Rush 2015 tour dates leaked?

The first pair of 2015 concert dates by Rush appear to have been leaked by Tickemaster.

Fan site Rush Is A Band reports the ticket site have listed a Rush show in Boston, MA on June 23 and a June 29 date at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

Links to both shows have since been removed from the Ticketmaster website.

The fan site also reports the Rush 2015 tour rumor mill is starting to kick into gear, with news that that the band has dates in Columbus, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit and New York City on hold for June, along with a Las Vegas date in late June/early August.

Last month, bassist Geddy Lee revealed the band were still considering options regarding a 2015 tour, while guitarist Alex Lifeson said earlier in the year that the group would be hitting the road.

Starting next month, Rush will reissue 14 albums with upgraded high-definition audio.

The band are re-releasing materal from their years with Mercury Records in chronological order each month throughout 2015, starting in January with 1975’s “Fly By Night” and wrapping up in December with 1989’s “A Show Of Hands.”
