Copper Bush And Live Celebrate 25th Anniversary Of ‘Sixteen Stone’ And ‘Throwing Copper’ Albums With Co Headline Tour

Seminal rock bands LIVE and BUSH are joining forces for “The Alt-Imate Tour”, a high-powered co-headline summer run that will see these two iconic acts celebrating the 25th anniversary of their respective landmark albums “Throwing Copper” and “Sixteen Stone”. Produced by Live Nation, this hits-packed road show will hit arenas and outdoor amphitheaters in 33 cities across the country, kicking off June 6 in Mashantucket, Connecticut, with stops in Boston, Los Angeles, Atlanta and more before wrapping September 8 in Rochester, Michigan at Meadow Brook Amphitheatre.

“We are thrilled to be touring this summer with LIVE,” says BUSH frontman Gavin Rossdale. “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,” said LIVE frontman Ed Kowalczyk. “I know the fans are going to get one hell of a show.”

Released in 1994 and fueled by blockbuster No. 1 singles “Lightning Crashes”, “Selling The Drama”, “Glycerine”, “Comedown” and “Machinehead”, breakthrough albums “Throwing Copper” and “Sixteen Stone” sold more than 20 million albums combined. Both were spotlighted on Rolling Stone’s list, “1994: The 40 Best Records From Mainstream Alternative’s Greatest Year,” and remain timeless favorites, thanks to radio staples that include “Everything Zen”, “Little Things”, “I Alone” and “All Over You”.

“It’s an amazing feeling to know that these songs still resonate so profoundly with people,” says Kowalczyk. “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.”

“‘Sixteen Stone’ propelled us onto the musical landscape,” says Rossdale. “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.”
