Canadian rock gods Rush are now a legacy act of the highest order, able to attract grandfathers, grandmothers and their grandkids, plus hip parents and teething toddlers in 2112 rompers. The band's story was expertly told in star-studded 2010 rock doc Beyond the Lighted Stage, which makes a great starter for any Rush novice. (Fanatics, too.) For the tour behind this year's Clockwork Angels, the trio's first studio set in five years, Rush will be accompanied by the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble during the middle of the show. String-laden versions of "YYZ" and "The Spirit of Radio" should further boost their nerdy cachet, and of course there will be drum solos.
