The R40 tour is the cover of the latest issue of "Canadian Musician" magazine.  They have an article that is an interview with Geddy and Alex, talking about how they picked the songs, etc.  Power Windows.net has the transcription of it-

Wow. They're not touring anymore, but it's definitely not the end of the band.

Hope abounds!

If you can stand more bounding hope, the latest Prog mag coming out next week quotes Alex on the cover thusly: "Geddy and I will get together and see if Neil's ready for it, and take it from there."

Presumably he's talking about a new Rush album for next year, and not a second leg for R40. :)

This was a good line.  They must be talking about TRF:

"Our fans are diverse, and they have periods that are their favourites. and they don't always agree," Lee shares before chuckling and adding, "In fact. they rarely agree. ..."

Lee takes over: "This whole tour was really driven by the fans," he says, reflecting on R40. "The design of the show, the song list, and a lot of the [video] content on the rear screen was all us saying thank you to our fans, because that's really the nature of an anniversary, in my view - especially due to the circumstances that this was our last tour, or potentially our last tour, so we really needed to say thank you the proper way."  :)

The Rush faithful have likely flagged the addition of 'potentially' to that last remark with a spark of optimism, and Lifeson puts a bit of fuel on that potential fire by adding, "I'm slowly getting used to the idea that we may not be touring anymore." :boo hiss:

Eeeek, I'm sorry.  There are spoilers in the article- I had forgotten that some TRF's are waiting for the reveal in the R40 video.  :o
