Just announced: 103.3 "The Edge" presents Bush with special guests Tuesday, Aug. 2, at The Rapids Theatre in Niagara Falls. Doors for the 7 p.m., 18-and-older show are at 6 p.m. Tickets are $34.50 advance or $40 day of show, with a $200 meet-and-greet VIP and $250 side stage VIP. Tickets go on sale at noon Friday, April 29.

Over the course of a remarkable career, top '90s alternative rock group Bush has sold close to 20 million records in the U.S. and Canada alone. Bush has compiled an amazing string of 18 consecutive top 40 hit singles on the modern rock and mainstream rock charts, including 11 that hit the top five and six of which shot to No. 1: "Comedown," "Glycerine," "Machinehead," "Swallowed," "The Chemicals Between Us" and "The Sound of Winter."

Led by vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Gavin Rossdale, Bush's most recent release was 2014's "Man On The Run," recorded with Grammy-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Mastodon, Deftones). That followed "comeback album" "The Sea of Memories," their first release in 10 years. Hailed by Rolling Stone as a three-star "vital viva-la-grunge manifesto," the album saw Bush return to the top of the charts in grand style, as lead single "The Sound of Winter" made rock radio history by becoming the first self-released song ever to hit No. 1 at alternative rock radio (where it stayed for six consecutive weeks). Bush is currently in pre-production for a new studio album.
