A new book due this fall will document the global touring history of Canadian rockers Rush. Available October 15, “Rush: Wandering The Face Of The Earth: The Official Touring History” contains a foreword from Primus bassist Les Claypool and an afterword by drummer Stewart Copeland of The Police.
A synopsis of the book reads: “Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, and Neil Peart performed together for the first time to an audience of 11,000 people in 1974. Forty years later, their last tour sold over 442,000 tickets. This is the story of everything in between. This is the story of Rush. Fondly known as the Holy Triumvirate, Rush is one of the top bands to shine through rock-and-roll history.”
“This book includes every setlist, every opening act, and every noteworthy moment meticulously researched and vetted by the band themselves. Along with spectacular, never-before-seen imagery, this is THE must-have tour compendium for Rush fans.”
Rush performed the final show of their 40th anniversary R40 Live tour at The Forum in Los Angeles on August 1, 2015, marking the last concert appearance by the band.
