Bachman & Turner Confirm Two Nights At NYC's Iridium June 8-9 for Les Paul Birthday Week Celebration
Fan-Only Pre-Sale Tickets Available Today Via: http://www.facebook.com/iridiumjazzclub
After being apart for more than 20 years, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner—musicians at the heart of legendary Bachman-Turner Overdrive—will reunite for two special shows at NYC's Iridium June 8 & 9. The performances will close out a weeklong birthday celebration in honor of the late Les Paul, who performed weekly at The Iridium for more than a decade until his passing in 2009. In addition to classics like "You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet," "Takin’ Care Of Business," and "Let It Ride," which appear on Bachman & Turner's new 2CD release, 'Live at the Roseland Ballroom, NYC' (out 5/29 on Eagle Records), the band will perform two tracks that Paul personally taught to Bachman nearly 50 years ago. Fan-only pre-sale tickets are on sale now at The Iridium's Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/iridiumjazzclub
Bachman & Turner's highly anticipated return has been a global whirlwind. Their world debut occurred at the 2010 Sweden Rock Festival alongside some of their contemporaries including Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses. This summer, the band will be appearing in select markets across the U.S.
Over the course of a four-year run, Bachman-Turner Overdrive sold in excess of 30 million records, earning a staggering 120 platinum, gold and silver discs and notching hits in more than 20 countries. At The Iridium, they'll perform one 90-minute set each night.
