Rush's Alex Lifeson Says Last Tour Didn't Feel Like Their Last (Top Story)


.
On Thursday Rush's Alex Lifeson Says Last Tour Didn't Feel Like Their Last was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson says their recent North American run of shows wasn't long enough and didn't feel like a true finish to their live career. He, Geddy Lee and Neil Peart hit the road throughout the summer in what's thought to be the band's last large-scale tour.

And Lifeson says although he went into the 35-date trek thinking it would indeed be their last, he's now not so sure. He tells Prog: "I don't know if I do still feel that way now. I thought the tour was great. I thought we played really well, the turnout was fantastic, I thought the set was great, the songs we chose were right.

"There was so much about it that was so positive and I think going into it there was the thought that this is the last one - a nice way to go out on top. But once we were in the middle of it or even towards the end of it, it seemed like it was just too short."

He continues: "I just wish we'd been able to do another 20 shows or so and it's too bad that we're going to miss the UK particularly. It just feels a little shy of a true finish, a complete resolution. But if that's the way it is, then we'll adjust to it." Read more - here.
