during a sold-out concert at Isleta Resort and Casino.
A publicist for Setzer didn't immediately respond to phone and e-mail messages left by The Associated Press. An announcer came on stage about 9 p.m. and announced that Setzer had been taken to an undisclosed hospital. Setzer was scheduled to perform Tuesday night in Phoenix. There was no immediate word on whether that show would go ahead.
