VIDEO: Rush rock Madison Square Garden

Rush rocked New York this past weekend as part of the band’s Time Machine Tour.

Rolling Stone magazine went backstage — and right in front of the stage, video cameras in hand — at Madison Square Garden, where the power trio roared through all of its 1981 breakthrough "Moving Pictures" and much more.

Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson sat down with RS’s Brian Hiatt to discuss the making of "Tom Sawyer," "Limelight" and other classic tracks.

Rush just released a 30th-anniversary deluxe edition of "Moving Pictures"; the package includes an audiophile surround sound mix, videos, rare photos, liner notes and more. The set is available in two versions: as a digitally remastered CD and DVD, and a digitally remastered CD and Blu-ray disc. Both feature the complete album and three music videos, "Tom Sawyer", "Limelight" and the previously unreleased clip for "Vital Signs," in both a 5.1 Surround Sound mix supervised by guitarist Alex Lifeson 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.
