99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1997!
That year PLR welcomed English rockers BUSH to New Haven Coliseum. BUSH hit the road in ’97 to support their second studio album “Razorblade Suitcase,” which featured such singles as Swallowed, Greedy Fly, Bonedriven and Cold Contagious.
Joining BUSH at the Coliseum was special guest Veruca Salt.
This marked the second consecutive year BUSH came to New Haven. They played a show at the Coliseum in 1996 to support their debut album “Sixteen Stone.” They wouldn’t return to Connecticut for another 13 years (Foxwoods in 2010).
