WHO ARE THEY: Singer Joshua Todd and guitarist Keith Nelson formed the hard rock band Buckcherry in 1995 after being introduced to one another through their tattoo artist. The band quickly established a strong following on the Los Angeles club scene and released their self-titled debut album for DreamWorks Records in 1999. The album featured the hit singles “Check Your Head” and “For the Movies.” After disbanding in 2002, Buckcherry reformed in 2005 and scored the hits “Crazy Bitch” and “Sorry.”
WHAT TO EXPECT: It’s not often that bands are able to have a second life so to speak, after having initially achieved success and then broken up, but that’s exactly what happened to Buckcherry. After splitting in 2002, the band got back together three years later and managed to score hit songs and an album right away. They’ve been consistently releasing albums and performing high-energy shows ever since. Concert-goers at the House of Blues inside Showboat Casino Hotel should expect a hard driving, in your face rock ’n roll show. Fans can expect to hear songs such as “Broken Glass,” “Porno Star,” “So Far,” “Sorry,” “Crazy Bitch,” “Next to You,” “For the Movies” and “Litup” as well as tracks from their latest release “Confessions.”
WHAT’S NEW: Buckcherry released the album “Confessions” in February 2013.
SHOW INFO: Tickets are $25 and $35, and the show begins 8 p.m. Saturday, April 5, at the House of Blues.
