Stray Cats Tickets
Stray Cats TicketsStray Cats began its musical career in 1979 playing at clubs in New York. It was known for using a '50s rockabilly style with an edge shaped by the band members' love of punk rock. The band released its debut album, Stray Cats, in 1981. It contained two of its best-known songs: "Rock This Town" and "Stray Cat Strut." "Rock This Town" is listed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the songs that shaped rock and roll. The members of the band have gone on to successful solo careers but periodically come together to tour as the Stray Cats. The band is celebrating a 40th reunion tour in 2019.
The Stray Cats Go AstrayWhen Brian Setzer, Lee Rocker and Slim Jim Phantom first played together as the Stray Cats, the members' unique sound brought packed houses. Soon, the band caught the attention of other performers such as Robert Plant and Mick Jagger. The success of the first album brought several opportunities for the young musicians leading to the band's first breakup in 1984. The musicians joined together again from 1986 to 1992, releasing two albums and going on several tours. They then parted ways for 12 years until they came together for a European tour in 2004 followed by reunion tours in 2007 and 2008. In 2019, Stray Cats is releasing a new album, 40, to celebrate its 40th anniversary as a band.
