Bush rocks Caesars Windsor

Growing up as a kid in the 90’s, many of us had CD Players on the top of our birthday and Christmas wish lists.

Our team at SWOMP was no different.

One of the first discs to be snapped into our new prized possessions were Bush’s 1994 debut album, ‘Sixteen Stone’.

Many of us slow-danced awkwardly for the first time in a dimly lit gymnasium with ‘Glycerine’ blaring through the speakers at a Grade 8 dance.

We also threw our hands up and head banged our grimy undercuts, as ‘Machine Head’ and ‘Everything Zen’ raged through the same speakers.

Our school gymnasium was transformed on Thursday night, September 14, 2023 into the 5,000-seat Colosseum at Caesars Windsor as Gavin Rossdale and his bandmates rocked the near capacity crowd.

Here are our photos from their performance:

For three decades, Bush has enjoyed a perennial presence in the rock music scene.

Theirvback-to-back smash albums, including the six-time Platinum Sixteen Stone and the triple-Platinum Razorblade Suitcase in the ‘90s, started Bush down the path of becoming one of the most commercially successful bands of the era, with over 20 million records sold and 1 billion streams.

Over their career, the band has amassed a string of 23 consecutive Top 40 hit singles on the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts, six of which hit Number One.

Accolades for Bush include a GRAMMY nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance on ’Swallowed,” a Viewer’s Choice Award win for “Glycerine” at the MTV Music Awards, and being named Favourite Alternative Group at the American Music Awards.

Their ninth full-length offering, 2022’s The Art of Survival features 12 tracks, which see Bush bucking trends, breaking ground, and besting even their most celebrated canon.
