Rush is without question one of the most inventive and compelling groups in rock history, equally famed for both its virtuoso musicianship and provocative songwriting. Rush is one of rock's most influential bands, ranking third for most consecutive gold and platinum albums behind The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. The band has engaged legions of devoted fans over the decades and is admired by generations of musicians.
RUSH will bring their revered 3 ½ hour Time Machine Tour to the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle, on Saturday 21st May 2011.
The Time Machine tour is an evening with Rush, where they will perform their classics, give a taste of the future and will - for the first time ever in the UK - feature the Moving Pictures album live in its entirety.
Released in 1981, Moving Pictures is the band's most successful album, certified 4x Platinum and features some of Rush's most well known songs and perennial radio favourites such as Tom Sawyer, Limelight and the Grammy-nominated instrumental YYZ. In September 2010, Eagle Vision released "2112 & Moving Pictures - Classic Albums" on both DVD and Blu-ray as part of their celebrated Classic Albums series.
Earlier this month, Rush received the Legends of Live award at the Billboard Touring Awards in New York City. This was followed by Rush receiving the Living Legend award at the 2010 Classic Rock Awards in London (the first time this award has ever been presented to a band, previous recipients include Jimmy Page, Ozzy Osbourne and Alice Cooper).
