Rush Band Concert Stage

Rush Ready

A couple of weeks ago I confessed to my colleagues this would be the first summer I would not see Rush in many tours.  Maybe that was a signal to the planets.  That next Sunday Palladia aired the new Rush movie, Behind the Lighted Stage.  Hale showed interest.


I quickly scanned tickets online for the DC show September 18.  Like most of their tour, the show is virtually sold out.  Lawn seats were the only thing left.  StubHub provided a reasonable remedy.

So we’re going.  Upon hearing the news that she was invited to a Rush concert, Hale provided the hardest high-five of her life.  My hand is still stinging.

Below I offer a mix of my favorite Rush tunes of the new era.  Rush has been making music for 40 years.  Modern era would be the last 20-ish.  Enjoy!

Stay tuned.  We may provide a B side mix from the first 20 years.  I’ve got a good running list of about 12 songs already.  And if we feel up to it we may stream some tunes next week.  Maybe…
