Multi-platinum rock band BUSH have announced a headlining tour of North America, set to kick off Friday, January 30th at the Nob Hill Masonic Center in San Francisco with openers Theory Of A Dead Man and Stars In Stereo.
Limited VIP Packages including meet & greet/photo, exclusive merchandise & even the opportunity to stand side-stage for a couple of songs will be available starting Thursday at 10am local. Fans should visit BUSH's official site for more info.
Prior to the tour's launch, BUSH will perform a string of select shows in St. Louis, Detroit, Tulsa, Chicago, Nashville and Los Angeles. The latter will see them joining Linkin Park and System of a Down at the L.A. Forum for KROQ's Almost Acoustic Xmas (see itinerary below).
BUSH (vocalist/guitarist Gavin Rossdale, guitarist Chris Traynor, bassist Corey Britz and drummer Robin Goodridge) is touring in support of new album MAN ON THE RUN (Zuma Rock Records/RAL) and lead single "The Only Way Out." The band recently teamed with SHAZAM, VEVO and VH1 for the song's stunning Jesse Davey-directed video, seen here: http://smarturl.it/Bush_TOWO_Vevo.
The video follows Howard Stern's worldwide premiere of "The Only Way Out," USA Today's online premiere of "The Only Way Out," Billboard's premiere of the album's title track and Elle’s premiere of "Loneliness Is A Killer."
All three songs appear on Man On The Run, which was recorded with Grammy-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Mastodon, Deftones, Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains) at Studio 606, the Northridge, CA-based studio owned by Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.
BUSH recently teamed with Pandora for a special promotion that saw them give a special acoustic performance for fans who gave them a "thumbs up."
In addition, the band performed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", Rossdale served as a guest mentor to "Team Gwen" on this season of the hit NBC series, "The Voice" and he guest-starred on the 100th episode of “Hawaii 5-0.”
Man On The Run is the follow-up to 2011’s The Sea Of Memories, which was BUSH’s first release in 10 years. That album saw them return to the top of the charts in grand style, with lead single “The Sound of Winter” making rock radio history as the first self-released song ever
to hit No. 1 at Alternative Rock radio (where it stayed for six consecutive weeks).
Over the course of their career, BUSH has sold close to 20 million records in the U.S. and Canada alone. They’ve also compiled an amazing string of 18 consecutive Top 40 hit singles on the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts, with the latest being "The Only Way Out." Eleven of those hit the Top 5, six of which shot to No. 1: “Comedown,” “Glycerine,” “Machinehead,” “Swallowed,” “The Chemicals Between Us” and “The Sound of Winter.”
2014 marks the 20th anniversary of BUSH’s debut album Sixteen Stone, which hit No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and included the No. 1 hits “Comedown,” “Glycerine” and “Machinehead,” as well as fan favorites “Everything Zen” and “Little Things.”
