Rush Unveils Time Machine 2011 Live Releases

Rush: Moving Pictures Live 2011

New details surrounding the upcoming release of the Rush: Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland offers have just been released in a news story appearing in the Huffington Post. As expected, in addition to the release of the concert on both DVD and Blu-Ray, the concert will also be offered up as a 2-CD set (not yet available for pre-order).

Equally exciting is the special release of Moving Pictures: Live 2011 which will be available on vinyl and in digital formats. More from the press release:

Legendary rock band Rush has announced details for various releases from their wildly successful Time Machine Tour. On November 8, Rush will simultaneously release TIME MACHINE 2011: LIVE IN CLEVELAND’s full concert on Blu-Ray/DVD complete with bonus material. The audio companion is on a 2-CD set, and MOVING PICTURES: LIVE 2011 will be on vinyl and in digital formats. 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 album recorded at a show in the United States, and it’s a deliberate nod of gratitude to the first city to support Rush on its radio airwaves. The wildly popular tour featured a set filled with classic hits, fan favorites, and a glimpse into Rush’s forthcoming 20th studio album Clockwork Angels due out in Spring 2012. As a centerpiece for the concerts, the band performed their landmark album Moving Pictures live in its entirety–a first in the band’s long and illustrious career. Rave reviews of the tour included The Hollywood Reporter’s declaration that “the current Time Machine jaunt is nothing less than a must see…for nearly three hours, with intermission, Rush proved why it remains among rock’s elite live acts.”

The concert film will also premiere in theaters starting October 26th!

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 theaters across the U.S. 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 theater to the front row of the concert. VH1 will be airing a 2-hour concert culled from the footage as part of their annual Rushashana program on September 29.

We’ll have more news and pre-order links to the 2-cd set and Moving Pictures: Live 2011 once available.
