From a press release:

It was announced today that multi-platinum-selling British alternative rock band Bush, best known for hits like “Glycerine,” “Machinehead,” and “Everything Zen,” will play at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center on Saturday, Aug. 12 at 7 p.m. with special guests She Wants Revenge.

Tickets, which are $39.50 and $49.50, plus applicable fees, go on sale this Friday, May 26 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at, the Event Center box office (77 Sands Blvd., Bethlehem), and all Ticketmaster outlets, or by phone at 800-745-3000.

Written, recorded, and produced by vocalist/guitarist Gavin Rossdale, Bush’s seventh studio album, “Black and White Rainbows,” is the follow-up to 2014’s “Man on the Run,” arriving just prior to their current headlining tour of North America.

Among “Black and White Rainbows'” highlights is the propulsive “Dystopia,” the sweeping chorus of “Lost in You,” and “People at War,” which was written last summer in honor of World Refugee Day, followed by a premiere for the song’s companion video, which is particularly poignant given recent events.

Rossdale was lighting up TV screens this past spring with his work as a coach on “The Voice UK,” while Bush played a rip-roaring homecoming show at a sold-out Shepherds Bush Empire in March, tearing through a setlist packed with classic hits and new favorites as Rossdale once again proved why he is one of the best frontmen in rock.

To date, Bush has sold over 20 million records and had an incredible 18 Top 40 singles on the radio. Their debut album, “Sixteen Stone,” went six-times platinum, and their follow-up, “Razorblade Suitcase,” hit No. 1 on the U.S. charts.

Rossdale also found Top 40 success in the U.S. with his solo album, “Wanderlust.” In 2013, he received the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for International Achievement in Songwriting, which was presented to him by Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
