Open for Gavin Rossdale at House of Blues

SHARE Open for Gavin Rossdale at House of Blues

Hey, kids. In case you didn’t know, that ruggedly handsome Brit who sometimes tags along with pop star Gwen Stefani isn’t just some boy toy. He’s Gavin Rossdale, and he headed up a pretty popular grunge-rock band in the mid ’90s called Bush. The group hit it big with albums like Sixteen Stone and Razorblade Suitcase, but mainly faded from the spotlight at the end of the decade. Rossdale’s still around, though, and starts up a solo tour soon that will hit Chicago’s House of Blues on November 5. The show will double as a benefit for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Illinois, part of Platform One Entertainment’s Dare 2 Dream series.

The concert still needs an opener, and it could be you. All you need to do is submit your songs at SonicBids by October 9, and Platform One will pick a winner. We’re guessing that covers of “Glycerine” are discouraged.
