Grammy Award-winner Brian Setzer was unable to complete a performance in Albuquerque and was briefly hospitalized because of dehydration, high altitude sickness and vertigo. But a posting on his website says Setzer recovered quickly and will perform as scheduled Tuesday night in Phoenix. The rest of his current tour will continue as planned.

Setzer is the former frontman of the Stray Cats. He performed three Christmas-themed songs with his Brian Setzer Orchestra and then left the stage Monday night during a sold-out concert at Isleta Resort and Casino.

An announcer came on stage about 9 p.m. and said Setzer had been taken to a hospital.

Setzer's Web site did not list his age.
