Rush has announced that they will perform their first European festival in 35 years. The Canadian trio will headline the Swedish Rock Festival on June 8 in Sölvesborg, Sweden.
The veteran prog rockers are touring in support of their upcoming 20th studio album Clockwork Angels and the Swedes apparently can't wait for Rush to get to Sweden.
A press release explains the special relationship between Sweden and Rush: "In 2004, Rush played in Sweden for the first time in 25 years, selling out the Globe Arena in Stockholm. The overwhelming audience response marked the beginning of a passionate love story between the band and Sweden, and on June 8th, 2013 they will be back again."
The festival will also feature rockers Mötley Crüe, Soundgarden, Bad Company, Twisted Sister, Motorhead and Lynyrd Skynyrd and many more.
The Swedish Rock Festival will run June 5 to June 8 (6/5/13 - 6/8/13).
