While Geddy Lee has been quoted as saying another tour doesn’t look good, the band is far from hanging it up.

“[The R40 Tour’s] intention was not a farewell tour; its intention was a look back and a celebration of 40 years of music. We happen to find ourselves in a very differing state of mind in terms of doing major tours,” Lee tells Paste Magazine in a new interview. “It doesn’t necessarily mean we won’t do another record together, and it doesn’t necessarily mean we won’t play another concert together—it just means that for the moment we cannot agree on doing a big tour.”

Lee tells the magazine that Peart just isn’t up to doing 3-hour shows anymore, but leaves the door slightly open for something on a smaller scale.

“You know maybe something will happen where we can come up with some other idea about how to tour,” Lee said to Paste. “But at the moment it doesn’t look good.”
