Bob Mould Tickets
American musician Bob Mould is known mainly as the guitarist, songwriter and vocalist of alternative rock bands Sugar and Husker Du, from the nineties and eighties, respectively. He pursued a solo career for the first time following the breakup of Husker Du in 1988. He wrote many songs for this debut solo album and signed to the then newly founded label Virgin Records America, with whom he released Workbook in 1989. The record established Mould’s trademark guitar noise along with a strong atmospheric sound texture featuring cellos and acoustic guitars. He gained much prominence with the album since it reached the hundredth and twenty-seventh spot on Billboard 200 charts, while its single titled “See a Little Light” peaked at number four on Billboard Modern Rock Tracks. The artist has since been under the music spotlight and his songs have been played by the likes of Ryan Adams, Jon Wurster from Superchuk, Jason Narducy from Telekinesis, Margaret Cho, Dean Allen Spunt from No Age, Randy Randall, Tad Kubler and Craig Finn from The Hold Steady, Britt Daniel from the Spoon and Dave Grohl. To date, the artist has released twelve studio albums including the more recent ones like Silver Age, Life and Times, District Line Body of Song, Long Playing Grooves and Modulate; he has alongside released several live and compilation albums and some EPs and singles.

Bob Mould grew up living in many different places, including Minneapolis where he went to the Macalester College and formed the band Husker Du in the late seventies, alongside Greg Norton as bass guitarist and Grant Hart as the singer and drummer. The group first gained prominence with a string of recordings on an indie label, SST Records. They signed with Warner Bros in 1989 but were not able to find any considerable commercial success. However, they were later counted among the top sources of influence on the alternative rock sounds of the nineties including high profile groups like Pixies and Nirvana. Towards the end of the eighties the group disbanded due to conflicts over musical direction, songwriting credits and band member David Savoy’s suicide. Under these circumstances, Mould first considered going solo.
For his solo recordings, Bob Mould worked with a rhythm section comprising of Anton Feir who has been the drummer for The Feelies, and Tony Maimone, who had worked with Pere Ubu. By the nineties Mould was on his way to release his second album Black Sheets of Rain, which featured a guitar sound heavier than the previous album, and was quite reminiscent of Husker Du’s angry moments. Though the album only sold seven thousand copies, it was still spotted on number one hundred and twenty-three on Billboard 200 charts, and its hit single Too Late attained the tenth position on Billboard Modern Rock Tracks. In 1993, he contributed his song "Can’t Fight It" to the AID Benefit Album called No Alternative, which was produced by Red Hot Organization. The next year he made the track "Turning of the Tide" for a tribute album titled Beat The Retreat, to English songwriter and guitarist Richard Thompson.
Soon enough Bob Mould formed another band called Sugar along with drummer Malcolm Travis and bassist David Barbe. The band toured rigorously and released a couple of albums, a B-sides collection and an EP just before disbanding. In 1992, the album Copper Blue earned the title of Album of the Year from NME, marking Mould’s biggest commercial success with sales of almost three hundred thousand copies. Throughout his career, Mould has made many guest appearances including those for Ground Zero on their album by the same name, Golden Palominos studio offering Drunk with Passion, Throwing Muses’ Red Heaven, and the 6ths’ Hyacinth and Thistles, among others. All this made Bob Mould tickets one of the most sought after commodity over the years and remain to be the same.
