Bush presents Live in Tampa which is the concert event of 1997 but held today! While I was a big fan of Buzz Clips back in the day, I can’t see the lingering appeal of a show like this. Post COVID, I can see 90s music fans going out of their way to get outdoors to a show. But, I guess I missed the boat on Bush.
Gavin Rossdale has a great rock voice and presence. It’s just that Bush only mustered three songs that could reach across the aisle. Most of their music seemed to belong to random soundtracks. A song in a Crow sequel here or the ill-fated American Werewolf in Paris. All the while, I wish I heard anything as solid as Swallowed. But, it just never hit me right.
Bush is still touring and I guess that’s a testament to 90s rock still having a place in America. It’s just that throughout this presentation, I never felt the urge to reach out and grab more Bush music. That’s not to say that I’m not a fan of this kind of music. Hell, I’ve had Linger stuck in my head for the last 3 years.
The Blu-ray/DVD/CD combo is Cleopatra Entertainment‘s go-to packaging hat trick. While it was shot in 4K, the downgrade to 1080p still looks impressive. Plus, you get the CD of the full performance. I love these packaged experience releases.
