Rush Announces First European Festival Appearance In 34 Years
According to Blabbermouth.net, Canadian rock legends Rush have been confirmed for next year's edition of the Sweden Rock Festival, set to take place June 5-8, 2013 in Sölvesborg, Sweden. It will mark the band's first appearance at a European festival in 34 years (since they played at Pinkpop in Holland in 1979). Sweden Rock Festival 2013 will be a four-day festival featuring a total of 80 bands performing on five outdoor stages. Tickets will be made available September 25. In 2004, Rush played in Sweden for the first time in 25 years, selling out the Globe Arena in Stockholm. The overwhelming audience response marked the beginning of a passionate love story between the band and Sweden, and on June 8, 2013 they will be back again. The event promises to be a magnificent assault on all senses - Geddy Lee (vocals/bass), Alex Lifeson (guitar) and Neil Peart (drums) tell the Sweden Rock organizers that the stage production will be one of the greatest in Rush's entire history, and the biggest they have ever brought to Europe. Rush's first new collection of original material in over five years and their first studio release via Anthem/Roadrunner Records, "Clockwork Angels" will be released on June 12.
