Holiday-themed bad musical news keeps rolling in. Brian Setzer has been forced to cancel the entirety of his 16th annual Christmas Rocks tour – which featured an Orlando date on Nov. 29, "Black Friday" – on doctor's orders, due to a severe case of tinnitus.

There will be no rescheduled dates for this year.
