From the announcement:It’s a big year for Canadian giants Rush. They’re celebrating their 45th anniversary, they’re touring the UK, and they’ve finally secured entry to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.I also spoke with the art editor of PROG magazine who indicated that this issue would be "...covering little known facts from their 45 years together (pre-Peart included)...and rare photos as well. We've spoken recently to Geddy and taken previously un-used material from recent Neil and Alex interviews with our sister mag, Classic Rock. It's a celebration of Rush as well as looking forward to the tour..."
In honour of the band’s unequalled musical achievements and their incredible bond with their fans, we’re launching a limited hardback edition of Prog Magazine No35.
It features 12 extra pages of Rush coverage alongside the 14 pages which will appear in the standard edition of the magazine.
The ultimate collector’s edition of Prog is available for preorder now and goes on sale April 17.
