Acclaimed Canadian rockers Rush will bring their Clockwork Angels tour to Halifax in July.
Live Nation & evenko present the concert, which will take place at the Halifax Metro Centre on Friday, July 12 at 8 p.m. Tickets for the show will go on sale Saturday, Feb. 23 at 10 a.m.
Rush’s 20th studio album, Clockwork Angels has earned accolades by fans and press alike since its release June 12 of last year. Rolling Stone declared “the power-trio interplay could put guys half their age in the burn ward,” while All Music Guide succinctly summed up “Clockwork Angels demonstrates why, after 36 years, Rush’s fan base continues to grow. Its musical athleticism and calisthenic discipline are equaled only by its relentless creative drive and its will to express it in a distinct musical language.”
At the end of 2012, Rush won both the band of the year and album of the year awards at the Classic Rock Awards in London. This year, Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame at the momentous ceremony in Los Angeles on April 18.
Rush then kicks off their Clockwork Angels North American 2013 Tour in Austin, Texas and will visit Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, Nashville, Raleigh, Virginia Beach, Baltimore, Uncasville, and Atlantic City this spring. After returning from their European dates, a second leg will begin in June, which will include the Halifax stop.
