Announced today, the R40 LIVE Tour will visit 34 cities throughout North America this summer beginning May 8 in Tulsa, Okla. and finishing Aug. 1 in Los Angeles, Cali.These not to be missed concerts will highlight four decades of the band's music.

Over the course of their amazing career, RUSH has lived a lifetime together, providing an influential soundtrack to many of their fans' lives. Some have been with them since the start, while others have discovered them along the way and delved into their incredible body of work. To quote Dave Grohl from their momentous induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, "RUSH built their following the right way. No hype, no bullshit, they did it from the ground up. Their legacy is incredible and their influence undeniable."

After 40 years together and 20 gold and platinum studio albums Ė RUSH is ready to celebrate with the most loyal fans in the world by embarking on their 21st tour, one which will most likely be their last major tour of this magnitude.

RUSH released their 20th studio album, Clockwork Angels in 2012 via Anthem/Roadrunner Records. The critically acclaimed collection marked their first studio recording since 2007ís Snakes & Arrows and debuted at #1 in Canada and #2 on the Billboard 200 matching the highest chart debut of the bandís career. Known for their energetic live shows, the most recent RUSH release was the R40 collectorís boxset including live footage spanning all four decades of the trioís career, including over two hours of unreleased material and a rare performance of the seven-part version of 2112 packaged in an impressive 52-page hardcover book.

RUSH have been recognized with eight Juno Awards, seven Grammy nominations, including one for the acclaimed documentary Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage that also won the Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival. The band members were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1994, made Officers of the Order of Canada in 1996 and inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2010. They have received a star on both Canadaís Walk of Fame (1999) and Hollywood Walk of Fame (2010).
