Rush to Play Barclays Center October 22

While the Barclays Center still has plenty of work to go before it's complete, the day will come sooner rather than later when its doors open for good, and shortly after that (and the inaugural concert on September 28th by Jay-Z), seminal Prog-Rock band Rush will take the stage.

Earlier today the band announced the dates for their Clockwork Angels Tour, and sure enough, the arena that's right in our backyard made the list (they'll also be playing a gig two nights before at Newark's Prudential Center, the only other show in the Tri-State Area).

They're on the road to promote their new album, and the 33-show tour starts September 7th and goes to December 2nd. Tickets will go on sale Friday, April 27th at 10 AM.

My inner Prog Rock nerd just geeked out pretty hard

is it too late to sign one of those petitions against building the arena?

Great. Our neighborhood will be overrun by ponytailed white guys with receding hairlines.

Even critics of the stadium should be impressed by the shows theyve booked before the arena is even completed

I don't care who performs there. I would trek to the Meadowlands or where ever to hear whomever. the protest goes deep and even if I have lost I won't put my money down there!

As I told my college roommate, 30 years age. If Rush were playing in my backyard I would not leave home for the day. Now they are.

Dan: You are random in your deletion of comments you deem to be out of place. I simply don't see the Barclays Center as being Park Slope, and an announcement of a concert by Rush belongs in Brooklyn Vegan or some such place, not here. I see no other explanation for the random inclusion of such an announcement than some sort of favor to a publicist.

How about the fact that its his blog and he can write whatever the hell he wants? Dale and I are behind you 100%, Dan. This place rocks.

@Ted I posted it because it was newsworthy, and I thought it was worth mentioning. There was no publicist involved, trust me.

New rule: No responding to anyone named Ted Nugent.

@ParkPlace - no need to fret. Ted Nugent will be dead or in jail come November.

Here's Park Slope, news of events coming to Barclays is definitely newsworthy to residents. We're all better off if we ignore the words of anyone named "Ted Nugent"
