Rush 'Clockwork Angels' North American Tour Dates Announced
Alongside the release of the powerful new single "Headlong Flight," Rush has announced that they will embark on a North American Tour in support of their upcoming and highly anticipated new album, Clockwork Angels.
This year's fall tour will visit approximately 33 cities beginning September 7 in Manchester, NH, and finishing December 2 in Houston, Texas. Tickets for the Clockwork Angels Tour will go on sale starting April 27 in select markets at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.
Clockwork Angels, the band's 20th studio album, will be released on June 12. It will be the trio's first new collection of original material in over five years and their first studio release via Anthem/Roadrunner records.
Singer/bassist Geddy Lee remarked, "'Headlong Flight' was one of those songs that was a joy to write and record from beginning to end. Alex [Lifeson] and I had blast jamming in my home studio one day before the 2nd leg of the Time Machine Tour and I did not revisit that jam until a year later. Alex and I assembled the song to be an instrumental and its original title was 'Take that lampshade off yo head!' but once we saw the lyrics Neil had written for 'Headlong Flight,' I knew that the spirit of the lyrics matched the instrumental perfectly and it was just a matter of making them fit and writing the melodies."
