Rush are back and have finally arrived in the UK as tonight [16th May, 2011] they're gracing Sheffield with their first show on English turf since the Snakes And Arrows tour, show-casing their highly anticipated 'Time Machine' tour, which as well as comprising a 25-track strong set boasts 2 brand new tracks form the forthcoming album 'Clockwork Angels' and most jaw-droppingly exciting their globally successful and favourite album of many 'Moving Pictures' played in order in it's entirety for the first time EVER!
The band first embarked on the mammoth tour jumping in their 'Time Machine' and first landing on American shores back in June 29, 2010 in Albuquerque!
After 6 more slots due in Europe [including the 25th May show at London's O2 – there's a few of us here @ 991 that will see you there if you're going to that one!] they'll be taking to the skies again to head back to the States for another round of musical mayhem and then after a penultimate date in their homeland Canada in Vancouver [sure to be a hearfelt exciting performance there!] they'll be exiting stage ['left' we presume] in George, America on 2nd July 2011.
Let's hope that final date brings about [after a welcome rest of course – not too long though boys!] a solid date on the horizon for the new album…
