Alternative rock bands Live and Bush have announced the addition of new dates to their co-headlining Alt-imate tour, which now runs through October 23rd. New stops include San Diego, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Portland, Seattle, Reno, Temecula, Phoenix and Cedar Park, TX. A full list of shows is below.

The two bands are both celebrating 25 years since the release of landmark albums; Live’s Throwing Copper and Bush’s Sixteen Stone both came out in 1994. 

“Live and Bush, had their seminal records, and kinda broke out into the scene in a big way. I always thought about the term “alternative rock” in a good way,” Ed Kowalczyk told CDJ of the title for the tour. “What it meant for me, and what it still means for me, is that there’s an individualism and a uniqueness to your approach that is an alternative to what mainstream fare typically is or would be. And whatever that means, it could obviously be a million bands that could fall into that category. But for me, personally, it’s always been something I’ve taken a bit of pride in. Like, you know, that we came from this small town, York, Pennsylvania. We didn’t really come from a famous rock scene, like Seattle, or something like that, and we took our own path. And we’ve made the music – and continue to make the music that interests us, and is, I hope, intellectually stimulating.”

Joining Bush and Live on the Alt-imate tour are Canadian rock icons Our Lady Peace, who are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the debut album, Naveed.
