Bush return with a new album and three November 2011 London shows - tickets on sale Friday 5th August
Bush are that rare thing - a UK rock band whose significant commercial success is predominantly in the US. Formed after a chance meeting in London between Gavin Rossdale and Nigel Pullsford in 1992, Robin Goodridge and Dave Parsons were added to the line-up before Bush released their debut LP, 'Sixteen Stone', in 1994.
It didn't crack the UK top 40 album chart but across the pond, it was a massive hit. British bands dream for years of 'breaking America' but Bush had seemingly cracked it at the first attempt. 'Sixteen Stone' reached No 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and it sold a breathtaking six million copies.
Any notion that this was a fluke were soon dispelled by sophomore long-player, 1996's 'Razorblade Suitcase' which performed even better than the debut hitting the top of the US chart and No 4 in the UK, although it sold a paltry five million copies.
Its December 1996 stay at No 1 in the US was ended by 'Tragic Kingdom' by No Doubt, whose lead singer, one Gwen Stefani, Rossdale was to marry (in 2002). Bush broke up the same year, eventually reforming in 2010 after months (maybe years) of hints and suggestions they would.
Both Nigel Pullsford and Dave Parsons politely declined to be part of the reunion but Chris Traynor and Corey Britz were recruited to complete the four-piece. A fifth album, 'The Sea of Memories' - the first in a decade - is set for release in September and Bush are airing the new material (and much of the old) at three London homecoming dates in the autumn.
Bush return to the capital with three shows on consecutive nights in November beginning, appropriately enough, at Bush Hall on 20th, followed by the 100 Club (21st) and Cargo in Shoreditch (22nd).
We will have tickets for all three gigs when they go on sale at 9AM on Friday 5th August, priced £35. All three dates are expected to sell out quickly, so don't be booking any meetings for Friday morning.
Update: 100 Club and Cargo gigs moved!
Originally due to take place at the 100 club, the 21st November gig will now take place at Scala. The 22nd November gig (originally planned for Cargo) has now moved north to the Relentless Garage. The good news is that there are now some tickets available for both dates at face value (all three dates originally sold out shortly after going on sale).
