(TRR) – Bush have a long history as titans of alternative rock. Since their smash hit debut LP Sixteen Stone was released in 1994, the band have managed to stay relevant in rock music’s evolving landscape for over two decades. The band are still on the road supporting their latest effort Black and White Rainbows which came out just over a year ago. Last night at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA, the band delivered a fantastic performance packed with hits with support from Atlas Genius and Big Jesus.

While the band did manage to play at least one song off each of their seven studio albums, Bush pulled out pretty much every hit from their heyday. They started the party off right with “Everything Zen.” Then came the super-groovy “All My Life” which went right into their 1999 smash “The Chemicals Between Us.” Highlights from the rest of the sent included (but not limited to) “Swallowed,” “Little Things,” “Prizefighter,” and “This Is War.”

The encore was an absolute treat for the crowd. It included megahits “Machinehead,” a cover of R.E.M.’s “The One I Love,” and “Glycerine.” Bush closed out the evening with “Comedown” which saw frontman Gavin Rossdale come into the crowd and weave through a sea of fans who sang every word along with him. Although the band is in their third decade, they certainly don’t

Although the band is in their third decade, they certainly don’t act their age. The performance was tight with tons of energy, and much better than expected. Often times you can tell when a band is tired, but that’s not the case with Bush. They spared no expense on their lighting rig, either, which made the show visually captivating as well.

Throughout their career, Bush have sold approximately 20 million records in the U.S. and Canada alone. They’ve racked up 18 consecutive Top 40 hit singles on the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts. They boast six No. 1 hits – “Comedown,” Glycerine,” “Machinehead,” “Swallowed,” “The Chemicals Between Us” and “The Sound of Winter.” Using the momentum from their debut masterpiece, Bush’s sophomore effort Razorblade Suitcase debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 in 1996.
