Rush 2013 Clockwork Angels North American tour rumor update
2:12PM EST | comments (37) |

UPDATE - 2/1@2:24PM: It looks like the Ontario show will be at the Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, but I'm not certain the date is in early August; it may instead by in early July.

UPDATE - 1/31@3:39PM: One note on the supposed Toronto date. It's possible that the show is instead in Hamilton, ON rather than Toronto. The info came from someone who heard a Y108 Rocks (107.9 in Hamilton) DJ mention it on air, and he may have misheard or the DJ may have misspoke. I'm trying to get more information if I can. That said, it definitely looks like there will be a Southern Ontario date somewhere in August.

Early last week Rush announced the official North American Clockwork Angels tour dates for the 2013 Spring leg of the tour. The Spring leg will consist of a 9-date run of US dates, kicking off in Austin, TX on April 23rd and running through May 11th in Atlantic City. Pre-sales for these dates ended last week and the general ticket sale began this past Monday. In the announcement of the Spring dates Rush also revealed several of the cities that will be included in the Summer leg, including Rush's long overdue return to Halifax! The cities on the Summer leg will include but not be limited to Hershey, Wantagh, Saratoga, Chicago, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Boston, Calgary, Vancouver, Portland, Salt Lake City, Denver, Kansas City, Halifax and Grand Rapids. They'll likely add a few more cities to this list and split up the Summer leg into a couple of stretches consisting of 10 or so dates each. Since the announcement I've received a lot of questions from readers about the Summer dates, so I thought I'd give an update on all the rumors I've heard regarding specific dates and venues. So far I've heard that Rush will play on June 28th at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, IL; on July 2nd at the Riverbend Amphitheater in Cincinnati; the Milwaukee Summerfest for a show around the 4th or 5th of July; on July 13th in Boston at the Comcast Center; on July 31st for a show at the Usana Amphitheater in Salt Lake City; and at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto in Southern Ontario sometime in August. I'm expecting that the official announcement with the Summer dates will occur within the next few weeks. For all the details on the 2013 tour be sure to check out the tour section, and for questions regarding all the various pre-sales be sure to read my guide to ticket sales and pre-sales.

No 36-so that would mean you have your silver anniversary next yr? Brill R40 and Silver anniversary that would be some celebration. Recommend 2 week plus vacation seeing as many RUSH shows as possible-did 4 in 12 days in Sept Manchester,Pittsburgh, Indianapolis & Chicago-visited DC as always wanted to but missed Jiffy Lube as in middle of nowhere.
In England lots of gigs being announced but cant book until Summer dates are out-its so annoying I wish RUSH management would just give them to us-dont need to book right away just give us the dates-we had 1 yr notice in UK.

#35, Me and my husband fortunately spent our 22nd wedding anniversary at a Time Machine show. It was the best anniversary we ever spent. Just the two of us crazy love birds, the holy trinity and 15,000 ofour closest friends. Needlesss to say the entertainment portion of the evening couldn't be beat. Anyway, it definitely was a great time,Rush fans like to do things a little differently. That's what maakess them so great.

No 32-totally agree-they should plan their wedding around RUSH tour dates!! It would have helped greatly if Rush management had announced dates all at once. they dont realise some of us dedicated people have to plan vacations etc around tour dates. I am trying to avoid 27 July as its my uncles 80th. Fortunately I can do either East or West coasts so if one clashes with that period I can do the other. As info seems to be trickling out slowly hope it all gets sorted soon. It would help if had a travel agent facility so you could work out how to fly from DC to Pittsburgh (once you booked the show)one way under $500 which I avoided thankfully in Sept-couldnt believe UNITED was so dear-no reason why anyone?

Kj, Sounds perfectly reasonable to me. Maybe you could suggest they get married at a Rush show. That way everyone will be happy. Afterall, the boys are like the "holy trinity". They are the preists of the "temples of Syrinx" .Now, let's talk about July 2 at Riverbend. I'm ready to go.

#30 - i hope your plans for catching the show on vacation work better than mine just did....was hoping to catch the show in Orlando when our family was going to be at Disney World, but just found out we have to be back home for a wedding on the 28th (DA%$^&, $%#@$ %%$$#%^!!!!!!) Do my friends NOT know they have to plan their wedding around Rush's tour schedule?????? Am I that unreasonable??!!!

#28, Has ahyone ever told you that you look like the "sausage maker" from "gershons"? I just love a man that can pull off a "monocle". HAHA. RUSH ON.

Any rumors/theories about Southern California dates? Me and Mini-Me will be pissed if they're in town during our vacation.

Michinman used to have no chance with girls like that, but now he takes a pill for that. Just kidding.... you still got no chance. Haha.
#29 - Posted 2/1/13 @8:59AM by Cajava [contact]

No doubt, Kj. Preshow meet-up is a must. Looking forward to meeting you in person! Ruuuuushhhh!!!!!!!!
