Rush has revealed plan for world tour set to launch next year.
According to a new interview with Rush founding member Alex Lifeson, posted in March at RollingStone.com, the legendary Canuck prog-rockers will hit the road in spring, for what the veteran musician called a "41st anniversary tour."
The guitar whiz tells Rolling Stone, "The three of us just had a meeting. We said, 'Let's not talk about anything band-wise for the next year. Let's separate ourselves and come back rejuvenated. Unfortunately, the other people at that meeting didn't hear what we were talking about, so there are already plans being made for spring of 2015."
Referring to the tour name, Lifeson adds, "It's going to be a 41st anniversary tour, or whatever they're going to call it."
Lifeson revealed few details about the tour, except to that it would a "long tour," built to be "pleasing to the fans across the board" and that Lifeson would like to play "some rarer Rush material."
Rush will celebrate the 40th anniversary of their classic 1974 self-titled debut album with a new vinyl boxset, which will shelves April 15.
