Outtakes: Bush to play ‘Five-0′ premiere
BY MIKE GORDON / firstname.lastname@example.org
The British rock band Bush will perform at next month’s Sunset on the Beach premiere of “Hawaii Five-0,” CBS announced Thursday.
The outdoor concert Sept. 13 on Queen’s Surf Beach will follow the red-carpet arrival of the show’s cast and the advance screening of the new season’s first episode.
Bush, comprising singer/guitarist Gavin Rossdale, guitarist Chris Traynor, drummer Robin Goodridge, and bassist Corey Britz, has recorded six albums since forming in the 1990s. The band landed numerous singles on the Billboard rock charts. Their second album “Razorblade Suitcase” was Billboard’s No. 1 album in 1996.
Although the band started in London, its been hugely popular in the United States, selling more than 10 million records. Bush’s albums have gone platinum multiple times.
Starting the fall TV season by giving Hawaii fans a sneak preview of “Five-0” has become a tradition for the show since it started in 2010. Each Sunset on the Beach event has attracted thousands of fans. Last year, though, CBS added a concert to the event and brought the Jonas Brothers to Hawaii for a performance.
This year follows in that vein and is part of the network’s celebration of the 100th episode of “Five-0.” The cast and crew will be shooting the 100th episode the week of Sunset on the Beach and numerous studio executives will be in the islands to mark the event.
Show stars Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park, Masi Oka, Chi McBride and Jorge Garcia will attend.
