Official tour date announcement and pre-sale contest

Sat, Mar 24, 2007@9:15AM | comments

UPDATE - 3/25@10:07PM: I'm hearing that there will be around 60 dates announced tomorrow, with 30 or so being offered up for pre-sale on Tuesday. I would assume that these 60 dates include the European leg - which would make this tour comparable to R30 in length.

UPDATE - 3/25@11:57AM: And another one! They seem to be rolling in again. Milwaukee, WI at the Marcus Amphitheater on September 7th.

UPDATE - 3/25@11:53AM: Another Cali date; reader david informs us that Rush will play the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA on August 1st.

UPDATE - 3/24@10:24PM: It sounds like Chicago's 97.9 WLUP just announced that Rush will be at the Midwest Bank Amphitheater in Tinley Park on September 8th. Thanks to reader jeff for the heads up.

It's official now; as I reported Wednesday, Rush will announce their 2007 summer tour dates this coming Monday, March 26th. Rush revealed this information via their website late last night in addition to sending out a message to their email list. I'd also told you that pre-sales would begin March 27th and be conducted through, who now has a page up on their site where you can sign up for the pre-sale. I mentioned this yesterday, but now it seems that they also have information up regarding a contest for those who purchase pre-sale tickets and order the Snakes & Arrows cd through their site. Here are the contest details from the website:

All fans who purchase RUSH pre-sale TICKETS in addition to pre-ordering the CD OR pre-ordering the CD / tshirt combo will be entered into the Rush Snakes & Arrows Contest!!!
5 Grand Prize winners will receive a hard cover tour book comprising every Rush tour program from 1977-2004. The book will be personally autographed to the winners by the band. In addition, each of these 5 winners will receive a Meet-and-Greet opportunity for the winner and one guest in the city where tickets were purchased.

First prize winners will receive a Meet-and-Greet opportunity for the winner and one guest in the city where tickets were purchased. Every city will have one meet and greet winner!
For more information on this contest, please click here.

I can't find any other mention of this CD/t-shirt pre-order combo thing on the site, but it seems like once tickets go on pre-sale you'll be able to purchase the combo along with your tickets, which will enter you in the contest.

I've also heard that European dates will be announced on Tuesday - the day after the North American dates, with pre-sale information shortly after.
