Over the years the Golden State of California has been famous for being the breeding ground for some of the USA’s most gifted rock and metal bands. From Sunset Strip legends Motley Crue to Orange County idols Avenged Sevenfold, the west coast of America is undoubtedly the home of rock royalty.
Now, for one night only, one of the state’s finest exports will be bringing their storming anthems to the Brighton Concorde 2 on December 7th. The incomprehensibly awesome Buckcherry will play the 600 capacity seafront venue to promote their much anticipated 6th studio album Confessions, due for release in September.
For all you coastal rockers, this is a show you will not want to miss! Buckcherry incorporate a stage presence resembling a more stylish and well-groomed Motley Crue with a selection of riffs and melodies that wouldn’t sound out of place in the KISS back catalogue. Fronted by young upstart Josh Todd, Buckcherry have taken old school classic rock and powered it into the 21st century.
Their 1999 self-titled debut received huge critical acclaim in the USA and made it seem as though the band would shoot straight to the top of the rock ladder. However their 2001 follow-up Time-Bomb couldn’t recapture that promise and in 2002 decided to go on hiatus.
To the relief of rock fans across the globe, after a 3 year absence, Buckcherry returned in 2005 with a new line-up and new album, 15. Huge rock anthems including Sorry and Everything saw Buckcherry back to their best and ready to pick up on unfinished business. Since then they have released two further albums, 2008’s Black Butterly and 2010’s All Night Long as well as having massive tours with Motley Crue, KISS and Hellyeah.
Brighton metal fans can expect a Buckcherry set list that blends old hits like Lit Up with new hits such as Wherever I Go, which featured in the hugely popular film Avengers Assemble.
This is sure to be one of the tours of the year and with Brighton being one of only two southern dates outside London, it’s a show that will surely see the Concorde packed to the rafters. So get your tickets now because you’ll want to be there when Josh Todd and co blow the roof off of the Concorde!
