Jiffy Lube Live | Bristow, Virginia
Celebrating 40 years since the release of their self-titled debut album, Canadian cult legends Rush bring their R40 Tour to Jiffy Lube Live on Saturday 30th May! The prog-rock heroes will make their way to 34 North American cities this summer in order to mark 4 decades of powerful music. Famed for the phenomenal experience of their live shows, Rush are bound to make this a special and unforgettable night!
Many bands claim to be eclectic in their influences, but Canadian rockers Rush truly run the gamut of music, from bluesy hard rock to British-influenced progressive via ska, funk, reggae, new wave and a whole host of synthesizers. In the 40 years since the release of their eponymous debut album, they have sold over 40 million albums worldwide and have been awarded 24 gold, 14 platinum, and 3 multi-platinum albums. Masters of their craft both technically and stylistically, the members of Rush are each celebrated as some of the most accomplished players in popular music, and their influence on modern rock and metal artists can be clearly heard. In 2010, the band received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and, later that year, also accepted the Billboard Legends of Live Award. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 and have the honor of being Officers of the Order of Canada. In November 2014, Rush released the R40 box set comprising five previously released live video albums, plus assorted unreleased footage from throughout the band’s career, and 2015 sees Universal Music Enterprises reissuing 14 albums from the band's Mercury catalog.
