UPDATE - 2/15@8:32AM: Donna added some clarification in a comment thread regarding her comments about additional dates potentially being added to the tour:

Regarding my comments about Rush not "snubbing" Cleveland, I am not speculating at all. According to the band's management, they really really are trying to find a way to make a Cleveland date happen. It's a matter of logistics, as I said in the podcast, but I know they are still working on it. Whether it will happen remains to be seen.

UPDATE - 2/13@8:18AM: Note that Donna was also asked about the snubbing of Cleveland, Pittsburgh and other cities on the upcoming R40 Live tour. She takes issue with the term snubbing, and hints that Rush is still working to add more dates to the tour. However, it's not clear whether she's just speculating or has inside information.

Rush discoverer and media scholar Donna Halper was a guest on the Rushcast podcast yesterday. Donna talks with host Jay Mantis about Rush, radio, baseball and Alex Lifeson's Rock Hall induction blah speech for about 45 minutes. You can listen to the podcast below or at this location.
