Bachman Cummings are together again and coming to the Rosemont Theatre.

Music legends and songwriters Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings announced today a US reunion tour entitled, Together Again, Live in Concert. Bachman and Cummings return to the stage for this reunion tour for the first time in more than a decade. Together Again, Live In Concert will celebrate the music of The Guess Who, Bachman Turner Overdrive and Burton Cummings.

Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings have written some of the greatest songs of the last 50 years. Together theirs is undoubtedly the Great Canadian and US Songbook.

These Eyes, Laughing, Undun, No Time, American Woman, No Sugar Tonight, Hand Me Down World, Share The Land, Albert Flasher, Follow Your Daughter Home, Glamour Boy, Star Baby, Clap For The Wolfman, Let It Ride, Takin’ Care Of Business, You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet, Hey You, Looking Out For #1, Stand Tall, I’m Scared, My Own Way To Rock, Break It To Them Gently, Fine State of Affairs, You Saved My Soul – and that’s only some of the dozens of gold and platinum hits between them.

To coincide with the reunion tour Together Again, Live In Concert, Sony Music Entertainment will release a limited edition Bachman Cummings box set in June 2020. The Bachman Cummings Collection includes five Guess Who albums from the formative 1969-1971 period—including; Canned Wheat, American Woman, and Share the Land—alongside material from both Bachman Turner Overdrive and Burton Cummings. This 7CD or 7LP set will also include an expanded booklet of rare and never published publicity, studio, and master tape photographs as well as detailed label copy and notes. Both LP and CD boxes will be available to pre-order soon.

Stateside, The Guess Who amassed three Billboard 200 Top 20 albums, five Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 singles, and six RIAA Gold records. In 1970, American Woman became a rock anthem claiming the #1 spot on Billboard for three consecutive weeks, and landing at #3 on Billboard’s Year-End Hot 100.

Bachman Turner Overdrive’s brand of stripped- down meat ‘n’ potatoes hard rock earned them legions of fans worldwide, and dozens of gold and platinum records. You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet topped the charts in 27 countries and gave Randy Bachman that rarest of accomplishments: two #1 records with two different bands. ASCAP would later award Randy with the Global Impact Award for his music’s enduring international popularity. In the US, Bachman Turner Overdrive was awarded eight RIAA gold/platinum records, and made several Billboard chart appearances, including four albums on the Billboard 200 and three singles on the Billboard Hot 100.

Disbanding the Guess Who in 1975, Burton Cummings launched a dazzling solo career the following year with the million-selling single Stand Tall from his high-anticipated debut solo album produced by the one and only Richard Perry, superstar producer. As Canada’s #1 recording artist of the latter 70s, Burton enjoyed unprecedented success with a dozen hit singles – including three that charted on the Billboard Hot 100 Top 30 – as well as multiple Juno Awards, and several highly rated television specials. He also made his film debut in the 1980 movie Melanie. After a recording hiatus where he toured with The Beatles’ Ringo Starr, Burton returned with his enduringly popular solo concert series “Up Close and Alone” that yielded a live album of the same name. In 2008 Burton released his first-ever album of all original songs, Above the Ground, to unqualified acclaim.

Members of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, Canadian Broadcasters Hall of Fame, the Canadian Walk of Fame, the first ever inductees into the Prairie Music Hall of Fame, recipients of the Order of Canada, the Order of Manitoba, the Governor-General’s Performance Arts Award and several Broadcast Music Industry awards for over 1 million airplays, Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings made Canadian music international paving the way for every Canadian artist who followed.

After the phenomenal success of the much-heralded four-year Guess Who reunion, Bachman – Cummings decided in 2005 that the time was right to finally go out under their own names. “We’re the two guys who wrote and sang these songs and I think people know that and want to hear the real thing,” insists Burton Cummings. “Bachman – Cummings are out there delivering that. Not all artists are lucky enough to have that kind of staying power. As Bachman – Cummings, Randy and I are able to touch Guess Who, BTO and Cummings solo stuff. The response from audiences was even more than we could ever have hoped for.”

Bachman – Cummings starred in their own top-rated CBC television concert special First Time Around (later released on DVD) and followed that with the platinum-selling album The Bachman Cummings Songbook in 2006 marking the first ever pairing of their Guess Who, BTO and Cummings solo hits on one package. In 2007 Jukebox found the two digging through their own record collections to affectionately cover their personal favourite songs from bygone years.

“We are having more fun now,” states Randy. “There is a lot of love and respect for each other. Working together with Burton again musically is like riding a bike, easy and fun, but with everyone clapping along as we do it.”
