Rush To End 2013 With Live Album, DVD

Rush love live albums, and apparently, so do their fans. They’ve just announced their Rush: Clockwork Angels Tour album and DVD, recorded last year in Dallas. It’s their tenth live release, so a cynic might think that there’s nothing new here, even for the most hardcore fans.

Those cynics would be wrong. The album features live versions of every song on the band’s latest studio album, 2012’s Clockwork Angels. Another new twist to this live album is that Rush is accompanied for the first time by other musicians: a string ensemble joins them for all of the songs from Clockwork Angels. Additionally, they play on a few classics: “Dreamline” (making it’s fifth appearance on a live Rush album), “Red Sector A” (fourth), “Manhattan Project” (second) and “YYZ” (seventh).

The band also busted out some rarely played gems from their catalog on this tour: “Grand Designs,” “The Body Electric,” “Territories,” all make their first appearances on a Rush live album here.

And yes, they also do tried and true versions of some of their biggest classics, but if you’re a fan, there’s nothing wrong with hearing another live version of “Subdivisions” (making it’s fifth live album appearance), “The Big Money” (third), “Far Cry” (third), “Tom Sawyer” (seventh) or “The Spirit Of The Radio” (making it’s eighth live album appearance, more than any other song). Oh yeah, and there’s three Neil Peart drum solos on the album.
