Rush Around the World
Rock band Rush are celebrating 40 years in the music business with the R40 Tour. Starting in May they will be visiting 34 cities in North America. Of course over their 40 years as a band they have performed in many locations around the world.
Rush Performances 1968-2015 is an animated map showing all of the band's live gigs in the last 40 years. The map tracks the band's performances in chronological order. At the beginning of the band's career their gig's are concentrated around their home town of Toronto. As their popularity rises they soon start touring around the Northeastern United States.
The timeline animation tool shows the number of the concert currently being displayed on the map. This is a shame as a time-stamp would have been more useful in showing how the band's reach spread geographically over time.
