We'd all love to see our favorite bands tour over and over, but unfortunately, everyone has to hang it up eventually--and the latest classic-rock act to do that just might be band Rush.
The band celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2015 with a tour, and frontman Geddy Lee recently told Rolling Stone it was likely their last, saying the band has "zero plans" to hit the road again as a group.
"We’re very close and talk all the time, but we don’t talk about work," he said. "We’re friends, and we talk about life as friends. I can’t really tell you more than that, I’m afraid. I would say there’s no chance of seeing Rush on tour again as Alex, Geddy, Neil. But would you see one of us or two of us or three of us? That’s possible."
In the meantime, Rush is commemorating the anniversary of 1978 progressive album Hemispheres, which is being re-released in an expanded edition on Nov. 16 featuring a remastered version, surround sound, promo materials, and more. But Lee is also thinking about the possibility of releasing new music in the form of another solo album. Lee's first and so far only solo album, My Favorite Headache, was released in 2000.
"I do think about it, and I think once the dust settles from this project, I’ll probably find myself bored and wandering down to the studio to try to enliven my own life, and if something of a positive nature happens down there, I’ll take it to the next step," he said.
The Hemispheres reissue is currently available for pre-order, including merch bundles. Fans can also enjoy a book showcasing Lee's collection of bass guitars in Big Beautiful Book of Bass, out in December.
