Tour rumors; tickets on sale March 24th, billed as farewell tour?!

UPDATE - 3/2@1:45PM: Debunked! JordanRud over at Counterparts called Anthem. Not true. No farewell tour. Whew. This is why it's called a rumor.

These latest tour rumors come from the ever well-connected Power Windows over at the Counterparts site. There's good and bad news. Here's what he posted:

Just talked to a friend of mine who owns a record store here in Denver, and he said that his Ticketmaster rep told him that Rush tickets are going on sale Mar 24th, which means that the complete tourdates should be available soon.

The bad news is that the Ticketmaster rep told him that it is in fact being billed as the farewell tour....

Nothing official has been said yet of course...

So there you have it. Power Windows doesn't kid around (unless it's April Fool's Day) about stuff like this so I at least believe that this is exactly what his contact told him. Whether it's true or not, time will tell. And if the farewell thing is indeed true, then my feeling is that they'd continue recording new material but just not tour anymore. I'm sure you all have a lot to say too... so fire away!
