During their 30 year career, Rush has been recognized for having one of the most dedicated fan bases in the industry. Despite their loyal following and their substantial collection of platinum and gold albums, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and mainstream rock scene have constantly snubbed the band. But Rush is showing they can’t be stopped, with the release of a film, new music and the Time Machine Tour, with a stop at PNC Bank Arts Center Sept. 3. Fans can expect lead vocalist/bassist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart to recreate beloved tracks like “Fly By Night,” “2112,” and “Tom Sawyer” in a scarily accurate way, along with the usual epic drum solo by Peart. Tickets start at $35.75.
