BUSH has announced a contest called “60 Shows * 60 Days * 60 Pairs of Tickets,” a unique promotion that will see lead vocalist Gavin Rossdale personally giving away a pair of tickets to nearly every date on the band’s upcoming spring and summer tour, including their arena dates with Nickelback, Seether and My Darkest Days.

The contest begins today, a day before the launch of BUSH’s arena tour as special guests of Nickelback at the i wireless Center in Moline, IL.

Here’s how it works: Each morning at 9am PST, Gavin will announce a particular date/city/show via his Twitter account, @gavinrossdale. Contest hopefuls must visit http://bush.promojam.com/Bush60tix and re-tweet the message from the official contest using the hash tag #Bush60tix. Gavin will then pick a winner and tweet the name at 3PM PST that same day.

The contest follows news of BUSH contributing a new song (“Into The Blue”) to the upcoming “Avengers Assemble” soundtrack, due out May 1st and sets up a busy week for the band, with the tour launch followed by an April 17th performance on the Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show, “The View,” an April 18th performance on Vh1’s “Big Morning Buzz Live,” and a much-buzzed-about April 19th show at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Following their U.S. tour, BUSH will launch a European headline and festival tour, which kicks off August 10 at Germany’s Open Air Festival and runs through September 8th.

BUSH recently released “Baby Come Home,” the second single from their acclaimed album THE SEA OF MEMORIES. The song follows the album’s blockbuster lead single, “The Sound of Winter,” which made radio history as the first self-released track ever to hit No. 1 on the Alternative Radio Chart, where it stayed for six weeks. The band teamed with premium music platform VEVO to premiere the “Baby Come Home” companion video, which can be seen here: http://vevo.ly/AbRQXM, and is currently in rotation on VH1.

VEVO debuted a rooftop live video of Bush performing “The Sound of Winter” acoustic. It gives the song a little bit more of an intimate feel. Didn’t you and your friends used to jam out on your roof back in the day? You probably didn’t look as cool as Gavin though.

Watch the video below:

Bush played a private iHeartRadio show a few weeks ago in New York City at the PC Richard & Son Theater. Two professionally shot videos from the show are available now.

When a band disappears near the peak of their fame, then reforms with a new lineup as Bush did, it’s hard to imagine that they’ll be nearly as effective as they were in their heyday. However, the bands new album “The Sea of Memories” has been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews and when it comes to live shows, they prove haven’t lost a step.

Thanks to iHeartRadio, 200 lucky fans were able to witness the bands incredible energy and their passion for playing live. Taking the stage to heavy intro music, the band launched into massive hit “Machinehead” off debut album “Sixteen Stone” much to the crowd’s delight. Bassist Corey Britz and guitarist Chris Traynor looked right at home on stage with longtime drummer Robin Goodridge and singer/guitarist Gavin Rossdale (Editor’s note: Corey joined the band in 2010 but Chris has been playing with Gavin since 2002). The unmistakable guitar riff of “The Chemicals Between Us” was next, and for a bit, one could easily forget what year it was exactly. “The Sound of Winter” from their latest album fit in perfectly among the older material, a true testament to the strength of the new record.

Gavin introduced “Everything Zen” as the song that started everything, and he was quite literally right. The first single ever released by the band, it somehow manages to still sound fresh after over 16 years. Gavin even threw in a snippet of R.E.M.’s “The One I Love” during it as tribute to the band recently announcing their breakup. At this point Corey stepped away from his bass to play keyboard on newer track “All Night Doctors”, which although being a great song, seems to slow the energy of the crowd a bit. Given that the band only had a 40 minute set, this seemed like an odd choice for the obligatory slow song, especially when big hit “Glycerine” was overlooked that night. Another new song, “The Heart of the Matter”, followed and fared much better, mainly due to it’s upbeat nature.

The band went back into their hits section to close out the show, with two more tracks from their debut album – “Little Things” and “Comedown”, and once again the dedicated crowd was singing every word along with Gavin, even overtaking him briefly during the latter song. The crowd pleaded for an encore, but it was in vain, as time did not allow for it. Gavin’s energy when performing live can’t be denied, and it’s easy to see just how much fun he has on stage, as well as how much he cares about his fans, making eye contact with us frequently, and even fist bumping a fan he recognized in the front row. On October 12th, Bush proved to everyone in attendance, that despite their long absence, they’re fully prepared to step back into the spotlight. Let’s all hope that the next album doesn’t take nearly as long as “The Sea of Memories”, as I absolutely can not wait to see them perform again.

Bush’s setlist:
1. Machinehead
2. The Chemicals Between Us
3. The Sound of Winter
4. Everything Zen (with a snippet of The One I Love)
5. All Night Doctors
6. The Heart of the Matter
7. Little Things
8. Comedown
