Buckcherry Announce Headlining Tour Celebrating 10th Anniversary of ’15’ Album
It's been 10 years since Buckcherry released their platinum-selling disc 15. Celebrating the album that saw the smash single "Crazy B--ch" dominate rock radio along with the follow-up, "Sorry," the band will be performing the record in its entirety on select dates in September and October.
Following a few non-anniversary shows in early September, the anniversary trek will kick off on Sept. 9 in Las Vegas. Candlebox and Sons of Texas will provide support for Buckcherry on all of the anniversary shows, save for the first gig in Vegas. For now, the trek is slated to end on Oct. 4 in Anaheim, Calif., but the band promises more stops will be announced in the near future.
Guitarist Keith Nelson commented on the upcoming shows, stating, "15... We named it that because we recorded it in 15 days. I'm proud of every record we've done, but 15 is special. We had nothing to lose and the world to gain. We bet on ourselves and won. It was a 'thank you' and a 'f--k you' at the same time. And it still is. I can't wait to perform this record in its entirety for its 10th anniversary!"
Echoing these sentiments, singer Josh Todd added, "15 was a very special moment in time for this band. A lot of people told us what we 'couldn't do' and all we collectively thought about is what we 'could do' and how big it would be. Success is the best revenge and that is why we are bringing this entire record to the stage to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of 15, one of the coolest rock 'n' roll comeback stories of all time."
To coincide with the tour, Buckcherry will be re-releasing 15 as a deluxe edition CD and, for the first time ever, a vinyl edition as well. The band has launched a PledgeMusic page with a variety of bundle options to choose from for the commemorative release.
Buckcherry entered a hiatus in 2002, regrouping three years later as Nelson and Todd reactivated the band and brought three new members into the fold. 15 was their first record back, eventually reaching platinum status, a first for the hard rock outfit.
