Rush Kick Off Tour With String Section

Tuesday, September 11th 2012 11:30

The band are joined by an eight piece section for their new live show

Rush have completely overhauled their live set for their Clockwork Angels tour and they are for the first time joined by guest musicians onstage during the second half of the performance.

The tour started in New Hampshire on Friday with a set that included seven songs not played for over a decade, plus several tracks from the band's new album.

On the second night of the tour in Virginia the band then changed the set and included a couple more songs that they haven't played in years.

The band will be heading to the UK in May for a run of dates, and it looks like fans will be in for a real treat.
