Friday, May 8

Rush was born in Canada in the early ‘70s as a trio that combined the talents of Jeff Jones, Alex Lifeson and John Rutsey. Not long after, Geddy Lee would take the place of Jones and Neil Peart would replace Rutsey, a wise grouping that would prove resilient through the next four decades. Today, Rush has sold more than 40 millions records worldwide, preformed on an incredible number of stages around the world, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Some of the group’s most popular hits include “Limelite,” “2112” and “Tom Sawyer.” On Friday, May 8, a lucky audience gets to see Rush live at the BOK Center in downtown Tulsa. Tickets range from $48 to $128. A celebration that’s been brewing for 40 years will kick off at 8 p.m. For more information, visit
