This year marks Rush’s 40th anniversary.
But instead, they’ll celebrate their 41st by touring the world next year.
This, according to guitarist Alex Lifeson, who just spoke to RollingStone.com.
“The three of us just had a meeting,” Lifeson told the site.
“We said, ‘Let’s not talk about anything band-wise for the next year. Let’s separate ourselves and come back rejuvenated.’ Unfortunately, the other people at that meeting didn’t hear what we were talking about, so there are already plans being made for spring of 2015. It’s going to be a 41st anniversary tour, or whatever they’re going to call it.”
Asked about the specifics of the tour, Lifeson said: “We haven’t really talked seriously about what we want to do. But I think we’re probably going to lean towards making it a real sort of fan event, and really try to put something together that’s very pleasing for the fans across the board. That’s always been difficult, for us to sort of balance things.”
