Rush to tour this summer, reprise 'Moving Pictures'
TORONTO - Rush is bringing "Moving Pictures" back into focus.
The Toronto trio has announced a new summer tour, on which they'll play the hit album in its entirety.
The tour begins June 29 in Albuquerque, N.M., and currently has four planned Canadian stops, with dates in Quebec City, Sarnia, Ont., and two in Toronto.
Rush is also working on their 20th studio album with producer Nick Raskulinecz, and plan on mixing in some new material during this summer's tour.
Released in 1981, "Moving Pictures" is still the band's biggest album.
It's been certified four times platinum and features some of Rush's biggest hits, including "Tom Sawyer," "Limelight" and "YYZ."
"We were off for a year and a half, and now it's just pouring," guitarist Alex Lifeson said in a release. "Everything is totally crazy and there's not a minute left in the day.
"We've got these half-dozen songs, and we'll probably go in the studio and work on a couple of them and see how it goes, perhaps release something -- and I say perhaps -- and then we plan on being on the road."
