Bachman-Turner Overdrive returns as Bachman & Turner with album/tour
I was a big fan of Bachman-Turner Overdrive back in that other century. The Winnipeg-based band (also known as BTO), sold more than seven million records back in the 1970s, and the gearheads are still listening to such tunes as Takin' Care of Business.
After 20 years, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner have reunited as Bachman & Turner, with both a new album and a tour. The self-titled studio album, Bachman & Turner (B&T), includes new rock tracks that fit alongside such classic hits as You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet.
October 2010 tour dates include the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, CA on Oct. 14; Spotlight 29 Casino in Coachella, CA on Oct. 16; and the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, CA on Oct. 17.
