Following a huge year which included a new album, a world tour and a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, Rush is ready to take a rest!
At least, according to singer/bassist Geddy Lee, who recently told Rolling Stone that the Canadian rock trio will be going on hiatus until potentially 2015, despite the fact that the 40th anniversary of drummer Neil Peart joining the band’s lineup is approaching.
During the interview, Lee reveals that Rush’s manager wants to them ring in the anniversary with yet another tour, but declares, “That's not going to happen though. My attitude is that as much as I'd like to celebrate 40 years, we need a break more than we need a 40th anniversary celebration. There's nothing wrong with celebrating 42 years.”
And it’s not just this year that’s been hectic for the band. Rush has been almost constantly busy for the past decade, releasing albums and touring around the world, so it’s understandable that Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart would be ready for an extended break.
So what will the guys of Rush be up to during their down time? Not much, according to Lee.
“The plan now is to have no plans,” the bassist tells Rolling Stone. “We have had a great 10 years of tour, album, tour album. I can honestly say that the three of us enjoyed this tour more than any one we've ever done. We left on a high note, but we recognize that we need to pay attention to our families and recharge our batteries. So we decided that we're just not going to discuss anything for a little while.”
But before the end of the year, Rush will have one final release for fans!
While on the aforementioned Clockwork Angels tour this past year in support of their latest LP of the same name, Rush recorded their concert at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, TX. The band will release the footage, dubbed Clockwork Angels Tour, on DVD/Blu-ray, and as a live album, come November 19.
