RUSH’s “Clockwork Angels Tour” concert film will receive a television premiere on VH1 Classic on Sunday, December 1 from 9 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
“Rush: Clockwork Angels Tour” was released via Anthem/Roadrunner Records on November 19. Anthem/Zoe Vision/Rounder will simultaneously release the companion DVD.
“Rush: Clockwork Angels Tour” was filmed and recorded in November 2012 at the American Airlines Center 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 ’80s 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 setlist 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.
Alex Lifeson talks to Phil Wilding about the whiskey fused conversations at Henson Studios, Vapor Trails Remixed, Dave Grohl playing him at the Rock Hall of Fame, Clockwork Angels DVD/CD and more on Prog Magazine Show. Listen online here: http://www.teamrockradio.com/shows/the-prog-magazine-show
