Vetran Canadian power trio Rush will perform its classic 1981 album "Moving Pictures" in full for the first time ever on its massive upcoming summer trek, dubbed "The Time Machine Tour." http://RUSH.jonesbeach.com
"Moving Pictures," originally released in 1981, Rush's most successful album. The set produced radio classics in "Tom Sawyer" and "Limelight," and has been certified quadruple platinum in the US.
Rush will likely be playing new material on the road, fruits of its ongoing recording sessions with producer Nick Raskulinecz, who co-helmed the group's most recent effort, 2007's "Snakes & Arrows," as the band moves toward completion of its 20th studio album.
"We were off for a year and a half, and now it's just pouring," guitarist Alex Lifeson said in a press statement. "Everything is totally crazy and there's not a minute left in the day. We've got these half-dozen songs, and we'll probably go in the studio and work on a couple of them and see how it goes, perhaps release something--and I say perhaps--and then we plan on being on the road."
The band played more than 100 shows during its previous tour in support of "Snakes & Arrows," grossing nearly $65 million on the trip, which launched in the summer of 2007 and concluded more than a year later.
