Gavin Rossdale and his band Bush stopped in Denver last week at our Ogden Theatre to support their latest album, Man On The Run. If you haven’t heard it, head over to your favorite streaming service and check it out. I’ve listened quite a bit since its release and I love how this album is very melodic, especially the single, “The Only Way Out.”
Like many of us, I have loved Bush since Sixteen Stone and in particular, “Machinehead” is one of my all-time favorite songs. You knew I would be front of the line to photograph this show – especially since I have, to my great regret, *never* seen Bush before.
They did not disappoint. It was loud and raucous at the right places as well as smooth and beautiful in others (read: “Glycerine”) – and the crowd was very into it. Sometimes, I admit, it’s almost more fun watching the fans love on the musicians than anything else. Gavin’s voice sounded a little like he was pushing it, perhaps because of our perpetual lack of humidity, but it added to that edgy sound his voice always has anyway. He was all over the stage, interacting with fans, and clearly having a blast.
P.S. I took way too many photos.
