Rush Planning ‘Rarer’ Material for 41st Anniversary Tour

3042.f Alex says the band is planning to perform pieces that haven’t gotten much play over the years on a tour that’s in the works to celebrate the band’s 41 years making records.

Alex mentioned the tour in a March 20 Rolling Stone piece with Andy Greene, and says it’s likely to be fairly long and fan-focused.

“I think we’re probably going to lean towards making it a real sort of fan event, and really try to put something together that’s very pleasing for the fans across the board,” he says. “We want to try and play different material this time. I’ve always wanted to do some rarer Rush material, and this should be a good opportunity to do that. I also think it’s going to be a long tour.”

The band’s successful Clockwork Angels tour, which geerated about $36 million and was a top grossing tour, ended about 7 months ago. Geddy has said he wouldn’t mind waiting until 2016 to do a 42nd anniversary tour, but it looks like they’re going for 41 instead.

Thanks to RushIsABand for the head’s up.
