Two rock n' roll giants, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner along with the musicians of legendary band Bachman-Turner Overdrive will be touring through North Las Vegas on Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. at the Cannery Casino & Hotel located at 2121 East Craig Road.
Often referred to as the architect of Canadian rock n’ roll, there are few musicians who have penned as many anthemic rock tunes as Randy Bachman. Born in Winnipeg, Randy Bachman has become known for his talents as a guitarist, songwriter, performer and producer.
In the mid-'70s, Bachman earned his first colossal success with Winnipeg rock band The Guess Who, when their hit "American Woman" scored the No. 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.
Bachman-Turner Overdrive sold more than 30 million records, earning a staggering 120 platinum, gold and silver discs, and notching up hits in more than 20 countries. The band reached No. 1 on Billboard's singles chart with "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" and album chart “Not Fragile,” as well as scoring another handful of hits including "Taking Care of Business," "Hey You," "My Wheels Won't Turn" and "Looking Out for #1."
