The Brian Setzer Orchestra is playing the festival on Friday 25th June and will be making the entire show available for viewing as it happens online via a live webcast.

The show begins at 21.30 local time, which means that UK viewers should get ready at 16.30 that afternoon as the Canadian city is five hours behind GMT.

It seems that BSO are gearing up for the release of a number of live albums via Surfdog Records too. Details are scare as we type, but the label confirms that the first release will be entitled Don't Mess With A Big Band Live, a show recorded during the 2009 Japanese tour.

Simon Bradley is a guitar and especially rock guitar expert who worked for Total Guitar magazine and has in the past contributed to world-leading music and guitar titles like MusicRadar (obviously), Guitarist, Guitar World and Louder. What he doesn't know about Brian May's playing and, especially, the Red Special, isn't worth knowing.
