The band will also return to Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Halifax, Nova Scotia, for the first time in decades. That tour will continue into August, with details regarding dates and venues coming soon.

Readers' Poll: The Best Albums of 2012: Rush, 'Clockwork Angels'

Last year was a banner year for Rush: Along with the release of their 20th LP, a new concept record titled, Clockwork Angels, the beloved rockers were finally voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

"We're kind of in a groove right now," frontman Geddy Lee told Rolling Stone of the band's recent good fortunes and recent touring. "We feel really good about the way we're playing. We feel like we've raised our game in terms of musicianship and our level of chops. We're also very excited about the way Clockwork Angels turned out. The fan acceptance of it has been very cool. We're happy to go out and bring it around the globe."

Song Stories

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
