Rush announces tour dates

Filed under: Music,News — Tom @ 7:43 am

Ahead of the release of their 18th full-length album (19th if you include the Feedback EP), Rush today released the full lineup of tour dates for their upcoming summer tour. The official Rush site has been updated with the information and links to pages to buy tickets, but the most important thing to know for fans is that pre-sale tickets go on sale tomorrow, March 27, at 10 am local time.

Musictoday, who is handling the ticket pre-sales, is also holding a contest wherein the winner could win a hard-bound copy of the tour-book collection that the band put out not too long ago, but it would also be signed by the band, and they would also get to meet the band when they came to their town. The page claims you enter if you purchase the CD or CD/shirt combo with tickets, but we all know that’s illegal, so be sure and read the “How to enter” legal mumbo-jumbo for the “no purchase necessary” part (there’s no saying they have to make it as easy as they did for those ordering the CDs and shirts from them, of course.)

So on to the exciting part, the dates (borrowed with no shame from the effervescent Rushisaband.com):
