Update: The official trailer for R40 Live is now online.
Last month we reported that Rush's upcoming live album and video, titled R40 Live, would be available on November 20th. Over the past couple of days, new information and pre-order links have been revealed.
The Rush Backstage Club has revealed the "artwork" and track-listing of both the CD and DVD/BD version of the live offering.
From the listing: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.Also, according to the Backstage Club, R40 Live will be available in several package offerings including DVD, Blu-Ray, CD, as well as a deluxe 2 DVD/3 CD set and a deluxe Blu-Ray / 3 CD Set.
Rush recorded and filmed R40 Live over two sold-out shows in the band’s hometown of Toronto at the Air Canada Centre on June 17 & 19, 2015 in the middle of their R40 Live 35-date North American tour.
R40 Live had the trio of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart, performing a career-spanning live retrospective, celebrating their 40+ years together. The epic live shows by the Rock Hall of Famers were captured with 14 cameras to present the band feature-film style.
