Randy Bachman and Fred Turner started their career as members of Bachman Turner Overdrive (BTO) in 1972.

During their reign, the band sold more than 30 million records; earned 120 platinum, gold and silver titles; and reached the top of the Billboard charts for the song, “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet,” and the album, “Not Fragile.”

In 1977, the members of BTO split to complete their own projects. Two decades later, Bachman and Turner joined forces again to continue their legacy.

The duo staged their world premier alongside Aerosmith, Guns N’ Roses and Billy Idol in 2010 to showcase the release of their first self-titled album, “Bachman & Turner.”

The new album featured songs such as “Rock ‘N’ Roll is the Only Way Out” and “Rollin’ Along.”

The pair is now touring and performing songs from their new album as well as classic BTO hits, such as “Taking Care of Business” and “Let it Ride,” offering their legions of fans something new while taking care of some “unfinished” business.
