Rush has a lot to celebrate this year.  Not only will the Canadian prog-rockers be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 18, but they've just received two nominations for the 2013 Juno Awards, their 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 Leonard Cohen and Rod Stewart , who both happen to be 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 -- who, of course, hails from the United Kingdom -- has received an International Album of the Year nomination for his popular 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.

Meanwhile, Rush also has added a series of summer concerts to their upcoming North American trek in support of Clockwork Angels .  The tour leg kicks off with a June 21 show in Hershey, Pennsylvania, and runs through a July 31 gig in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Rush also has previously announced U.S. tour dates in late April and early May.
