Bush & Live announce ‘The ALT-IMATE Tour’

English rock group Bush and PA rockers Live have confirmed ‘The ALT-IMATE Tour,’ an extensive co-headline North American summer run that will see both bands performing their classic 1994 LPs, Sixteen Stone and Throwing Copper, respectively, in full at every stop. Our Lady Peace will provide opening support on the June through September trek.

“We are thrilled to be touring this summer with LIVE,” says Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale in a press release. “The wealth and depth of songs from both bands should provide a great night of music. Looking forward to seeing you all this summer.”

“Bush is a great band and Gavin is a super passionate singer and performer. I’m really looking forward to spending the summer with them,” adds Live frontman Ed Kowalczyk. “I know the fans are going to get one hell of a show.”

Speaking on Bush‘s album Sixteen Stone, Gavin states, “Sixteen Stone propelled us onto the musical landscape. Those songs have found a way into the soundtrack of people’s lives and that is the highest compliment available. We’ve continued to make music that resonates with people.”

Talking about Live‘s effort Throwing Copper, Ed comments, “It’s an amazing feeling to know that these songs still resonate so profoundly with people, and I still totally get off on celebrating this music with them. With Throwing Copper, we were taking on big things with a big sound. Love, truth, birth, death, philosophy, religion, spirituality…we were asking the perennial questions and poking around for answers with this massive and dynamic sound. It attracted people from all over the world. We were inviting them to imagine that rock and roll could be a valid forum for exploring these types of things…we built it and they came.”
