    I'll buy this, but does the world need THREE (3!) separate drum solos??? I don't think so.

    I wasn't wild about the CD, but I'm playing at a festival this Saturday, and will hang around
    for Fred Barchetta, a Points North (instrumental rock band) Rush side project.

    I don't know who does, but it ain't Rush. Marillion's got them beat for sure!

    I'm curious as to when the separate CD release will be listed. I'm going to go for the full blu-ray/CD package personally since I missed this tour and I'd like to check out that documentary (although I'm disappointed it's so short). But I know some people will only want the audio portion, so hopefully it's a decent price.

    Before all this, of course, we kick off the fall with the Vapor Trails remix, which I hope ships on schedule!

    Anyone have a problem with the sound on just about all of Rush's live albums? To me it sounds like they just plug too much crowd and air into them. Every time. It's a minor complaint I suppose but I always feel like they could be better.

    I would agree, the sound on many of their live ones seems to be a lot muddier than it should be. I recently picked up the "Time Machine" tour live album and it seems like it could have been mixed a lot better.

    I'm in, of course. Didn't see the tour because of ticket prices but the new album and songs they performed are all worthy of the Rush canon. Plus, the orchestra. Should be a good package.

    the cost of the DVD & CD's will be cheaper then tickets & fees. and you can watch it over and over. of course i'll buy it, but Rush sound too much like their studio recordings live.

    Some juicy details:



    AUDIO AND VIDEO RELEASES INCLUDE EPIC VERSIONS OF SONGS RARELY PERFORMED AND NEVER-BEFORE CAPTURED ALONGSIDE NEWLY REWORKED ARRANGEMENTS SPECIFICALLY FOR THE CLOCKWORK ANGELS TOUR;
    BLURAY/DVD INCLUDES EXCLUSIVE BACKSTAGE TOUR DOCUMENTARY, SOUNDCHECK FOOTAGE, AND TOUR FILM OUTTAKES IN ADDITION TO THE 3 HOUR CONCERT FILM

    Rush have unveiled details for their first new recording since being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year. On November 19th, “RUSH: CLOCKWORK ANGELS TOUR” will be released simultaneously via Anthem/Roadrunner Records on CD and the companion BLURAY/DVD on Anthem/Zoe Vision/Rounder.

    “RUSH: CLOCKWORK ANGELS TOUR” was filmed and recorded last November at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas, during Rush’s highly successful Clockwork Angels Tour. The eleven month-marathon world tour crossed North America twice and ventured overseas to Europe in support of the band’s acclaimed 2012 studio release “CLOCKWORK ANGELS.”

    In capturing the tour’s electrifying three hour set, “RUSH: CLOCKWORK ANGELS TOUR” pairs Rush classics (“Tom Sawyer,” “The Spirit Of Radio,” “2112″), with a nod to the 80′s Rush era (The Analog Kid,” “Territories,” “Subdivisions”) alongside newly reworked arrangements specifically for the tour featuring the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble (“Headlong Flight,” “YYZ,” “Red Sector A”). The string section marks the first time the trio has brought additional musicians on the road with them. To showcase their latest studio release, the epic set list also features nine tracks off “CLOCKWORK ANGELS.” Other highlights include tracks rarely performed and never before recorded live (“The Body Electric,” “Middletown Dreams”), in addition to three separate drum solos by the incomparable Neil Peart.

    Beyond the incredible live performances, the DVD includes a 25-minute tour documentary titled “Can’t Stop Thinking Big”, featuring interviews with all 3 members, exclusive and behind the scenes footage, and offers a glimpse into the inner workings of the Rush tour machine and insight into the band members themselves.

    And possibly your last... I just don't see this band releasing another album a few years down the road and embarking on yet another world tour. I truly believe this to be their swan song...

    The new album didn't really blow me away, but my biggest beef with these guys is the production on their latest discs. I'm just not a fan of the zillion-track big bombastic sound...by any band. However, I have a felling that seeing them play it live , with an orchestra, might be worth owning; and I'm always fascinated by behind-the-scenes documentaries, so I'll probably pick this one up.

    I usually skip the drum solo when watching a Rush concert DVD, but in this case I'm pretty sure they are 3 "shorter" solos worked into the middle of songs, as opposed to the usual single grand statement from "the professor".

    What's that? Has their appeal, ahem, become "more selective"?

    Rush has been the ultimate stadium rock band for SO-LONG (30 something years), I can't even imagine them playing smaller venues. Although, if they did, I would actually go see them. I am perfectly happy buying all their concert videos and watching it all from the living room. But I would never go to a stadium rock show.

    How do you know? Maybe you've been bad this year!

    I'm looking forward to this, as they skipped NYC again on this tour.

    Shrinking? Based on what? I saw them twice this last tour in the same small state of CT. Both shows were packed. Same as the last 2 decades, but there were definitely more woman and kids in the audience than there were in the '90s (my first Rush show was RtB).

    Did they? i haven't seen them for the past since S&A tours and probably wouldn't on account of them ALWAYS playing Jones Beach. No RCMH shows? That sucks.

    Of course i can only comment on the crowds in the UK . They're still playing arenas but are only half full !

    Bummer in the UK, but the arenas are still very full in the US and S.America (at least according to Rush in Rio).

    It was pretty much a sold out show in my neck of the woods.
