RUSH Comments On Returning To The Last Venue They Played A Show With NEIL PEART

Rush played the Taylor Hawkins tribute show, which was at the same venue.

Rush played their final show at The Kia Forum in Inglewood, CA on August 1, 2015. Rush unofficially disbanded in 2018 and more formally announced their end after the death of drummer Neil Peart in 2020. Then on September 27, 2022, Rush returned to The Kia Forum a full seven years later to play the Taylor Hawkins tribute show with drummers Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), and Danny Carey (Tool).

Rush has since posted a statement via Instagram thanking the three above drummers for playing with them (and who wouldn't want to play with Rush?), jokingly adding "talk about being spoiled." And I'm sure the return was bittersweet, but with such talent behind them and friends surrounding them, it certainly seems like Rush was nothing but appreciative.

"For the first time since August 1st, 2015 we returned to the stage at the LA Forum, scene of the very last performance with our lost brother Neil. This time it was for the second Taylor Hawkins Tribute and sitting behind the throne were 3 wonderful human beings, who also happen to be spectacular drummers.. Dave Grohl, Chad Smith and Danny Carey…. Talk about being spoiled… but the best, yet bittersweet part of this whole deal is that no one would have loved witnessing that more Taylor himself. Rest In Peace Hawk, as we keep Alison, Shane, Annabelle and Everleigh Hawkins along with the entire Foos Family in our thoughts."

While the Taylor Hawkins tribute show on September 27 wasn't livestreamed, you can check out a handful of fan-filmed footage below. For those unaware, Rush played "2112 Part I: Overture" with Grohl, "Working Man" with Smith, and "YYZ" with Carey.
