DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Legendary band Rush is bringing their first new collection of material in five years to the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Tickets go on sale April 28 at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com for the Sept. 18 show. The 33-city tour supports the upcoming album “CLOCKWORK ANGELS,” which will be released June 12.

“CLOCKWORK ANGELS,” is the renowned trio’s first collection of original material in more than five years and their first studio release via Anthem/Roadrunner records. It’s another notch for the band with more than 40 million records sold worldwide and countless sold-out tours. Rush is made up of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart.

The first single on the new album is “Headlong Flight.”

“‘Headlong Flight’ was one of those songs that was a joy to write and record from beginning to end,” Singer/bassist Geddy Lee said. “Alex [Lifeson] and I had blast jamming in my home studio one day before the 2nd leg of the Time Machine Tour and I did not revisit that jam until a year later. Alex and I assembled the song to be an instrumental and it’s original title was ‘Take that lampshade off yo head!’

“But once we saw the lyrics Neil had written for ‘Headlong Flight’, I knew that the spirit of the lyrics matched the instrumental perfectly and it was just a matter of making them fit and writing the melodies.”

The RIAA has certified Rush for the third most consecutive gold/platinum studio albums by a rock band, topped only by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
