RUSH’s “The Spirit Of Radio” From “R40 Live” Concert Film

Canadian rock legends RUSH will release their “R40 Live” concert film in November.

A performance clip of the song “The Spirit Of Radio“, taken from “R40 Live“, can be seen above.

Forty-one years in the making, RUSH‘s “R40 Live” tour took a very real journey back through time. Beginning with the grand design: a state-of-the-art stage set that pivots, rolls and dives, and brings “Clockwork Angels” in to bombastic, colorful life before marching stridently back in time (through theatre stages, a panoply of band and fan shots, the accrued memories of a life spent playing live) to a mocked-up school gym and the band playing there; a solitary bass amp set on the chair behind Geddy Lee, a mirror ball spiraling crazily above, casting thin rods of light like a light rain across the crowd, “Working Man” coming to a shuddering halt as the band’s beginning becomes their end.

RUSH recorded and filmed “R40 Live” over two sold-out shows in the band’s hometown of Toronto at the Air Canada Centre on June 17 and June 19, 2015 in the middle of their “R40 Live” 35-date North American tour.

R40 Live” had the trio of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart, performing a career-spanning live retrospective, celebrating their 40-plus years together. The epic live shows by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Famers were captured with 14 cameras to present the band feature-film style.

R40 Live” audio was produced by RUSH and David Botrill, and mixed by David Botrill; the film was directed by Dale Heslip, and produced by Allan Weinrib. The live photograph on the cover of “R40” was shot by baseball Hall Of Famer Randy Johnson, who captured the band in a rare moment when both Geddy Lee and Alex LIfeson were on Neil Peart‘s drum kit riser.

R40 Live” will be released on November 20, 2015, and will be available in the following configurations:

* 3-CD/1 Blu-ray set
* 3-CD/1 DVD set
* 3-CD set (audio only)
* Single-disc Blu-ray
* Single-disc DVD
