Rush planning '41st Anniversary' tour next year

The guys in Rush are doing their best to take a break. 

Guitarist Alex Lifeson tells "Rolling Stone" that they just had a band meeting in which they agreed to "not talk about anything band-wise for the next year."  But he says "the other people at that meeting" didn't get the message, so "there are already plans" in the works for a tour next year. 

Alex adds that it's "going to be a 41st anniversary tour, or whatever they're going to call it."  The rocker admits the group hasn't "talked seriously" about what they intend to do, but he says they'd like to put together shows that are "very pleasing for the fans across the board."  Lifeson adds that he believes it's "going to be a long tour," so they "just need to stay healthy until then." 

Rush wrapped up their "Clockwork Angels" tour last year.  This year marks the 40th anniversary of Rush as a trio featuring their longtime, classic lineup of Lifeson, frontman Geddy Lee, and drummer Neil Peart.  Lifeson started Rush in 1968.
