From KNAC.com:RUSH ANNOUNCES 2002 TOUR OF NORTH AMERICA;
VAPOR TRAILS ON TRACK FOR MAY 14TH;
"ONE LITTLE VICTORY" IS #1 MOST-ADDED AT ROCK RADIO
Anthem/Atlantic recording group Rush has announced the itinerary for the summer segment of
their highly anticipated 2002 tour of North America. When the concert series kicks off on June 28th
in Hartford, Connecticut, it will mark Rush's first live performance since July 1997. Rush's extensive
touring schedule will continue into the fall, with additional dates to be announced. Tickets will go
on sale beginning April 20th.
Rush's return to the road follows the May 14th release of their eagerly awaited new album, Vapor
Trails, their first all-new studio collection in over five years. The album's first single, "One Little
Victory," has been instantly and enthusiastically embraced by radio outlets across the country.
The #1 most-added track at all three rock formats - mainstream, active, and heritage, it is already
bulleting quickly up the airplay charts.
Vapor Trails was produced by Rush with engineer Paul Northfield (Marilyn Manson, Hole). The
13-track collection sees the legendary power trio - Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart -
redefining their intensely individualistic music, blending their famously complex dynamics with
driving melodic hooks and a passionate, personal lyrical approach. Tracks like the kinetic "How It
Is," the emotive "Sweet Miracle," and the propulsive album-opening "One Little Victory" are
angular, atmospheric and altogether extraordinary. With the visionary new VAPOR TRAILS, Rush
has taken a bold step forward, making it clear that one of rock 'n' roll's all-time great bands are
more than just back, they're better than ever.
Vapor Trails is Rush's 17th studio recording. All of the Canadian trio's 22 albums have been
certified RIAA gold-or-better, with cumulative worldwide sales of over 35 million. Their most recent
Anthem/Atlantic releases are 1996's gold-certified Test For Echo, followed by 1998's gold-certified
multi-disc live set, Different Stages.
