I do recall mentioning some big Rush news in my last post, and here is the larger of two events I had in mind:
Rush is touring!
After a year’s vacation they’re back on the road, but this could be the last time that ever happens. The press release announcing the tour also contained this statement:
“After 40 years together and 20 gold and platinum studio albums–Rush is ready to celebrate with the most loyal fans in the world by embarking on their 21st tour, one which will most likely be their last major tour of this magnitude.”
Most likely the last major tour!? And I’m just starting to love them? Where’s the fairness in that?
But the good news is that the opportunity is here now for those interested. Some pre-sale tickets have been available already, but most normal seats are still available and will go on sale very soon.
Details from the most recent Rush newsletter:
