Randy Bachman and Fred Turner, musicians at the heart of Bachman-Turner Overdrive, will be “Takin’ Care of Business” singing their greatest hits and newly released singles at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on April 30 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 14 at noon.
After reuniting for the first time in more than 20 years, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner continue to thrill fans around their world with their power-driven tunes. The Masters of Rock are back on the road with their new, full-throttle rock machine, Bachman & Turner.
The duo and their top-notch band of journeymen musicians Brent Howard, Marc LaFrance and Mick Dalla-Vee, recently released their first two singles in two decades, “Rollin’ Along,” and “Slave to the Rhythm.” Bachman & Turner’s brand new, self-titled studio album also includes the newly penned tracks “Rock and Roll Is the Only Way Out” and “Moonlight Rider,” which have a sound that seamlessly fits alongside Bachman-Turner Overdrive classics.
In the mid-‘70s, Randy Bachman earned his first colossal success with the Winnipeg rock band The Guess Who, when their hit “American Woman” scored the #1 spot on the Billboard charts, a first for any Canadian act. He soared even further with Fred Turner in Bachman-Turner Overdrive, which became a musical phenomenon with extraordinary global success. At the pinnacle of their career, the band’s distinctive brand of stripped-down, blue collar, meat ‘n’ potatoes rock headlined some of the biggest arenas in the world— from New York’s Madison Square Garden and London’s Hammersmith Odeon, to Hamburg’s Congress Centrum and the Falkoner Centret in Copenhagen.
Over the course of a four-year run, Bachman-Turner Overdrive sold in excess of 30 million records, earning a staggering 120 platinum, gold and silver discs, and notching up hits in more than 20 countries. The band reached #1 on Billboard’s singles chart with “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” and album chart with Not Fragile, as well as scoring another handful of hits including the afore-mentioned “Taking Care of Business,” “Hey You,” “My Wheels Won’t Turn” and “Looking Out for #1.”
Bachman & Turner’s highly anticipated return was met with warm accolades including the duo’s induction into the Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Hall of Fame and Randy Bachman’s Global Impact honor at the ASCAP Awards.
