Time Machine Tour 2011 - Alex Lifeson "Planet Rock" Interview

Time Machine TourToday Alex Lifeson gave a phone interview with the UK's Planet Rock radio. Although he covered much of the same territory that has been discussed in other recent interviews, he did discuss the expected setlist of the 2011 leg of the Time Machine Tour:

"We've decided to do exactly the same set that we were doing last year. We talked about changing out some stuff. Certainly we wouldn't add any other new stuff because we haven't really developed it yet beyond sort of that first stage of writing and arranging. But we thought it best to keep the show as it is." - Alex Lifeson, Planet Rock, February 2, 2011 - Thanks to RushIsABand for the headsup!
The 2011 leg of the Time Machine Tour kicks off March 30th in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, will include the first ever filming of a US Rush Concert in Cleveland on April 15th, and will visit Scandinavia, Britain, Holland and Germany, with potentially more dates to be announced.
