Veteran rock trio Rush has tacked on a new leg of North American tour dates in support of its latest Anthem/Atlantic album, "Vapor Trails." The group will pause briefly following a Sept. 28 show in Chula Vista, Calif., and return to the stage Oct. 5 in Mexico City. The new dates encompass an Oct. 22 hometown show in Toronto and run through a Nov. 6 finale in East Rutherford, N.J. Tickets for the Tampa, Fla.; W. Palm Beach, Fla.; and Atlanta shows go on sale Saturday (Aug. 17).

"Vapor Trails" debuted at No. 6 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 254,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. Latest single "Secret Touch" is No. 27 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart this week; first single "One Little Victory" reached No. 10 on the same tally in May. Album track "Sweet Miracle" will be the third single from "Vapor Trails" and will be serviced in mid-September to U.S. radio outlets.

As previously reported, Rush drummer Neil Peart recently published a book detailing his emotional recovery from the separate deaths of his wife and daughter several years ago. "Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road," which shares its name with a song on "Vapor Trails," is available from ECW Press.
