Rush: New live DVD to be titled Time Machine

The new Rush live DVD now has a title: Time Machine.

Due September 27, the set captures the band's April 15 performance at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland for release on DVD and Blu-Ray. reports Time Machine will be distributed by Concord Records, the company that bought Rounder Records last year, and the last 3 Rush live DVDs were put out by Rounder.

The fan site goes on to speculate that, although the release date is currently given as September 27th, judging by past experience it's very likely that it will end up being pushed back into October or even November. But it looks like we will most certainly have a new Rush live DVD by Christmas of this year.

In a blog post from a couple of weeks ago, Rush sound engineer Richard Chycki mentioned that the "Cleveland DVD is underway. More details to be had when there are some...." Then, in a more recent blog post from over the weekend, he mentions that work on Rush live in Cleveland continues.

Rush's Cleveland performance of its Time Machine show was filmed as a tribute to the U.S. city that first played the band's music; the event marked Rush's first live full-length filming on U.S. soil. Cleveland is notable for being one of the very first U.S. cities where Rush performed, in addition to being the first city to provide American airplay.

Featured below is a fan-shot video from the Cleveland show.

The Time Machine tour continues in the home stretch as Rush have returned to North America this week for the final leg of shows; the full tour wraps July 2 in Seattle.
