Rush

Canadian hard rock gods Rush have released the new single "Headlong Flight" from their ninteenth LP Clockwork Angels, due on June 12th. The uber-influential trio will follow-up the release with a string of North American dates in September that will include a pair in the NYC area: Prudential Center in East Rutherford, NJ on 10/20 and on 10/22 in the spankin' new Barclays Center (!) in Brooklyn. All dates are listed below.

Along with co-owner Jay-Z's promised shows and Andrea Bocelli, the Barclays show is one of the first music events to be announced in the new space, which sits on Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues in Brooklyn. Tickets for Prudential go on Citi presale on 4/24 at 10AM and regular sale on 4/27 at 10AM. Tickets for the show at Barclays Center are on sale Friday, 4/27 at well (with presales probably happening too).

All tour dates, that "Headlong Flight" video, and more classic Rush, below...

I thought Rush was a made up band in that movie I Love You, Man. They're real? Or is this a joke?

Believe it or not, but a vast number of people do not associate sex or picking up girls with music. Go listen to the Black Eyed Peas you souless moron.

"I like all the assholes who claim to love Muse but make fun of Rush."

To be fair, far more girls are into Muse than Rush. Shallow, but still fact indeed.

Not too hot on the idea of the Barclays center in my neighb, but being able to walk a few minutes to a Rush show is pretty kick ass!

Posted by Anonymous | April 19, 2012 1:34 PM

@ 12:56 - totally fine not to like a band but to say that Rush sucks....well you just defined yourself as a know-nothing d-bag idiot with ZERO music knowledge.

Lifeson- better guitar player than ANY current musician you listen to.

Peart - better drummer than ANY current musician you listen to.

Lee - better bass player than any current musician you listen to.

This is fact, not opinion.

You are a dimwit....also a fact!

Peart is not only a better drummer than any current musician you listen to; he's better than drummers you've never heard of too.

Posted by Anonymous | April 19, 2012 1:50 PM

"Lifeson- better guitar player than ANY current musician you listen to."

That's not true. I mean, I like Alex and think he can play, but he's not better than Wayne Krantz, David Torn, Nels Cline, Marc Ribot, Mike Stern, or Eric Johnson. Sorry.

1:59 - Most readers/commenters on BV don't listen to the guitarists you listen to. You are an anomoly.

Posted by Anonymous | April 19, 2012 2:03 PM

Right there with ya, 11:49. And 11:23 - I grew up loving Rush, then grew out of it. Now I'm totally growing back into them again. Much better than anything new going on...

fucking Rush fans are total geeks. Doesn't you shift at Guitar Center start soon?

@ 1:59 Good comeback, I just assume that most people that can hate on a band of this caliber only listen to elementary buzz rock.

What about the voice of Geddy Lee, how did it get so high? I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy.

@ 2:25 - Haha!!! Good one! Main diference between music geek Rush fans (myself included) and the typical BV reader.....the Rush fan goes to the show for the actual MUSIC. Not to be seen, tweet about it and annnoy everyone around them while taking iPad photos/ video.

Posted by Anonymous | April 19, 2012 2:29 PM

rush shows have the highest per capita density of air guitarists and air drummers than any other live performance. this is well-documented.

Posted by Anonymous | April 19, 2012 2:30 PM

Prudential Center is not in East Rutherford but in Newark.
You mixed it up with crappy Izod center.

Posted by ME | April 19, 2012 2:39 PM

2:25: That's a far cry from the lots (no apostrophe necesary) of socially awkward losers wearing plaid shirts in attendance of typical WB shows.

Yea damn presale crap.. By the time comes for the regular public sale most likely there will be no seats left at all since all the scalpers will have taken them.. 4 day presale is absurd.. it should go back to the way it was... No presale and everyone had a chance to get a seat at the same time....

Nowadays you have to have the 2 or 3 CC cards that are always used for presales and if you dont have them your screwed

Posted by Anonymous | April 20, 2012 11:51 PM

Presales are irrelevant. Scalpers get their tickets either from the inside, or by using bots, regardless of whether they are sold through a presale.

"ughh you do realize that in the above picture, the guy from Rush is wearing a plaid shirt. not the most observant guy in the world are you?"

So? Maybe he's trying to make the effort to cater to you trendies. You should at least feel so appreciated!

And no, Geddy wearing a plaid shirt wasn't on my mind at the time (unlike the BS BV hipster ploy of trying to pass it off as an "I was aware of it, I was just making an ironic gesture"), but unlike you "cool" hip people, I'll actually admit so something like that. The thing is, unlike you people I don't let miniscule nonsense like that ruin my day or make me want to jump of a bridge.
