Rush

The legendary Canadian power trio largely responsible for the term "math rock," Rush started out as a Buddy Holly-covering bar band before morphing into the Black Sabbath-oriented metal band of their self-titled 1974 debut. The band's style changed radically with the arrival of uber-drummer and main lyricist Neil Peart for the next and all subsequent records. Peart's influence helped Rush combine supernatural technical ability, mythical imagery and skin-tight body-suits for a futuristic blend of prog and hard rock. Their popularity swelled throughout the '70s, finally exploding in 1981 and 1982 with Permanent Waves and Signals, albums that yielded radio hits with "Tom Sawyer" and "New World Man," thus cementing Rush's place as the premier prog band of the decade. Things began to slow down starting with Grace Under Pressure and by 2000 they had pretty much fallen off the radar, despite continuing to draw huge crowds on tour. With 2002's Vapor Trails, they dispensed with the freaky keyboard sounds of their heyday and became a solid-rocking band, a style they adopted through Snakes & Arrows which came out in 2007.

  • R40

    Rush

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 2 hr 42 min

    All roads have led to this. Forty-one years in the making, the R40 Live tour took a very real journey back through time. Beginning with the grand design: a state-of-the-art stage set that pivots, rolls and dives, and brings Clockwork Angels in to bombastic, colorful life before marching stridently back in time (through theatre stages, a panoply of band and fan shots, the accrued memories of a life spent playing live) to a mocked-up school gym and the band playing there; a solitary bass amp set on the chair behind Geddy Lee, a mirror ball spiraling crazily above, casting thin rods of light like a light rain across the crowd, 'Working Man' coming to a shuddering halt as the band s beginning becomes their end. Rush recorded and filmed R40 LIVE over two sold-out shows in the band's hometown of Toronto on June 17 & 19, 2015 in the middle of what was rumored to be their last grand-scale tour.

  • Time Machine: Live in Cleveland

    Rush

    Year: 2015

    Runtime: 2 hr 36 min

    'TIME MACHINE 2011: Live In Cleveland' is an evening with Rush performing their classic hits and features the legendary 'Moving Pictures' album, performed live in its entirety. Released in 1981, 'Moving Pictures' is their most successful album, certified 4x Platinum, and features some of the band's most well known songs and perennial radio favorites, including “Tom Sawyer,” “Limelight” and the Grammy®-nominated instrumental “YYZ.” Captured in April, 2011 in Cleveland during the renowned trio’s extensive world tour, 'TIME MACHINE 2011: Live In Cleveland' marks the band’s first live concert filmed in the United States. The choice to record in Cleveland was a deliberate nod of gratitude to the first city to support Rush on its airwaves, as former WMMS DJ Donna Halper is widely credited for helping break the band in 1974 by spinning “Working Man.” The reinterpreted live version of “Working Man” was the encore closer on the Time Machine tour and is included on this release. In addition to the 26-song concert set, Rush’s notorious concept tour videos are included: The first short film, entitled “The ‘Real’ History of Rush Episode No. 2 ‘Don’t Be Rash,’” and the opening second set video, "The ‘Real’ History of Rush Episode No. 17 ‘...and Rock and Roll is My Name.'"
