Rush

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-09-22

Something about a lot of the touring acts visiting SA lately makes us want to slip into the basement (or garage) and light up a stick of, um, incense. Asia, Kansas, and KISS have come and gone. Now Rush will dust off classic songs (like ’81’s synth-heavy gem “Tom Sawyer,” for instance) for a flashback-inducing revival ? mullets and air-guitars need not be left at home. Formed in Toronto in 1968, Rush notably sits third behind The Beatles and The Rolling Stones for the most consecutive gold or platinum studio albums by a rock band. Even though the band will be dining elsewhere, diehard fans won’t want to miss the AT&T Center’s “luxurious” Terrace Restaurant’s special Rush dinner ($32.95 per person, reservations can be made by calling (210) 444-5389). Concert only: $64.49-$143.06, 7:30pm, AT&T Center, 1 AT&T Center, (800) 745-3000, attcenter.com, ticketmaster.com.
