FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RUSH ANNOUNCES 2002 TOUR OF NORTH AMERICA;
VAPOR TRAILS ON TRACK FOR MAY 14TH;
"ONE LITTLE VICTORY" IS #1 MOST-ADDED AT ROCK RADIO

Anthem/Atlantic recording group Rush has announced the itinerary for the summer segment of their highly anticipated 2002 tour of North America. When the concert series kicks off on June 28th in Hartford, Connecticut, it will mark Rush's first live performance since July 1997. Rush's extensive touring schedule will continue into the fall, with additional dates to be announced. Tickets will go on sale beginning April 20th.

Rush's return to the road follows the May 14th release of their eagerly awaited new album, Vapor Trails, their first all-new studio collection in over five years. The album's first single, "One Little Victory," has been instantly and enthusiastically embraced by radio outlets across the country. The #1 most-added track at all three rock formats - mainstream, active, and heritage, it is already bulleting quickly up the airplay charts.

Vapor Trails was produced by Rush with engineer Paul Northfield (Marilyn Manson, Hole). The 13-track collection sees the legendary power trio - Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart - redefining their intensely individualistic music, blending their famously complex dynamics with driving melodic hooks and a passionate, personal lyrical approach. Tracks like the kinetic "How It Is," the emotive "Sweet Miracle," and the propulsive album-opening "One Little Victory" are angular, atmospheric and altogether extraordinary. With the visionary new VAPOR TRAILS, Rush has taken a bold step forward, making it clear that one of rock 'n' roll's all-time great bands are more than just back, they're better than ever.

Vapor Trails is Rush's 17th studio recording. All of the Canadian trio's 22 albums have been certified RIAA gold-or-better, with cumulative worldwide sales of over 35 million. Their most recent Anthem/Atlantic releases are 1996's gold-certified Test For Echo, followed by 1998's gold-certified multi-disc live set, Different Stages.
