Canadian rock band Rush is definitely on a roll.

Next, the group won both the Band of the Year and Album of the Year awards at the Classic Rock Awards in London, UK at the end of 2012.

On top of that, the band recently announced it would extend its celebrated Clockwork Angels Tour into 2013. Tickets went on sale to the general public on January 25, setting off a continuing wave of search traffic for seats here and overseas, said Felina Martinez at online ticket marketplace

“As we saw on last year’s tour, Rush has a huge worldwide following and it’s not unusual to see traffic spikes for the band,” said Martinez. “Because of the new cities, we’re seeing some of the venues starting to fill up quickly, overseas as well. Many of the concerts sell out closer to show time, but we still have a great inventory of tickets available.”
