Throwback Concert: RUSH at Mohegan Sun Arena 2013

By Drew Carrano

2013 was a big year for Rush. A big tour that both fans and critics praised and the long awaited induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Today we look back at their 2013 show at Mohegan Sun.


Today’s Throwback Concert:


Clockwork Angels Tour

Thursday May 9, 2013

Mohegan Sun Arena – Uncasville


About The Tour:

In 2012 Rush announced its “Clockwork Angels Tour” in support of its twentieth- and final – studio album, “Clockwork Angels.” The year-long tour kicked off on September 7, 2012 in Manchester, New Hampshire and would go on to play 73 cities world wide before ending the tour in Kansas City in August 2013. Rush would visit Connecticut twice on the tour: Bridgeport’s Webster Bank Arena in October 2012 and then Mohegan Sun Arena in May 2013. Both sold out shows.

This highly acclaimed tour featured a nine-piece string ensemble that accompanied Rush during the band’s second set, which highlighted songs off “Clockwork Angels.”

The show at Mohegan Sun Arena was just three weeks after Rush was (finally) inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fans of the Canadian trio celebrated as their rock heroes gave them a three hour performance consisting of new and classic Rush songs.
