It’s been a rumour for months but Rush has confirmed they will not be touring anymore. Alex Lifeson said “We had such a great time on [last year’s “R40″] tour,” And “I think that no matter how long it would have been, it would have been too short.” He says drummer Neil Peart’s health is a major factor in the band’s decision to stay of the road. “His shoulders were hurting, his arms were hurting, his elbows, his feet, everything,” Lifeson says that he hasn’t talked with his band mates about the future yet, but they could still play one-off shows or short runs and could still record music. Check out the full story at Rolling Stone.
