Rush Unveil 'Clockwork Angels' Live Release
Published Sep 16, 2013While Rush's live discography may not be as prolific as their studio output, it does number in the double digits and will receive yet another title this fall via the release of Rush: Clockwork Angels Tour. The concert set arrives as CD and DVD/Blu-ray releases November 19 via Anthem/Roadrunner/Zoe Vision.
As the title implies, the concert set was recorded during the trio's tour behind their 2012 LP Clockwork Angels. The show in question took place last November at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, TX, and features newer tracks mixed in with classics like "Subdivisions" and "Tom Sawyer."
For a number of the performances, the trio were joined by the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble, who added a symphonic edge to tracks like "YYZ" and more recent cuts off Clockwork Angels. The set also features three separate drum solos from the mighty Neal Peart.
In addition to the concert performance, the DVD/Blu-ray release feature a documentary titled Can't Stop Thinking Big, behind-the-scenes footage, short films prepped for the tour and interviews. You'll find the details down below.
Ahead of Rush: Clockwork Angels Tour, Rush will issue a remixed version of their 2002 set Vapor Trails on September 30.
