On November 8, Canada's legendary powerhouse trio Rush will simultaneously release a two-disc live record entitled “Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland” as well as “Moving Pictures: Live 2011” on vinyl and digital formats.
Captured in April at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena during the extensive Time Machine World Tour, “Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland” marks the band’s first live album recorded at a U.S show, a deliberate nod of gratitude to the first city to support Rush on its radio airwaves.
The tour featured a set filled with classic's, fan favorites, and a glimpse into Rush’s forthcoming 20th studio album “Clockwork Angels.” As a centerpiece for the shows, the band performed their landmark record “Moving Pictures” in its entirety – a first in the band’s long and illustrious career. For your viewing pleasure, “Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland” will also be available via BluRay and DVD.
“Moving Pictures: Live 2011” marks the first live recording of the band’s most successful album to date. Originally released in 1981, this year marks the 30th anniversary of “Moving Pictures,” which features some of Rush’s most well-crafted songs including “Tom Sawyer,” “Limelight,” and “Red Barchetta”. VH1 will be airing a 2-hour show culled from the footage as part of their annual “Rushashana” program on Thursday September 29.
This fall, the band will be returning to the studio to resume work on their highly anticipated 20th studio album, “Clockwork Angels” due to drop in 2012.
