The R30: 30th Anniversary Tour was a concert tour by Canadian rock band Rush that celebrated the 30th anniversary of the band's definitive formation in July 1974 after Neil Peart replaced original drummer John Rutsey. It was also in support of the cover album Feedback. Tour routing saw Starwood Amphitheatre, in Nashville, Tennessee to start with on May 26, 2004 and Sportpaleis Ahoy in Rotterdam, The Netherlands to finish on October 1 of that same year.

The tour resulted in the November 2005 R30: 30th Anniversary World Tour DVD which was recorded September 24, 2004 at the Festhalle in Frankfurt, Germany. The tour was staged in amphitheaters in North America and arenas in Europe. Of note was a video role of comedian Jerry Stiller as an introduction to each performance. The setlist was consistent throughout the entire world tour for the first time since the 1987 Hold Your Fire tour.
