La Villa Strangiato - The Spirit of Rush announce Irish Tour

November 22, 2023

La Villa Strangiato - The Spirit of Rush announce a 2024 Irish Tour celebrating 40th Anniversary of Rush' Grace Under Pressure album. Dates include two new locations in Dublin and Omagh and a much anticipated return to Belfast where they have sold out this past two years running. Tickets go on sale on Friday 24 November at 9am!

La Villa Strangiato is a originally Italian project born as a tribute to Rush, mainly to revive their music from the 70s and 80s, formed by Gabriele Ferrari in 2010. With the help of musician friends, they performed their first show in Rome in March 2011, dedicated to the album 'Exit Stage Left'. After going from strength to strength playing around Europe and headlining Rush EuCon (the European Fan Convention) in the UK in 2014, and with Rush's 40th anniversary being recorded in 2015, they toured Europe, the production titled "Rush 40". LVS toured "Signals Under Pressure" and were invited to play at Rushest in Scotland, with original Rush producer Terry Brown in the audience. In 2017 the tour was a tribute to “2112” and at Rush EuCon they played with Terry Brown once again. 2018 was the “Stranger Spheres” (Hemispheres) tour and 2019 was “A Show Of Hands”. For 2020 they had prepared “Permanent Changes” but after only a few shows the tour was postponed due to the pandemic………..resuming from mid-2021 until the end of 2022. 

During that season the band will make a big change in the Line Up and in addition to the founding member Gabriele, will be made up of top musicians from the United Kingdom. The band will subsequently return on the road in 2023 with the DIFFERENT Men on STAGES tour where they will enjoy a great success around all Europe.....and expect the unexpected with a fantastic collection of Rush material from the new 2024 Tour CRush Under Pressure!!
