Rush 

7:30 p.m. Sunday, August 22. Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, 14141 Riverport Drive, Maryland Heights.

At this point in its career, what more can be said about Rush? More specifically, how do you sum up its 40-plus years career? Perhaps the chorus of new single "Caravan" says it best: "I can't stop thinking big." The Canadian power trio basically invented space-prog, a genre that's inspired legions of musicians and sci-fi geeks the world over. This current tour features Rush performing 1981's Moving Pictures in its entirety — yes, that's the one with "Tom Sawyer" and "Limelight" — and comes hot on the heels of the successful documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage. "Caravan" is due to appear on a forthcoming new album, Clockwork Angels, and it features some killer, funk-inflected bass and raucous guitars.
