Rush Clockwork Angels tour official tour dates; Halifax and Hamilton
7:19AM EST | comments (19) |

UPDATE - 2/15@11:11AM: The Hamilton show is now listed at Ticket Master Canada, and the Halifax show listing is now posted at Evenko (Ticket Atlantic partner).

UPDATE - 2/15@10:37AM: The VIP Nation site is now correctly listing the Halifax date as July 12th.

UPDATE - 2/15@9:59AM: I've added both dates into the tour section. Both are listed at the VIP Nation website but they have the date for Halifax incorrectly listed as July 11th. The VIP Ticket package pre-sales and Music Today fan pre-sales will go on sale for both shows this coming Tuesday, February 19th at 12PM local time (note that Halifax is 1 hour ahead of EST, so that's 11AM EST). The VIP pre-sale will use a password of 2013Rush for the first 24 hours. The Music Today site does not yet have the dates listed. General ticket sales for the Hamilton show will begin next Friday, February 22nd at 10AM through Ticket Master Canada although they don't have the date listed yet. General ticket sales for the Halifax show will be handled by Ticket Atlantic and begin next Saturday, February 23rd at 10AM (9AM EST). 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.

Shortly after midnight announced details regarding 2 of the Canadian dates to be included in the Summer leg of the 2013 North American Clockwork Angels tour; a show at the Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, ON and their long-awaited return to Halifax. From

RUSH returns to Halifax and Hamilton

RUSH is excited to announce that after 26 years, they are returning to Halifax, Nova Scotia to perform as part of their Clockwork Angels Tour, on FRIDAY JULY 12 at the Halifax Metro Centre.

They are also pleased to announce a return to Hamilton, Ontario on SATURDAY, JULY 6 at Copps Coliseum.

Both shows will have a pre-sale begin Tuesday, February 19 at noon local time with tour packages password protected for you for the first 24 hours.

Password will be 2013Rush

You can also visit for the Fan Club pre-sale that begins Tuesday, February 19 at noon local time and ends Thursday, Feb 21 at 5pm local time.

For those that are American Express card users, there will also be a Front of the Line pre-sale available for the Hamilton show. Please visit for more details.

Hopefully the rest of the Summer dates will be coming soon. I'll be updating the tour section this morning with all the details.

Halifax show sold out really fast.
Should have been an outdoor concert.
The metro centre just doesn't have enough seats for the demand.

I know they do not do back to back shows but we can cross our fingers for a second show on Sunday after the Friday show.

I think they might be able to sell out a second night if it was added.

Many people who bought for the Friday concert would also attend a second night if it were offered.

#15 If you've never done VIP, do it. It's amazing. "Chance you're prepared to take" for front row... but call within 5 minutes of on sale time.

#15 It seems to be listed exactly as it was for the April 23 rd Austin showc, so if I am correct, the VIP listing is for VIP Tour Packages, which are ticket in first 15 rows plus some swag that comes later iin mail for 3255.US dollars. The Fan pre sale is for regular tickets that are offered to fans earlier than general ticket sales. Hope that helps. Good Lluck, enjoy the show. RUSH ON!!

Hey bucklemyshoe, didn't they play a summer music festival in Quebec City for the TMT? Plains of Abraham? I think this event is usually first or second week of July, maybe they'll be playing that one on their way to Halifax.

I'm a little confused about the pre-sale. Is it for the VIP Ticket package only? Or will there also be a pre-sale for regular tickets for the Halifax show?

So based on the normal touring trend, there should be two more shows on July 8th and 10th somewhere between Hamilton and Halifax. If they are keeping it north of the border before heading south possibly Ottawa Montreal.

#10 - "Air wife" made me laugh. Never heard that term before, I'm gonna have to start using that one.

#10- Wuss! At what point in time are you going to get serious about backing this band Lance.
#11 - Posted 2/15/13 @9:23AM by jupeguyowensound [contact]

#8- I've stated previously that I don't think the boys can play the CA setlist for this headlining gig at the outdoor music festival in Sweden. I think they will have to break out more of their familiar "hits".Thoughts?
#10 - Posted 2/15/13 @9:17AM by LanceTheShred [contact]

No way Jupe! 5 Rush concerts this year is max. 6 Rush concerts = AIR wife :)

#8-Expect maybe one or two changes max if any at all. I'm guessing they will stick to what they have due to the European dates. Consider this tour a bonus for fans and a blessing to boot.
