Celebrating 40 years, RUSH confirmed that the "R40 Live" tour will visit 34 cities throughout North America this summer beginning May 8 in Tulsa, Oklahoma and finishing August 1 in Los Angeles, California. These not-to-be-missed concerts will highlight four decades of the band's music.

Tickets for the "R40 Live" tour will go on sale starting January 30 in select markets at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

After 40 years together and 20 gold and platinum studio albums, RUSH is ready to celebrate with the most loyal fans in the world by embarking on their 21st tour, one which will most likely be their last major tour of this magnitude. Celebrate four decades of music with three incredible musicians — all in one night.

Over the course of their amazing career, RUSH has lived a lifetime together, providing an influential soundtrack to many of their fans' lives. Some have been with them since the start, while others have discovered them along the way and delved into their incredible body of work. To quote Dave Grohl from their momentous induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, "RUSH built their following the right way. No hype, no bullshit, they did it from the ground up. Their legacy is incredible and their influence undeniable."

RUSH has been recognized with eight Juno Awards, seven Grammy nominations, including one for the acclaimed documentary "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage" that also won the Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival. The band members were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall Of Fame in 1994, made Officers Of The Order Of Canada in 1996 and inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame in 2010. They have received a star on both Canada's Walk Of Fame (1999) and Hollywood Walk Of Fame (2010). In 2012, RUSH were bestowed with the highest artistic honor in Canada when receiving the Governor General's Performing Arts Award. To the elation of their fans, RUSH were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2013.
