Powerage5 Posted April 8, 2010 Share Posted April 8, 2010 "Rush [ tickets ] will perform its classic 1981 album "Moving Pictures" in full for the first time ever on its massive upcoming summer trek, dubbed "The Time Machine Tour."The veteran Canadian power trio launches the 37-city outing June 29 in Albuquerque, NM. The trek stretches through September before wrapping Oct. 2 in West Palm Beach, FL. Dates are shown at right.Complete ticketing information, including pre-sale and general on-sale dates, is available at the band's website."Moving Pictures," originally released in 1981, is Rush's most successful album. The set produced radio classics in "Tom Sawyer" and "Limelight," and has been certified quadruple platinum in the US.Rush will likely be playing new material on the road, fruits of its ongoing recording sessions with producer Nick Raskulinecz, who co-helmed the group's most recent effort, 2007's "Snakes & Arrows," as the band moves toward completion of its 20th studio album."We were off for a year and a half, and now it's just pouring," guitarist Alex Lifeson said in a press statement. "Everything is totally crazy and there's not a minute left in the day. We've got these half-dozen songs, and we'll probably go in the studio and work on a couple of them and see how it goes, perhaps release something--and I say perhaps--and then we plan on being on the road."The band played more than 100 shows during its previous tour in support of "Snakes & Arrows," grossing nearly $65 million on the trip, which launched in the summer of 2007 and concluded more than a year later."http://www.livedaily.com/news/rush-tickets-and-tour-dates-rush-steps-into-time-machine-for-summer-trek-21876.htmlFull list of tour dates:June 201029 - Albuquerque, NM - Hard Rock Casino AlbuquerqueJuly 20101 - Kansas City, MO - Starlight Theatre2 - Milwaukee, WI - Summerfest5 - Chicago, IL - Charter One Pavilion9 - Sarnia, Ontario - Bayfest13 - Toronto, Ontario - Molson Canadian Amphitheatre15 - Quebec City, Quebec - Festival d'ete de Quebec17 - Toronto, Ontario - Air Canada Centre19 - Uncasville, CT - Mohegan Sun21 - Camden, NJ - Susquehanna Bank Center23 - Saratoga Springs, NY - Saratoga Performing Arts Center24 - Wantagh, NY - Nikon at Jones BeachAugust 20105 - Salt Lake City, UT - USANA Amphitheatre7 - Seattle, WA - White River Amphitheatre9 - San Francisco, CA - Shoreline Amphitheatre11 - Inglewood, CA - The Forum13 - Irvine, CA - Verizon Wireless Amphitheater14 - Las Vegas, NV - MGM Grand Garden Arena16 - Morrison, CO - Red Rocks Amphitheatre20 - Wichita, KS - INTRUST Bank Arena22 - St. Louis, MO - Verizon Wireless Amphitheater25 - Omaha, NE - Qwest Center27 - St. Paul, MN - Minnesota State Fair29 - Columbus, OH - Nationwide Arena31 - Allentown, PA - Allentown FairSeptember 20102 - Syracuse, NY - New York State Fair3 - Holmdel, NJ - PNC Bank Arts Center14 - Boston, MA - TD Garden16 - Pittsburgh, PA - Consol Energy Center18 - Washington, DC - Jiffy Lube Live Amphitheater21 - Tulsa, OK - BOK Center23 - San Antonio, TX - AT&T Center25 - The Woodlands, TX - Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion26 - Dallas, TX - Superpages.com Center29 - Atlanta, GA - Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre @ Encore ParkOctober 20101 - Tampa, FL - Ford Amphitheatre2 - West Palm Beach, FL - Cruzan Amphitheatre-----I can honestly say I don't think I've ever been so excited about a concert in my whole life. I know MP gets a lot of shit because most people consider Permanent Waves the better album, but Moving Pictures is my personal favorite by a vast amount. There's probably no album I can think of that I'd rather see a band perform in it's entirety, and add on another 2 hours of Rush on top of that.Discuss.
