Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Rush fan 2014 promotion
2:49PM EST | comments (17) |

Rock Hall Rush Fan Promotion!Rush was finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back on April 18th of last year at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, and the Rock Hall officially opened a 2013 inductees exhibit just prior to the induction ceremony that was up for most of the past year. The Rush portion of the exhibit included a Neil Peart snare drum, Alex Lifeson's double-neck guitar and a Geddy Lee bass along with various other items. The exhibit also included a three-screen multimedia presentation that tells the stories of the inductees. You can check out some photographs of the exhibit at the Rock Hall website. If you'll be in or near Cleveland anytime this year, I highly recommend checking out the Museum and all the great exhibits that it has to offer. Last year the Rock Hall graciously offered an exclusive discount to the Museum for RushIsABand readers, and they have reinstated the discount for this year as well. With this exclusive offer you can receive $2 off admission in addition to a 20% discount on any new membership. Simply print out this pdf file and present it at the Rock Hall box office to receive your discount. The offer runs through the end of this year. They are also offering a 10% discount on all online orders made via rockhallstore.com through September 30th by using the code FANCLUB14 at checkout.

I have never been to Cleveland, but if I did go, I would be very interested in seeing their "progressive rock" and "psychedelic rock" displays. Meanwhile, I think that someone should build the "Progressive Rock Hall Of Fame" here in Arizona, preferably no farther than 25-50 miles away from where I currently reside.

#14, I'm glad you shared your experience. I'm going to be in Cleveland next weekend and was planning on going to the R&RHoF. If there is nothing from Rush, I might pass. There are other things to see but I don't like how the Hall is run.

I've been to the NFL HoF a few times and noticed how things get moved and perhaps rotated between showcase and storage. Recently, some of that was likely due to construction but for the Rock Hall I don't know how things are done. Anyone else have any info or recent experience there?

@14--I couldve sworn I saw a pair of NEP's sticks in the big circle of sticks many moons ago....maybe that display is gone??

I took my son on a mini road trip to Pittsburgh and Cleveland over Easter weekend. We went to Pirates and Indians baseball games and then hit the RRHOF on the last day. There was not one single piece of RUSH material anywhere to be found in the whole place! Not one! Really disappointing. In fact there were many inductees for whom there was nothing to be found.

As one would expect, the overall emphasis of the place was on old time blues and 50s/60s "classic" rock. There was one display case dedicated to "Metal" which had about a dozen or so items from Maiden, Priest, Sabbath, Purple, and others which was nice to see at least an acknowledgement.

Hey first time posting a comment on this website that I have watched many years to get info on presales and show announcements thanx ed for running this site. I have been a Rush fan since I was twelve when I got Fly By Night as a birthday present from my cousin and was blown away when I first heard Anthem. Anytime I here a rush song it brings me back to a particular time in my life with great memories and much emotion. thanks Alex,Geddy and Neil for carrying us through life with music,dedication to your fans. You have never let us down.
Driving to work this morning listening to Cygnus X-1 Book II I had a revelation 2015-16 Tour call it 4114 tour ,no need to release new album ,release an epic multiparted kickass instrumental digitally to give fans a small taste of something new. 2015-16 setlist of mostly early songs Bastille day,Cygnus X-1 Book II,Passage to Bangkok,circumstances,distant early warning,Xanadu,Farewell to kings,ect. After 2015-16 tour take year off then release ep like feedback of 5 instrumental tracks to support 2018 tour. Maybe all this was just a dream . aaaaaanyway

Just rubbing ya Jim. I got nothing but love for Seattle.

Cleveland has had it's share of hard knocks. Lived there my whole childhood before joining the Military and moved right back after retiring. Had a Federal job in downtown Cleveland near that RRHoF building. It's mostly a struggling city but it still finds a way to put out a few nice recreational areas and parks.

The mistake by the lake!

Being from Cincinnati I couldn't miss a chance to insult Cleveland.
