Rush Announces 40th Anniversary Tour

LOS ANGELES, (CelebrityAccess) — Prog-rock legends Rush have announced that they will be taking their show on the road to mark their 40th anniversary.

The Rush: R40 Live Tour will hit 34 cities throughout North America this summer beginning May 8 in Tulsa, Okla. and finishing Aug. 1 in Los Angeles, Calif in what may be the band's last major tour.

For the tour, Rush will cover material from their extensive body of work, including their eponymously named debut, 1976's 2112, 1981's Moving Pictures, 1996's Test For Echo and 2002's Vapor Trails, as well as their latest studio album, 2012's Clockwork Angels.

As well, to mark the 40th anniversary tour, the band has released the R40 collector's boxset, including live footage spanning all four decades of the trio's career, with over two hours of unreleased material and a rare performance of the seven-part version of "2112," packaged with a 52-page hardcover book.
