VIDEO: Rush - Moving Pictures Deluxe Edition

Rush are dressing up a 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of their 1981 classic, “Moving Pictures.”

Rushisaband reports the DVD and Blu-ray versions of the album will release this coming Tuesday, April 5th, but the Blu-ray will only be sold exclusively through Best Buy for the first 30 days; other retailers will have the Blu-ray version on May 3rd.

A new video promo for the set has been released; check it out below.

The reissue of this seminal album will be available in two formats: (1) a digitally remastered CD plus DVD and (2) a digitally remastered CD plus Blu-ray. For this Deluxe Edition, the DVD & Blu-ray discs will feature the album and three bonus music videos, "Tom Sawyer," "Limelight" and the previously unreleased clip "Vital Signs," in both a stunning 5.1 surround sound mix supervised by the band’s Alex Lifeson using the original multi-tracks and in newly remastered stereo from the original analog master tapes.

At quadruple platinum in the U.S., "Moving Pictures" was the band's eighth studio album and remains its biggest selling release to date, highlighted by the group’s best-known track, "Tom Sawyer," as well as the hit "Limelight," radio favorite "Red Barchetta" and Grammy®-nominated instrumental "YYZ."

As singer-bassist-keyboardist Geddy Lee, lead guitarist Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart record their 20th studio album "Clockwork Angels" and continue their "Time Machine" tour in America and Europe this year--during which they will perform the entire album--Rush continues to stay true to the spirit that made "Moving Pictures" a classic.
