The Canadian trio starts the North American leg June 13 at Atlanta’s HiFi Buys Amphitheatre and visits more than 45 cities throughout the United States and Canada before traveling to the U.K. and Europe.

Tickets go on sale March 31 in a majority of tour markets. The balance of performances go on sale over the next few weeks.

The tour will support the band’s upcoming album, Snakes & Arrows (Anthem/Atlantic Records). It’s Rush’s first album of original material in nearly five years.

Due out May 1, Snakes & Arrows was recorded in the fall of 2006 with Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver) and Rush co-producing.

Fans can expect to experience the technical virtuosity and complex compositions they have come to expect from Rush members, Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart.
