The Time Machine Tour was a concert tour by the Canadian rock band Rush that began on June 29, 2010 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and ended July 2, 2011 at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington. The tour was notable for featuring the album Moving Pictures played in its entirety for the first time live, as well as material from the band's then upcoming studio album Clockwork Angels.[1][2] This tour is one of three where the setlist has been consistent throughout the entire tour, the others being the 1987 Hold Your Fire tour and the 2004 R30: 30th Anniversary Tour.

As a tribute to the city that first played their music on the radio, the Cleveland performance at Quicken Loans Arena on April 15, 2011 was filmed and released as a DVD and Blu-ray, titled Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland. This is the first official full-length live performance filming of Rush in the United States.[3][4]

Cancellations/postponements[edit]

The show on July 7, 2010 in Chicago, IL at the Charter One Pavilion was postponed due to inclement weather. It was rescheduled for August 23, 2010. Fans attending the August 23, 2010 makeup show received an embroidered Rush baseball cap with "The Rain Date - Chicago 2010" on the back. Prior to kicking off the second leg of the tour, the band announced that they would be postponing the April 1, 2011 Greensboro, NC show a day later and as a result, they would move the April 6, 2011 show in Toledo, OH to April 13, 2011.[5]
