Just as we had been anticipating for a few weeks now, Rush has filled their July 10th date on the 2013 leg of the Clockwork Angels tour with a planned appearance at the Festival d'été de Québec (Quebec City Summer Festival). The band also played this same Festival back in the Summer of 2010. Tickets for the festival go on sale tomorrow, March 16 via From the announcement:

... Rush is bringing their epic Clockwork Angels Tour to the Festival d'été de Québec on July 10. They'll be playing the Bell Stage on the Plains of Abraham in what will be their only show in Québec. And what a show ─ this will be a huge production with projections, special effects and even the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble to add a complex layer of sound to both their new work and their rich repertoire.

Remembering the enthusiastic Festival crowds in 2010, Geddy Lee, Neil Peart and Alex Lifeson are excited to be back.

"We know that Rush will blow our many rock fans away. And because this is their only stop in the province, we expect people to be coming in from all over to see these three world-famous rock stars who are still going strong after almost 40 years", program director Louis Bellavance was proud to say. ...

This likely will be the last date added to the tour itinerary for 2013.
