Rock band Rush announce new album, tour


Emma Mackintosh

LEGENDARY rock band Rush have announced details of a UK arena tour next spring, including a show at Birmingham's LG Arena on Sunday, May 26, 2013.

This will be the first chance to see the band since their Time Machine Tour in 2011, which saw the band undertake a three and a half hour set each night.

This announcement comes after the band announced the release of their first studio album in five years, ‘Clockwork Angels’ set to land next month. This is the renowned trio’s first new collection of original material in half a decade and their first studio release via Anthem/Roadrunner Records.

It will be their 20th studio album and is expected to be released on June 11, in exclusive Classic Rock Fan Pack form; providing a unique collectible package containing the 12 track studio album alongside a specially created magazine with unseen behind-the-scenes content put together by Classic Rock.

The Fan Pack cover will also feature brand new exclusive artwork from Rush’s long-time collaborator Hugh Syme, who also designed the Clockwork Angels artwork, and will come with free gifts including a Limited Edition keyring and artwork poster.

With more than 40 million records sold worldwide and countless sold-out tours, Rush – Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart – are not only one of the most inventive and compelling groups in rock history, but remain one of the most popular. 

Tickets for the show go on sale at 9am on Friday, May 18, priced at £75 and £60 (plus booking and transaction fees) and are available from The Ticket Factory: or 0844 338 8000.
