Rush Plotting 41st Anniversary Tour for 2015

Rush Plotting 41st Anniversary Tour for 2015
Rolling Stone Magazine just published an article titled Rush Plotting 41st Anniversary Tour for 2015. The article, quoting Alex Lifeson, indicates that there may be a new tour in the works for the Spring of 2015.

From the article:
Rush wrapped up their worldwide Clockwork Angels tour just seven months ago, but they're already planning a lengthy "41st anniversary" tour for 2015, according to guitarist Alex Lifeson. "The three of us just had a meeting," Lifeson tells Rolling Stone. "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. It's going to be a 41st anniversary tour, or whatever they're going to call it."

The specifics of the tour are still in flux. "We haven't really talked seriously about what we want to do," says Lifeson. "But 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. That's always been difficult, for us to sort of balance things."
Fantastic news!

  2. Reeading and rereading what Alex said, I don't get the 41st Anniversary Tour being real at all. He specifically stated "The three of us just had a meeting," Lifeson tells Rolling Stone. "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. It's going to be a 41st anniversary tour, or whatever they're going to call it.***" That clearly indicates to me that a) Rush agreed NOT to talk shop for a year, which means that AFTER a year, they would THEN decide what to do next---meaning that in 201 they would make a decision, and b) that other people there didn't grasp that part of the conversation and wanted a new tour, and Alex is joking as usual about what those people are going to call it.

    I'd be dumbfounded if they went on tour again so soon after coming off a tour, with no new album in between. That just isn't typical of Rush, R30 being the exception, not (so far) the rule.

    1. I take EVERYTHING that Alex says with a grain of salt, so until there is an official announcement, I'll treat this as a favorable rumor :)
