Apparently, I’ve been in denial for the past year about Rush‘s retirement, because I watched the band’s new documentary, Time Stand Still, which focuses on their 2015 final major tour, and now I’m crying.
In this feature-length documentary, the Canadian trio opens up about saying good-bye to the band as they know it after 40 years of life on the road, most of which was to sell-out crowds around the world. While guitarist Alex Lifeson feels like it never seems like right time to end things, and drummer Neil Peart wants to quit while they’re ahead (and before his ability to perform is diminished), it’s clear that singer/bassist Geddy Lee was not ready to go.
In conjunction with Rush celebrating their 40th anniversary with a tour this year, a limited edition hologram vinyl of the album 2112 will be released on March 17, 2015, and is available for pre-order right now. (Purchase of the vinyl comes with a FREE MP3 version of this album.)
Check out the sneak peek video of the vinyl in action here below.
Rush, the Canadian power trio that’s been going at it for over four decades now and is celebrating a milestone this year with the 40th Anniversary of their self-titled debut album, is releasing a 10 DVD/6 Blu-ray set of live performances, which span those 40 years, from a high school concert with the original drummer John Rutsey, right up to their current global domination on the stage.
The box set, entitled R40 (which is a continuum of their successful R30 tour and DVD sets a decade ago), will be released on November 11, 2014 and spans the entire Rush timeline, and there are more than a couple of aces in the hole.
Check out the trailer for R40 and more details here below.
As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deals for February 2014, the MP3 version of Rush’s Spirit Of Radio: Greatest Hits (1974-1987) is on sale for only $5. If you’d like a physical copy of Spirit Of Radio: Greatest Hits, the CD is available for $8.49 and is an “AutoRip,” which means it includes a free MP3 version of the album that you can access immediately.
This hits album, which was released 11 years ago today on February 11, 2003, contains 16 classic songs from Rush, which is my favorite band in the world, so I can go on and on about how every song in this collection is amazing and worth having, but allow me to name just a few: there’s the hits – “Tom Sawyer,” “The Spirit Of Radio,” and “Limelight,” as well as “Working Man,” “Subdivisions,” and “Fly By Night.”
