Robe Lighting website feature on Rush's Clockwork Angels tour; confirms 2013 North American tour?
9:54AM EST | comments (107) |

Robe Lighting on the Clockwork Angels tourRobe Lighting has published an article to their website where they discuss how their lighting equipment was used on Rush's Clockwork Angels tour. They speak with Rush lighting director Howard Ungerleider who discusses how 48 of Robe's LEDWash 600s attached to 4 triangular shaped trusses were used on the tour:

... He really loves the way that the look of the LEDWash beam can resemble the specific "silky and velvety" textures and light qualities of a PAR 64. "You would never think it was an LED source!" he affirms.

The LEDWash 600s are used heavily during a song called 'The Garden' which is highly theatrical. "They are absolutely ideal for this," states Howard, "Really just like an old style PAR" ...but a fraction of the weight and power consumption and much more versatile! ...

Rush Clockwork Angels 2012 tourBut probably the most intriguing part of the article is what is said towards the end regarding the 2013 tour:

... The tour continues in the U.S. into Spring 2013 and is then scheduled to visit Europe before returning to North America for the rest of the Summer, when it will have been on the road for a year.

If accurate, this confirms that Rush will do a run of US/Canada dates in the Spring before heading to Europe, then returning to North America for another leg in the summer. Good news! You can read the entire article at this location. Thanks to Greg N for the heads up.

#96, I think it was hotter than 85 degrees that day (9/25/10) at The Woodlands. That is, until it rained, then it was air so humid you could wring it out with your hands. Thank goodness the pavillion had those huge fans under the roof, cooling us off at least a little. It was a great show, except when poor Neil lost track during "Time Stand Still", and started playing the chorus while the other guys were still in the first bridge section. Otherwise, awesome.

But the show at the Toyota Center on Sunday was, for me, better, especially since I have many more Rush friends now. Rush on!

So cool to read these comments. Houston tiptopcenter, found a 50 ticket at the door,thanks Angels! Lights, realtime screen, pyro were perfect and so different from the floor. Front row center Sarnia 150,(early inline), got me fully hooked, so tried 18th center 125 Columbus, less intensity, shocking, so this year Bridgeport 675 2nd row center (450 on the ticket), was simply amazing. Houston work now and hope to see you riab ers one day, WestSide SkydivingHouston, RUSH shows beat a jump anytime. When you all get your good tickets, get two and I Will make it worth your time. I don't use credit cards and have been fortunate so far, such a great feeling being around like minded music fans.
Even got to RushCon, Molson Center show, 14th center 140, Orbit Room and all. Fan
since 2112, see you all soon, Angels willing!Sincerely,Smiley
