Buckcherry to Play Day 1 of Q101 Block Party
By Randy J. Klodz
Following a long-standing hiatus, hard-rock band Buckcherry makes its rocking
return to Chicago as part of Day 1 of the Q101 Block Party at Charter One
Pavilion on June 15 in support of hard-rock heavyweights Godsmack.
Buckcherry—which now includes Josh Todd (vocals), Stevie D. and Keith
Nelson (guitars), Jimmy Ashhurst (bass) and Xavier Muriel (drums)—is
on tour in support of its latest album “15.”
Rock fans first got a taste of Buckcherry in 1999 when hit songs like “For
the Movies“ and “Lit Up” trampled radio waves like a torpedo.
On “15,” which hit stores in April of 2006, fans instantly gravitated toward
the raunchy, yet hard-hitting “Crazy.” Buckcherry continues to churn out hard-hitting
tracks with blues-driven grooves like “Broken Glass,” “Brooklyn,” “Next 2
You,” “Onset” and “So Far.”
Also, from “15,“ the acoustic ballad “Sorry” offers Buckcherry fans a--dare
it be said--sensitive side to the band?
Charter One Pavilion is at 1300 S. Linn White Dr. in Chicago near historic
Soldier Field. Tickets for this all-ages show are listed for $35 each with
showtime slated for 6:30 p.m. Fellow hard-rock bands Taproot and Finger Eleven
are also billed to perform. For more info on Buckcherry log on to www.buckcherry.com.
