Rush - Time Machine Tour 2010

As mentioned in an earlier post Rush will be touring this year and I just found out that not only are they playing a few places that are about a 4-5 hour drive from here they are also playing in Tulsa at the BOK Center on September 21st! Now all I have to do is drive about 5 miles and I'll be there to see them for the 7th time! According to their website they will be playing their 1981 album Moving Pictures (extra points if you guess where my blog got it's name from) in it's entirety as well as the new songs that they've recorded. Their plan is to tour and then go back into the studio to finish a new album with another tour next year to follow. Listed below are the tour dates:

One thing I've noticed is that they appear to be hitting some places that they haven't played in a long time like Tulsa and Wichita as well as some state fairs and fests. This is probably because the larger tour next year will feature all of the "normal" big city stops. The band is known to mix things up and go where the fans are. All I can say is I'm super stoked about this and can't wait until tickets go on sale so that I can hold mine in my greedy little hands.
