Not seeing a lot of chat about this. OLP is opening for Bush and Live during a US tour. I believe you can pre-purchase tickets right now with the promo code: altimate

Hoping to cat h at least one show. Places I can get to don't really line up with my life schedule but you never know. I'd anticipate OLP getting 45-50 minutes. Can't go wrong with Bush. I've seen them live 4 times now and have never ever been disappointed.

I'm thinking I'm going to try and make the show in Concord,Ca. Probably buy the tix closer to the event, because Ohana Fest destroyed my wallet. Also I do not like Live. I'm indifferent to Bush but Matt says they're a good show so that's a positive.

I think it's a little weird OLP is opening. Not to say that they should be headlining. It's just that since I've been a fan of the band (2009) I can't really remember them opening for other artists on a bigger US tour like this. Is it just a matter of timing circumstances, reduced touring in general, or just not wanting to open for other acts? If playing in the states more is even a priority for the guys.

It's been a long time since they pulled the curtain on a major US tour. In 2003 they were second bill for 3 Doors Down, but Shinedown opened those shows. I think it's just a good opportunity to get out to some cities they might not get to normally, and get some exposure as well. Touring the US is normally done at a financial loss for them, so this could help soften that financial burden.

I've got tickets to the last show of the tour in Rochester Hills, MI just north of Detroit. There's a good chance I might go to a couple of other shows near me.

I'll be hitting up New Orleans, Concord, and Tuolumne. None of which are remotely close to me as I'm from Canada but OLP is my excuse to travel. Really wish they weren't just opening, but I'll take that over nothing!

Saw the KS MO Show. Show started at 7, but I exited my car at 6:58 and could hear the bank kicking the show off with Drop me in the water from the parking lot. Got to my seats before that track ended. I gotta say, I've seen OLP 3 times in the last decade, and each time Raine's vocals performance was better than the prior. I think that's impressive and uncommon. A little sad it started early, and was only a 30 minute set, but otherwise it was great. I imagine that's just the luck of being the opening act.


Drop Me in the Water - Started 2 minutes early, boo

Innocent - Notice Raine did the octave higher "One day, you're gonna stand up on your own" lyric. Last 2 shows I was at he dropped into a lower octave and basically spoke those lines. Was nice to see and hear the energy.

Superman's Dead

Somewhere Out There

Clumsy

Starseed - Steve did a cool extended intro for this. Sort of middle eastern citar sounding solo. Was really good. The band said they wanted to implement that in the original record, but didn't feel like they could do it justice. I guess having steve allows them to explore those technical influences more.

Bush and Live sounded like they haven't aged since 1994.

They've been purposely going on early to get one more song in. Glad you enjoyed the show!

Glad to hear Live still brings it. I've never seen Bush live, but Machinehead is on my personal "Get effin' PUMPED" playlist, which I used to listen to before soccer games and these days keeps me motivated while doing yard work.

That being said, can anyone tell me about when in the set Bush performs Machinehead?

My wife and I have to drive back to Savannah after the show as I have an 8am meeting Monday morning and am debating on skipping out after Live wraps up.

Bush is amazing live. I've seen them 3 times, and Gavin Rossdale performing as a solo artist once, and they are always great. It looks like, based on setlists, Machinehead is opening their set on this leg of the tour.

They played the Maps cover at all the 3 shows I caught. I'm surprised that they would play someone else's song when they are only granted enough time to play 5-6 songs. I thought surely they would choose another really popular song of theirs from the 90's based on the crowd demographic and seeing as they have several to choose from.

Wish they would have played Naveed instead of Maps. I thought that was a really weird choice! :Johnathan:

Also wanted to mention that opening on this tour is probably a wise business decision, assuming they weren't an option for headlining. Based on the crowds, I've heard a lot of good comments after OLP performed. A lot of people sounded impressed and surprised at how good OLP was. I think they are winning over a lot of new fans during this tour.

Here's my review of the last concert OLP performed on #thealtimatetour in Rochester Hills, MI (a northern suburb of Detroit) before the start of #Summersault2019 on September 10, 2019:

6:55pm EDT

1. Drop Me in the Water
2. Do you Like It
3. Innocent
4. Superman's Dead
5. Clumsy
6. Stop Making Stupid People Famous
7. Starseed - preceded by Steve Mazur's excellent guitar prelude he wrote for this song

7:30pm EDT

This was a short, but spirited performance, as other's have mentioned who saw this tour before me. OLP's set started 5 minutes earlier than was stated on the venue website. Thankfully, we were there early to witness every song as others rushed to there seats as the music began. Actual Detroiter's and other's like me who live in Detroit's surrounding suburbs and still consider ourselves Detroiter's, feel our city is the unofficial rock capital of the USA. Lot's of people from this area consider themselves rock aficionados. We feel we have somehow earned the title of best rock audiences in the USA because we have witnessed acts like Iggy Pop, Bob Seger, Grand Funk Railroad, Mitch Rider, The Stooges, MC5 and others grow up here. I've been to concerts were other artists have stated this. I've been to even different concerts where the artists are so pumped up by the energy being generated back at them by the fans from their music, it has sometimes caused longer performances or other unusual things to occur. Now I'm not saying Detroit rock fans are the guaranteed, best in the USA. I'm just saying a lot of us feel this way without stating it. Unfortunately, we have rock snobs who will ignore the opening act or talk with their friends during the opening act's performance slot. This blows my mind when fans do this. Stay out by the bar and don't ruin the band I wanted to see the most.

By now you're thinking, "what the hell does this have to do with an OLP concert review?" Well two funny things happened during OLP's last song of the night. I will tell you about them and back up one with photos. As I already said, this was a spirited OLP performance. From the first song to the last, the band was on full acceleration. There was no easing into this one! As each song ended, the cheers began to get louder and more and more people were standing and dancing as the OLP show progressed. Just before Starseed began, Raine had enough of our rock snobs! Raine grabbed his microphone from the stand and went around the stage pointing at people and telling them to stand up. This is a direct quote he made with slight annoyance in his voice. He said, "Stand up! What the hell! This is a rock concert!"

Now the entire audience was paying attention and participating! Steve launched into his solo guitar prelude he wrote for Starseed which I've really come to enjoy. Near the end of the song about 20 guys mostly dressed in black ran on to the stage and were spraying the OLP band members with muticolored Silly String. Raine and everyone else in the band was covered in the stuff as Starseed finished.The guys who rushed on stage were members of Live, Bush and their Roadies. Apparently, these three bands enjoy touring together and this was a practical joke on OLP and Steve's hometown appearance.

Here are some great photos taken by my wife. I thought I recorded 3 OLP songs on video, but I only got one. I've had my Pixel 3 XL for over a year and I still can't wrap my 57 y/o head around pushing the right buttons at the right time. At least I know how to share on this website.

Here is my recording of "Do You Like It". I know the words to most of the songs so it took everything I had in me to try and bite my tongue while recording. Unfortunately, you can here my loud, scratchy, hoarse voice a few times instead of Raine's melodic tones. Check out Duncan's leap at the 1:48 mark:

I made it to the OLP/Live/Bush show at Champlain Valley Fair in Essex Junction, VT. OLP was amazing as always, Live sucked, Bush blew me away.

anyone know of any bootlegs from this show? I would love to get the audio from OLP. They were so good, set was so short though. 28 minutes.
