Rush is planning a tour to celebrate the band’s 41st anniversary next year.

The Canadian band only finished their massive Clockwork Angels worldwide tour last year, but they are hoping to head out on the road again to commemorate another milestone.

Guitarist Alex Lifeson tells RollingStone.com, “The three of us just had a meeting. We said, ‘Let’s not talk about anything band-wise for the next year. Let’s separate ourselves and come back rejuvenated.’

“Unfortunately, the other people at that meeting didn’t hear what we were talking about, so there are already plans being made for spring of 2015. It’s going to be a 41st anniversary tour, or whatever they’re going to call it.”

The details for the trek have not yet been worked out, but the group is planning to make the event an experience to remember for fans.

He continues, “We haven’t really talked seriously about what we want to do. But I think we’re probably going to lean towards making it a real sort of fan event, and really try to put something together that’s very pleasing for the fans across the board.”
