From a press release:

It was announced today that multi-platinum-selling British post-grunge rock band Bush, best known for hits like “Glycerine,” “Machinehead,” “Everything Zen,” and “Comedown,” will play at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg on Wednesday, April 11 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which are $35 in advance or $38 the day of the show, go on sale this Friday, March 2 at 10 a.m. and will be available through the Sherman Theater box office (524 Main St., Stroudsburg), online at and, and all Ticketmaster outlets. VIP boxes and sky boxes are available for this show and include eight tickets (VIP box) or 12 tickets (sky box), a fruit and cheese platter, and waitstaff. To purchase box seats, call the theater at 570-420-2808.

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 2017 headlining tour of North America.

Among the highlights on “Black and White Rainbows” 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 last year 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 last 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.

Over the course of their career, Bush has sold close to 20 million records in the United States and Canada alone. Their debut album, “Sixteen Stone,” went six-times platinum, and their follow-up, “Razorblade Suitcase,” hit No. 1 on the U.S. charts. They’ve also compiled an amazing string of 18 consecutive Top 40 hit singles on the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts. 11 of those hit the Top 5, six of which shot to No. 1: “Comedown,” “Glycerine,” “Machinehead,” “Swallowed,” “The Chemicals Between Us,” and “The Sound of Winter.”

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.
