Rush Performs on Colbert Report Tonight

No, not Rush Limbaugh.

Just got an email from the Rush people that the band will be on the Colbert Report tonight at 11:30 PM.

The AP reports that the band will perform Tom Sawyer, and that they have not performed live on television since 1975. That is incredible, but I guess it's true!

Here is a press release from Atlantic Records announcing the news.

It's not my first mention of Rush and Colbert, either - remember this?

Brilliant! I have a theory that Colbert is a true geek's geek (something I can relate too). For example, he grew up reading lots of science fiction and fantasy, and has attributed aspects of his dynamic acting and improvisation skill to playing Dungeons & Dragons as a teen. In that context, wouldn't surprise me if he was also a devout Rush fan too :)
