Randy Bachman and Fred Turner, the motor, tires, and thrusters of the seminal multiplatinum rock outfit Bachman Turner Overdrive, reunite after 20 years in a newly turbo-charged music machine known as Bachman & Turner. Responsible for classic rock canticles such as “Taking Care of Business” and “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet,” Bachman & Turner have jolted stereos for decades with their working-man chops, blue-collar riffs, and vocals that elicit tears of joy from stoic bikers. Picking up where they left off, the duo will shower loyal fans with cayenne gunpowder and cloud-punching anthems as they rip through the catalogue that made them famous, along with new chuggers about love and lug nuts.
Coheading the evening’s aural autobahn, Paul Rodgers, the commander of chart-topping acts such as Bad Company, Free, and The Firm, gracefully casts his celebrated voice through the open air of the amphitheatre like a refrigerator with wings made of butter. As a treat for this special night, Blue Öyster Cult, known for megahits such as “Don’t Fear the Reaper” and “Godzilla,” starts the show by fearlessly jumping monster-truck riffs over 20 school buses filled with brimstone.
