Rush: Neil Peart to appear on Late Show With David Letterman

Awesome news for Rush fans: Neil Peart is coming to a TV near you.

RushIsABand reports Peart is scheduled to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday, June 9 as part of the show’s Drum Solo Week.

The fan site discovered the news in the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly (June 3/10 double issue), in a sidebar in the Music Reviews section entitled "Who's Playing on Late Night & Talk Shows."

June 9th is the band's off-day between Greenville and New Orleans, so the schedule syncs up for an extremely rare Peart TV appearance.

We’ll look for more details on this, including an official announcement by Peart and/or Rush.
