UPDATE - 2/2@11:39AM: The interview is now over, the big revelation being that Alex stated that the 2011 setlist will be identical to the 2010 tour:

... We've decided to do exactly the same set that we were doing last year. We talked about changing out some stuff. Certainly we wouldn't add any other new stuff because we haven't really developed it yet beyond sort of that first stage of writing and arranging. But we thought it best to keep the show as it is. ....

Alex also made reference to the upcoming re-release of their back catalog that we've been hearing about since last year. He specifically mentioned that the Moving Pictures re-release would be in 5.1.

Alex Lifeson will be a guest on UK digital radio station Planet Rock today at 4PM (11AM EST) - about 10 minutes from the time of this post. From the Planet Rock website:

Rush's Alex Lifeson will be on the phone with Darren at about 4pm today.

Alex will be speaking about the forthcoming tour, and about what you can expect from the shows.

The band return to the UK after nearly four years for their Time Machine Tour. Each show on the tour will see the band perform their Moving Pictures in its entirety as well as some other new and classic material.
