Rush adds more stops to "Clockwork Angels" trek
Canadian prog-rockers Rush have further filled out their latest North American run on their "Clockwork Angels" trek, adding dates through early August.
The iconic trio, comprised of guitarist Alex Lifeson, singer/bassist/keyboardist Geddy Lee and drummer Neil Peart, will make stops in another 19 major markets, all of which have been tacked onto their previously announced itinerary. The entire road trip gets started April 23 in Austin, TX, and is now comprised of 24 performances that extend through an Aug. 4 show in Kansas City, MO.
Tickets for most of the newly announced gigs go on sale Feb. 22 via Ticketmaster and Live Nation.
Rush released "Clockwork Angels," the band's 20th studio album, last June via Roadrunner Records. The 12-track set topped the Canadian charts and entered The Billboard 200 at No. 2, selling more than 104,000 units domestically. The new effort's chart debut matches that of their platinum-selling 1993 release, "Counterparts," which also landed at No. 2.
Late last year, Rush took home two awards at London's Classic Rock Awards: Band of the Year and Album of the Year. The trio will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Los Angeles April 18.
