Rush tour date updates

Wed, Mar 31, 2010@9:52PM | comments removed/disabled

Now that a summer Rush tour has been essentially confirmed by both Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee, I thought I'd post an update regarding tentative/rumored tour dates. There has been some news this evening out of Albuquerque, NM where the tour is set to kickoff. The Journal Pavilion in Albuquerque has been renamed to the Hard Rock Casino presents The Pavilion according to the Albuquerque Journal and other news outlets. The Albuquerque Journal article (subscription required) states the following (thanks Cy B):

... The Pavilion, which has a 15,000-seat capacity and hosts some of the largest concerts, already has booked Brooks and Dunn, Iron Maiden, Rush, Rihanna with Ke$ha, Toby Keith and several others for this summer's concert series, which starts May 22. ...

And 96 Rock announced on the air this evening that Rush would be playing there on June 29th (thanks rushsister), which I'm guessing was not supposed to happen since there has been no official announcement from the band. Either way, the pieces of the puzzle are coming together. I've also heard a tentative date of August 9th for the Shoreline Amphitheater show, early October Florida dates at both the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach and the Tampa Ford Amphitheatre in Tampa Bay, a September date at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, and a mid-August date at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
