The Canadian power trio adds a second leg to its “Clockwork Angels Tour,” scheduling gigs in the U.S. and Canada for June through August. Tickets in selected markets go on sale later this week.

Perhaps one of the finer aspects of Rush’s “Clockwork Angels Tour” is that Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart are now being referred to as “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees.”  After being ignored way too long by the powers-that-be, the band will be inducted during a ceremony held in Los Angeles April 18.

Beginning the tour in Austin, Texas, April 23, the first leg includes shows in Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut and New Jersey.  The second set of dates spreads it out a bit with the band playing shows across the U.S. as well as stopping in Canada provinces Nova Scotia, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.
