Photos: Bush at The Wellmont Theatre 10.13.11

The Wellmont Theatre, Montclair, NJ, 10.13.11 – Coming back from a long hiatus, Bush brought its European version of Seattle grunge to The Wellmont Theatre.  Opening up with the iconic “Machine Head” Gavin Rossdale and company brought a rush of energy to Montclair that carried throughout the entire show.  Definitely one of my favorite shows of the year, you never would guess there was a layoff for this band.

I loved shooting this show.  Lighting was pretty good, or at least good enough to work with.  The band has killer energy on stage and I hope it shows in the photos.  The pit was only myself, another photographer and a couple of security guards, and there is rarely a pit at The Wellmont.
