"Bush is a great band and Gavin is a super passionate singer and performer.  I'm really looking forward to spending the summer with them," said +LIVE+ frontman Ed Kowalczyk. "I know the fans are going to get one hell of a show."     "We are thrilled to be touring this summer with LIVE," says BUSH frontman Gavin Rossdale. "The wealth and depth of songs from both bands should provide a great night of music. Looking forward to seeing you all this summer."  Released in 1994 and fueled by blockbuster No. 1 singles "Lightning Crashes," "Selling The Drama," "Glycerine," "Comedown" and "Machinehead," breakthrough albums  Throwing Copper  and  Sixteen Stone  sold more than 20 million albums combined. Both were spotlighted on  Rolling Stone 's list, "1994: The 40 Best Records From Mainstream Alternative's Greatest Year," and remain timeless favorites, thanks to radio staples that include "Everything Zen," "Little Things," "I Alone" and "All Over You."  " Sixteen Stone  propelled us onto the musical landscape," says Rossdale. "Those songs have found a way into the soundtrack of people's lives and that is the highest compliment available. We've continued to make music that resonates with people."     "It's an amazing feeling to know that these songs still resonate so profoundly with people," says Kowalczyk."And I still totally get off on celebrating this music with them. With  Throwing Copper , we were taking on big things with a big sound.  Love, truth, birth, death, philosophy, religion, spirituality...we were asking the perennial questions and poking around for answers with this massive and dynamic sound. It attracted people from all over the world. We were inviting them to imagine that rock and roll could be a valid forum for exploring these types of things...we built it and they came."
