Attending this concert was payback for me dragging my wife to KMFDM a few weeks ago. I recognize and like some of the songs but wouldn't characterize myself as a Bush fan. I like that they extended several parts of songs and at least went to the effort of making the songs somewhat different than their studio counterparts, something I wish more bands would do. The band played well and got all the hits in, although a Beatles cover was kind of WTF for me. Gavin Rossdale was happy to pander to the ladies throughout the show, popping up in all corners of the venue and the crowd during one song and giving the ladies a little hands on time. It seriously detracted from the song and made it kind of a sideshow.
My wife is a huge Bush fan and loved the show though so I guess if you like them, go as you won't be disappointed. Or you could be lazy and watch HDNet Sunday night where they will be live from Portland.

The skydiving company who made my dvd from my 1st skydive over the north shore of Hawaii used Bush's song Float as the soundtrack to my jump. That song always takes me back to the most religious moment I've ever had and will always be a favorite.

It does bother me that they don't play that song live very often. It's definitely one of their best songs to me but I may be biased.

Bush isn't one of my favorite bands but they do have a lot of good songs and I'd like to catch them live one day.
