Rush Time Machine Tour

It has been on a Huge Rush kicking this week, ever since watching that outstanding documentary on the band. (Even if you don't like their music, really there?s no way you can hate the guys in the band after seeing this movie.) So just imagine the excitement when you heard that a new edition of Guitar Hero is coming in September based on Rush's 1976 amazing epic 2112. Exclusively, the 20-minute, seven-song suite that opens the album is the focus of the game. The award-winning and much-admired documentary about RUSH, called "Rush Beyond The Lighted Stage", arrived on DVD and Blu-ray after premiering and winning the Audience Choice Award at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival this past April. The film, which traces the band's complete career from the late Sixties until now, made its TV premiere on June 26 on VH1 Classic. The band released two new tracks, "Caravan" and "BU2B", online and will return to the studio after the tour to complete its next album, titled "Clockwork Angels". RUSH received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on June 25 in Los Angeles, with the band inducted by SMASHING PUMPKINS frontman and longtime fan Billy Corgan. After years of getting pigeonholed as a band for nerdy men (a stereotype even the musicians have good-naturedly embraced), Rush has become a family experience, judging by all the fathers with young children in the spectators when the Canadian trio performed Monday at Mohegan Sun.

Billed as the "Time Machine Tour, the rocking band's two-set, 25-song performance included the entirety of Rush's 1981 album "Moving Pictures. The group embraced the time-machine concept in other ways, too, starting each set with a kooky video involving alternating versions of Rush, outrageous fake mustaches and guitarist Alex Lifeson in a fat suit. The legendary rockers Rush have found themselves on the receiving end of a lawsuit after an annoyed fan sued the band for canceling a recent performance. The class action was filed by Rush fan, Christopher Langone who took umbrage with the group?s cancellation of their Chicago show due to bad weather on July 7th. Rush, the significant Canadian p Iconic progressive rock band who first hit the heights of fame in the late 1970s and early 80s, are set to have a 20-minute song featured in the upcoming video game Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock. The seven-part opus "2112" tells the tale of a man who discovers a lost guitar hidden in a cave and attempts to bring peace to warring worlds, as the Warriors of Rock storyline is about finding a renowned guitar trapped in a cavern in order to save rock'n'roll music.

The legendary band Rush?s visit to SPAC comes just shy of a month into its Time Machine Tour, which centers on a theme of taking spectators during the band?s decades of hits in a funky ?time machine? ever-present on the stage. Since 1974, the Canadian trio has sold over 25 million albums in the United States alone and its string of consecutive gold (24) or platinum (14) studio albums places Rush third all-time behind the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. The rocking band has landed its work on both radio and the charts, with tunes like "Spirit of Radio," "Tom Sawyer," "Closer to the Heart" and "Limelight" bringing Rush mainstream exposure in the '80s. The group has also proven a consistent concert draw for decades. Don?t miss the chance to grab cheap Rush tickets as Rush?s 2010 Time Machine Tour still continuous.
