Legendary Canadian progressive-rockers Rush will be honored with star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame on June 25 at 11:30 a.m. at 6752 Hollywood Blvd. in front of the Musician's Institute. The honor comes as the band is gearing up for a number of new projects, including a tour, feature-length documentary in both theatres and on DVD, and long awaited new album.
The band recently released the new digital-only single "Caravan," which was available online on June 1 and is a long lead-in to Rush's upcoming 19th full-length studio release, "Clockwork Angels," due in spring 2011. Also this month is a limited engagement big screen release of the documentary "Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage," which opens in the U.S. and Canada on June 10. The documentary, which follows the band's 40-plus-years career, premiered last April at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival where it received the Audience Award. It is also scheduled to hit DVD and Blu-Ray on June 28.
Four days after receiving the Hollywood Walk of Fame star, Rush will kick off its "Time Machine Tour" on June 29 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and finish October 2 in West Palm Beach, Florida.
