rush band tour

Rush play Toronto twice in final concert tour ever

Iconic Toronto rockers Rush have announced dates for a 2015 tour, which is reported to be the last major live performances the group will play. In honour of the band's 40th anniversary and as a way of saying goodbye (at least to the touring life), Rush will play 34 North American cities this spring and summer, with back to back dates scheduled for June 17 and 19 at the Air Canada Centre.

"These not-to-be-missed concerts will highlight four decades of the band's music," reads a press release from the band, quelling any worries that the shows will focus on more recent releases. "It will most likely be their last major tour of this magnitude."

That leaves the door open for more live performances from Rush, but one suspects that hardcore fans will not want to miss what could be the last chance to see the band in a stadium setting.
