Bush Announce Series of Fall 2016 North American Tour Dates
Veteran rockers Bush are currently in the midst of a tour (remaining dates below), but that hasn't stopped them from plotting their next move. The band has been touring heavily in support of 2014's Man on the Run and a batch of fall 2016 dates have been added to their itinerary.
The run will lean heavily on the western half of the continent, kicking things off on Oct. 27 in Regina, Saskatchewan, gradually heading west hitting the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia next before descending into the United States. From there, Washington is the next stop followed by two dates in Nevada and three in California, closing it out in San Diego on Nov. 8.
Speaking about the band's growth between 2011's The Sea of Memories and the new record, frontman Gavin Rossdale told Full Metal Jackie, "I think getting the confidence that doing Bush makes sense. And the confidence knowing that there are people out there that want Bush gave me the vibe to go forward and make a really quintessential, strong Bush record that people could relate to."
The vocalist continued, adding, "Having said that, I always want every record to be a standalone record. It can be like we never made a record before or after it that it would stand alone, and I think it does that. I like this life, I love being in Bush and I was really sad when I wasn’t in Bush so it’s nice to be able to do this record full in the knowledge that there’s a fever from the Bush army and the fans to get it done."
