Grammy Nominated "BUSH" Coming to Rochester | Arts & Culture
Some say BUSH is the band that forged the sound of what would become to characterize an entire decade. For fans of one of the '90s most commercially successful alternative rock bands, BUSH, this year marks the Londoners' first album since reuniting in 2010. Sea of Memories will be released in September.
Just two years after forming, BUSH released the six-time platinum Sixteen Stone (1994). The album spawned two Top 40 hits, "Comedown" and "Glycerine.” Another single, "Everything Zen" also charted at No. 2 on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart., as did "Machine Head.” The band’s sophomore album, Razorblade Suitcase (1996) featured the No. 1 hit "Swallowed" and "Greedy Fly.”
BUSH’s third album, The Science of Things, departed from the grunge sound, weaving lush electronic sonic sounds with intricate lyrics. "The Chemicals Between Us" spent five weeks atop the Modern Rock Tracks. "Letting the Cables Sleep" also garnered heavy radio play. To date, BUSH has sold over 10 million albums in the US.
BUSH took home the American Music Award for Favorite Alternative Group in 1998. That same year they received a Grammy nod for "Swallowed" for Best Hard Rock Performance. Led by Gavin Rossdale, BUSH is Robin Goodridge, Chris Traynor and Corey Britz. Rossdale embarked on a solo and acting career during BUSH’s eight-year hiatus. He is married to No Doubt lead singer Gwen Stefani.
The concert is set for Monday, May 21st at Mayo Civic Center. Tickets are $39.00. For information go to http://www.mayociviccenter.com/upcoming_events/eventdetails.aspx?eventid=17877.
