Rush DVD & Blu-ray: “Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland”
DVD & Blu-ray: “Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland”
Release Date: 7th November 2011
“A blend of power, subtlety, soaring choruses and some of the most intelligent lyrics ever written…Let’s hope we haven’t seen the last of them” – 5/5 The Sun
“Canadian legends confirm their status as the world’s biggest, and best, cult band….Rush have never sounded better than they do tonight” – 5/5 Kerrang review of Time Machine Tour “Perhaps the coolest band in the world” – The Guardian
Eagle Vision are pleased to announce the BluRay/DVD release of RUSH TIME MACHINE 2011: Live In Cleveland. The DVD is an evening with Rush performing their classic hits and features the legendary Moving Pictures album live in its entirety. Released in 1981, Moving Pictures was their most successful album to date, certified 4x Platinum and features some of Rush’s most well known songs and perennial radio favorites, including “Tom Sawyer,” “Limelight” and the Grammy®-nominated instrumental “YYZ.”
Captured in April at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans arena during the renowned trio’s extensive Time Machine world tour, TIME MACHINE 2011: Live In Cleveland marks the band’s first live concert filmed in the United States. The choice to record in Cleveland was a deliberate nod of gratitude to the first city to support Rush on its airwaves, as former WMMS DJ Donna Halper is widely credited for helping break the band in 1974 by spinning “Working Man.” The reinterpreted live version of “Working Man” was the encore closer on the Time Machine tour and is included on this DVD. Rush brought The Time Machine Tour to the UK, culminating in a sold out show at the O2 in May 2011.
In addition to the 26-song concert set, Rush’s notorious concept tour videos will be included: The first short film, entitled The ‘Real’ History of Rush ‘Don’t Be Rash’ , Episode No. 2, and the opening the second set video, The ‘Real’ History of Rush…and Rock ‘N Roll is My Name, Episode No. 17. The bonus material features outtakes from the short films, an alternate film version video for “Tom Sawyer”, and two rare pieces of Rush live footage from the vault: “Need Some Love” from Laura Second Secondary School with original drummer John Rutsey, and “Anthem” from Passaic New Jersey.
Anthem, Rush and Rounder Records have again selected D&E Entertainment (www.DandEentertainment.com), who theatrically distributed the documentary ‘Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage’, to bring ‘Time Machine’ to the big screen and movie theatres across the US starting October 26. D&E will be working with Eagle Vision to bring ‘Time Machine’ to theatres across the UK and other territories as well.
Info on all screenings will be available at www.RushTimeMachinePremiere.com. The big screen HD digital cinema presentation will give fans the best seat in the house and transport them from the theatre to the front row of the concert.
In related news, Rush is also releasing the audio companion (a 2 CD set and Moving Pictures: Live 2011 on vinyl) via Roadrunner Records on the 7th November as well.
Rush has sold more than 40 million records worldwide and garnered untold legions of devoted and admiring fans. According to the RIAA, Rush’s sales statistics place them third after The Beatles and The Rolling Stones for the most consecutive Gold or Platinum studio albums by a rock band.
