Thumbs up Rush Announces New Tour for 2008 with New Set List!!!!!!!

If you missed Rush on their Snakes & Arrows tour, here's another chance to see them! Rush is re-touring in 2008 with a revamped set list. I was thinking last week how I wish I could see Rush again. SWEET!!!


RUSH EXTEND WORLD TOUR INTO 2008

TORONTO, ON - December 12, 2007:

After a hugely successful 2007 run, Rush are pleased to announce they will extend their Snakes & Arrows World Tour into 2008. The band will begin rehearsals in March to revamp the set list before kicking off the tour with their first ever appearance in San Juan, Puerto Rico in April.

2008 will see Rush tour in over 40 cities throughout the United States and Canada making stops in many where they haven't performed in well over a decade including: Orlando, Oklahoma City, New Orleans, Austin, Jacksonville and Winnipeg to name a few. Along the way, Rush will play new venues in Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia and Seattle and will revisit some familiar ones in Boston, Washington and Charlotte amongst others. Rush fans can look forward to a complete tour announcement in mid January. As details develop more information will be made available at www.rush.com and www.livenation.com. Complete tour itinerary will be announced in mid-January.

They would have opened their last tour here, but somebody had to go and turn Starwood Ampitheater into a parking lot.

I should really go see these guys before it's too late. One of rock's most stellar and legendary bands. "Working Man" was my "Smoke On The Water".

I know!!!!!!!!! Starwood was 5 miles from my house.
I saw sooo many good shows there. Clapton in '87, Rush,
Stryper, Van Halen,Reo Speedwagon, Journey,Kiss, Deep Purple,
Motley/Kings-X etc. Remember when you could get a "grass pass"
for $10 when kdf WAS kdf and they did the 1 for the sun???
*sigh* those were the days...

(nice to see another Ibanez guy from TN on here, we are few and far between in the land of Fender & Gibson...LOL)

I saw the Vapor Trails concert from front row center and will definitely be going to this one. I hope it's indoors. Getting in and out of Nissan Pavilion in DC / NoVA sucks.

Rush is the kind of band that, even if you aren't a fan of their music, you will enjoy the show. We were given free tickets to a show in Calgary about 4 years ago. I had to work so my wife (who isn't a Rush fan) went with her brother. She still talks about how great the show was to this day.

Yep, Rush at Red Rocks would be killer! Last time I was there was King Crimson and Tool.

Hiding the beer in the bushes, hmm, must be an old timer CO thing.

I didn't catch them this last time out as I was very un-impressed with Snakes & Arrows. Maybe I'll catch them this summer.
