Rush to Play 41st Anniversary Tour Dates in 2015
Canadian rock band Rush is making plans, fans. Guitarist Alex Lifeson told Rolling Stone that the band was in the process of planning a “41st anniversary tour” to kick off in the spring of 2015. There are no specifics nailed down yet, but we’ll surely report them to you as details roll in. Rush’s last tour, supporting their most recent album, Clockwork Angels, ended in the fall of 2013. On that tour, they played a lot of deep cuts from their 1980’s discography, so it will be interesting to see what the band plans on showcasing the next time around. Perhaps tracks from their beginnings, you know—41 years ago? We’ll see. Stay tuned for more information.
Formed in 1968, Rush’s current lineup consists of bassist, keyboardist, and guitarist Geddy Lee; guitarist Alex Lifeson; and drummer and lyricist Neil Peart. They released their debut self-titled album in March of 1974, soon becoming popular for their eclectic motifs and musicianship. They’ve sold over 25 million albums in the United States alone and—fun fact—have been nominated for seven Grammys with not a single win. It’s okay for Rush, though—the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
