Rush live DVD details update

Rush have announced details for the first offerings through their recently announced partnership with Roadrunner Records.

On November 8, Anthem/Roadrunner will simultaneously release a two-disc live album entitled "Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland," as well as "Moving Pictures: Live 2011" on vinyl and digital formats.

Captured in April at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena during the trio's extensive "Time Machine" world tour, "Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland" marks the band's first live album recorded at a U.S show, a deliberate nod of gratitude to the first US city to support Rush on its radio airwaves. The wildly popular tour featured a set filled with classic hits, fan favorites, and a glimpse into Rush's forthcoming 20th studio album, "Clockwork Angels." As a centerpiece for the concerts, the band performed their landmark album "Moving Pictures" in its entirety — a first in the band's long and illustrious career.

"Moving Pictures: Live 2011" marks the first live recording of the band's most successful album to date. Originally released in 1981, this year marks the 30th anniversary of "Moving Pictures," which features some of Rush's most well-known songs like "Tom Sawyer," "Limelight" and "YYZ."

In related news, Rush is also releasing "Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland" on Blu-ray and DVD formats on November 8 via Rounder Records in the U.S. and Eagle Rock Entertainment abroad. VH1 will be airing a two-hour concert culled from the footage as part of their annual "Rushashana" program on September 29.

This fall, Rush will be returning to the studio to resume work on their 20th studio album, "Clockwork Angels," due out in 2012.
