On a rainy Sunday evening at Stage AE in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Bush took center stage on November 26th, 2023, as part of their “Nowhere to Go but Everywhere” Tour. Despite the chilly weather, dedicated fans lined up eagerly, creating an anticipatory buzz that wrapped around the venue before the doors even opened.

The night kicked off with a dynamic performance by Detroit-based rockers Eva Under Fire. Lead vocalist Eva Marie immediately impressed the crowd with her remarkable vocal range, effortlessly she engaged the audience. The majority of their setlist was drawn from their latest album, Love, Drugs & Misery, released in September 2022.
