Rush Time Machine TourAfter several months of rumors and semi-confirmations, Chilean newspaper El Mercurio is reporting (thanks Julio) that Rush is now officially confirmed to play the National Stadium in Santiago, Chile on October 17th as part of the South American leg of the Time Machine Tour. The article states that tickets will go on pre-sale through Ticketmaster Chile this coming Sunday, August 15th with regular ticket sales kicking off the following week. You can read a Google translation of the article at this link. I expect that will be making an announcement regarding the date in the next couple of days. Just last week announced that the band would be playing at the Desarrollo al Rio in Buenos Aires, Argentina on Friday October 15th. They'll also be playing 2 dates in Brazil; Sao Paulo on October 8th at Morumbi Stadium and Rio de Janeiro on October 10th at Praca da Apoteose, bringing the total number of South American tour dates up to 4.
