Rush Revives Time Machine Tour for Spring 2011
This spring Rush, the progressive rockers from Canada, will be reviving the “Time Machine” tour. They will focus on markets in North America that the group missed during the trek last summer.
The tour set lists will feature Rush performing their album from 1981 “Moving Pictures” in its entirety. They performed it this summer as well. They will also be playing other favorites.
The dates for North America currently are scheduled to launch in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on March 30. Additional performances have been confirmed to April 22. According to Rush’s website, additional shows in North America are being planned for June, including visits to Los Angeles, Vancouver, Austin and New Orleans.
For each ticket sold the band is donating $1 to benefit various charities working on Haiti relief efforts, including the organization Doctors Without Borders. In addition, part of the proceeds for the band will be donated once the tour is over.
Rush is working on their new album called “Clockwork Angeles.” There has been no release date announced yet. In June the band released a new single called “Caravan.” The B-side is “BU2B.”
