Rush Announces 2015 R40 Tour

Canadian legends Rush have announced a 2015 tour. From the band's recently redesigned website:

Celebrating 40 years, Rush and Live Nation confirmed that the R40 LIVE Tour will visit 34 cities throughout North America this summer beginning May 8 in Tulsa, OK and finishing August 1 in Los Angeles, CA. These not to be missed concerts will highlight four decades of the band's music. Tickets for the RUSH: R40 LIVE TOUR will go on sale starting January 30th in select markets at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

Over the course of their amazing career, Rush has lived a lifetime together, providing an influential soundtrack to many of their fans' lives. Some have been with them since the start, while others have discovered them along the way and delved into their incredible body of work.

To quote Dave Grohl from their momentous induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,

"Rush built their following the right way. No hype, no bullshit, they did it from the ground up. Their legacy is incredible and their influence undeniable."

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. Celebrate four decades of music with three incredible musicians - all in one night.


Die-hard fans have been speculating about whether Rush will play an entire album. Rush recently played all of Moving Pictures on its Time Machine Tour.

Perhaps we'll see all of Permanent Waves?
