Apologies if this has already been announced, but a bit busy at the moment & just want to get this posted:

Finally Rush put me out of my misery & announce UK dates:

May 22nd 2013 - Manchester Arena
May 24th 2013 - London, O2 Arena
May 26th 2013 - Birmingham, LG Arena
May 28th 2013 - Sheffield, Motorpoint Arena
May 30th 2013 - Glasgow, SECC

If anyone's interested, Planet Rock are doing a 24 hour pre-sale as from tomorrow @ 9:am:

Rush 24 hour pre sale

Me happy

Sorry - bit of a mix up on dates - the presale begins on 17th May, not today...

...pricey, too

Thanks for heads up, Jim. I may try and make this one.

I'll try and get in early. I've always had sh*t seats when I've seen Rush, and the sound has always been dreadful. I think where you sit may have some bearing on this.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Still, tempted, tempted, tempted..........

Although, it is a bit of a pain paying for tickets to a gig you have to wait a year to get to!

Yeah they are pricey here too. Now I'm not sure if I will go.

Now Lazy...what did I tell you the last time?? You better go...the boyz are getting long in the tooth and not many of these tours left.
It is WELL WORTH the money, you know that! One of the most brilliant shows you will see.......
 
Don't miss it!
 
Based on other concerts its not that much more....I think I paid US95ea for 4 tixs for the family.

^Don't think I'll be going. Ticket prices are high but they have to charge that these days. That's how they earn a living. Birmingham is closer for me but even so............no one to go with really.

I want to hear the album before deciding. Birmingham looks the most attractive. O2 can be a pain as its the 'wrong' side of London for me.

Another Rush tour - brilliant - tickets booked - just one more year to go!
 
How much longer can they go on for? - they can't go on for ever.  For those people who don't like the price, or whatever excuse - this could be the last time.  If you have never seen them, and want to go - choose a central position on an elevated platform at the back - the sound as top notch. 
 
How long did I think for before I booked - probably none.  No question - just go.

Going to see them at the O2. First time I've seen Rush, a prog rock concert...or a concert in general for that matter. LOL

My first ever gig was a punk gig in 1977... you're setting the bar a bit higher for yours
