Rush Clockwork Angels Tour Update: First Leg Complete
Rush have just completed the first leg of their Clockwork Angels Tour after performing at the Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada last night. The band will now take a ten-day break before resuming the tour on October 10th at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The band will then continue throughout the East Coast of the U.S. and Canada during October before their next break during the first week of November.
By all accounts, the tour has been a rousing success. Fans and critics alike have been dazzled by the band's performance which has been highlighted by some incredible lighting and pyrotechnic effects. The addition of the string ensemble to the tour has also been met with great enthusiasm while the nightly adjustments to the set lists have provided a sense of spontaneity that arguably has been absent from the most recent Rush tours.
Some fantastic photos from nearly every show are available on the Tour Dates page. Please contact me if you'd like to donate some of your own tour pictures.
