Rush Members Talks Future Music and Special Live Performances

Rush are currently on what they expect will be their last major tour but the members of the band continue to reassure fans that the tour will not be their farewell and they plan to carry on as a band after the trek is over.

Frontman Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson both addressed what the band might do in the future in separate interviews with Lee talking about new music and live options and Lifeson talking about possibilities for future live performances that wouldn't involve a tour.

The Montreal Gazette reports that Lee didn't hesitate when he was asked about another album. He said, "Absolutely. Again, I don't know if my partners agree, but I think they probably do.

"I can certainly see us writing together and putting a musical project together. I cannot really tell you how that would present itself in a live situation. I don't know that there is the will from my two partners to do any kind of tour. But I wouldn't exclude the possibility of doing a set of dates, or some one-off things."

Lifeson meanwhile sees the possibility of the band doing residency type shows in the future. He tells Niagara Falls Review, "I don't see us breaking up or hanging it up, but certainly this kind of touring has become much more difficult.

"So, maybe in the future we'd look at more special-event kind of things. We've always talked about doing, say, five days at Radio City, five days at Massey Hall, those sorts of runs instead of five, six, seven months."
