Rush hit the road this year for their “R40” tour – celebrating 40 years as a band. Each concert was a major production too: elaborate sets and the band starting with their newest work – Clockwork Angels – and moving back in time through their catalog. As they worked back, sets and equipment changed to match the time.
Now they’ve released R40 Live – a multi-format release of their concerts in their hometown of Toronto on June 17 & 19, 2015 in the middle of what was rumored to be their last grand-scale tour.
Here is a clip from that release, with Geddy Lee sporting his double-neck Rickenbacker on “Xanadu”. Oh that tone.
