Rush to add more North American and European tour dates

January 22, 2013

Rush will continue their current Clockwork Angels Tour with new North American and European dates and will hit a few cities the trio missed during the first trek. The next leg is set to kick off April 23rd in Austin. Tickets for the new dates in select markets will go on sale January 28th.

Following those spring dates, Rush will head to Europe then return to North America for another leg starting in June that will find them hitting cities like Hershey, Pennsylvania; Chicago; Milwaukee; Boston; Vancouver; Salt Lake City; and Denver. The band will also return to Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Halifax, Nova Scotia, for the first time in decades. That tour will continue into August, with details regarding dates and venues coming soon.

Dates scheduled so far on this website.

Last year was a banner year for Rush: Along with the release of their 20th LP, a new concept record titled, Clockwork Angels, the beloved rockers were finally voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

"We're kind of in a groove right now," frontman Geddy Lee told Rolling Stone of the band's recent good fortunes and recent touring. "We feel really good about the way we're playing. We feel like we've raised our game in terms of musicianship and our level of chops. We're also very excited about the way Clockwork Angels turned out. The fan acceptance of it has been very cool. We're happy to go out and bring it around the globe."

My first RUSH concert was this year.
Very impressed with them and the stage production. Way cool!
Got a kick watching Geddy's eyebrows go up when he hits the high notes.
They have some very serious fans.

I saw the Time Machine tour in 2011, and it was amazing. Rush is my favorite band, but unfortunately I missed the CA tour. Grand Rapids is a little bit of a hike from here, but I'm happy there will be another chance to catch the tour. It's definitely worth the drive!
