Rush fills out "Clockwork Angels" trek across North America
Canadian prog-rockers Rush have added a couple more performances to their in-progress "Clockwork Angels" run through North America.
Since last check, three new shows are on the schedule -- July 8 in Ottawa, Ontario; July 10 in Quebec City, Quebec; and a second night (7/14) in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The iconic trio, comprised of guitarist Alex Lifeson, singer/bassist/keyboardist Geddy Lee and drummer Neil Peart, continue with a June 25 performance in Saratoga, NY, followed by another 14 concerts. The domestic leg wraps up Aug. 4 in Kansas City, MO.
Rush unveiled "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. In April, the trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Los Angeles.
