RUSH

 

The Xcel Energy Center is pleased bring in renowned rock trio RUSH for their Snakes & Arrows World Tour. RUSH will perform in Saint Paul at the Xcel Energy Center on Sunday, September 9th, at 7:30 p.m.

 

Rush is a Canadian rock band including bassist, keyboardist, and vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and drummer and lyricist Neil Peart. Rush was formed in the summer of 1968, in the neighborhood of Willowdale in Toronto, Ontario, by Lifeson, Lee, and John Rutsey. Peart replaced Rutsey on the drums in July 1974, two weeks before the group's first U.S. tour, to complete the present lineup. Since the release of the band's self-titled debut album in 1974 Rush has become known for the instrumental intelligence of its members and each of the members has won many individual awards for their musical prowess. Rush has influenced various modern artists such as Metallica, The Smashing Pumpkins and Primus.

 

Rush as a band was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1994 and boasts 23 gold records and 14 platinum records, making them one of the best-selling rock bands in history. These statistics place Rush fifth behind The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Kiss and Aerosmith for the most consecutive gold and platinum albums by a rock band.

 

Rush has changed its style dramatically over the years, beginning with blues inspired heavy metal to styles encompassing hard rock, progressive rock, a period dominated by synthesizers and, more recently, modern rock.

 

The band is currently promoting their latest album, "Snakes & Arrows," Rush's first album of original material in nearly five years. Fans will experience the technical virtuosity and hard-rocking compositions they have come to expect from RUSH members. Tickets for this show are sure to sell out fast, so buy Rush tickets early to insure the best selection and best prices! Rock ‘n Roll is hear to stay at the Xcel Energy Center and Rush is a show that won't disappoint picky concert goers.
