Accurately dubbed the “Altimate Tour”, 90’s alternative rock powerhouse groups Live, Bush, and Our Lady Peace joined forces and brought their hits to the Concord Pavilion in Concord, CA. For Live and Bush, the tour is also a 25th Anniversary celebration of their pinnacle albums Throwing Copper and Sixteen Stone, respectively.
Collectively, these two records have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide, and boast a big chunk of the 1990’s most well-known singles.
Canada’s Our Lady Peace opened the show, fronted by singer/founder Raine Maida, and delivered tracks like “Superman’s Dead”, “Starseed”, and “Clumsy”.
Taking the middle spot for the night was Yorke, PA-generated band Līve, featuring the original lineup of Ed Kowalczyk, Chad Taylor, Chad Gracey, and Patrick Dahlheimer. The crowd-engaging setlist offered hits like “I Alone”, “Lakini’s Juice” and “All Over You”, as well as anthem “Lightning Crashes” and traditional show-stopper “White, Discussion”.
UK-based Bush, led by Gavin Rossdale, closed the evening out with a high energy rock n’ roll set, covering songs like “Everything Zen”, “Machinehead”, “Comedown”, “The Chemicals Between Us”, and the heavy new single from the John Wick 3 soundtrack, “Bullet Holes”. Bush’s performance featured much Rossdale’s stage antics, including jumps, climbing on amplifiers, singing from the audience, and even a pair of large knives.
