Tonight: Bush rocks Woodward Park

bushfly2012.jpg

I’ll consider tonight’s Bush concert at the Rotary Amphitheatre at Woodward Park a win for this reason alone: The band is currently touring with Nickelback, but we’re getting a Bush solo show and Nickelback will be polluting the ears of some other city.

Tonight’s show is the Birthday Bash for New Rock 104.1 and it also features Unwritten Law and local band Session. Tickets will be available at the door for $34. Gates open at 6 p.m. And seating is general admission, if you’re the type to line-up.

Don’t look at Bush as just as nostalgia act. While it’s true the band had most of its success in the 90s, the Gavin Rossdale-fronted band enjoyed a revival recently with “Baby Come Home” and the 2011 No. 1 hit, “The Sound of Winter.”
