RUSH's 'Time Machine' North American Tour Grosses $19 Million

According to, RUSH's "Time Machine Tour" that played North American venues from late June through early October grossed a total of $18,989,834. The top gross among the reported concerts came from a two-performance engagement at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, with sales of more than 16,000 tickets for both shows (August 16 and August 18). The largest amphitheater crowd for a single performance came from the Houston market with 15,225 fans in attendance at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion on September 25.

The "Time Machine Tour" kicked off on June 29 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and finished on October 2 in West Palm Beach, Florida, hitting a total of 37 cities. The centerpiece of the trek was the band's first-ever performance of its classic 1981 album "Moving Pictures" in its entirety. The group also played other beloved tracks from its catalog as well as new songs that the band has been working on.

This was RUSH's first road trip since touring extensively behind its 2007 studio album, "Snakes & Arrows".
