Roadrunner RecordsIt's a big week for Rush: Thursday night in Los Angeles, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and this Sunday, they're competing for two trophies at the 2013 Juno Awards, their Canadian homeland's equivalent of the Grammys. The legendary power trio is in the running for Group of the Year and Rock Album of the Year, the latter for their 2012 concept album, Clockwork Angels.
Among the other veteran artists who also received Juno nods this year are Canadian native Leonard Cohen and Rod Stewart, who are both previous Rock Hall of Fame inductees. The 78-year-old Cohen has garnered three nominations -- for the Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year and Juno Fan Choice Award honors. Stewart has received an International Album of the Year nomination for his best-selling holiday collection, Merry Christmas, Baby.
The Juno Awards will air April 21, live from Regina, Saskatchewan, with Canadian crooner Michael Buble serving as the host.
Rush is currently on tour in support of Clockwork Angels. Rod will release his new album, Time, on May 7, and starts a UK tour in June, with dates in Las Vegas to follow in July. Cohen is currently touring Canada; he heads to Europe in June.
