VIDEO: Rush perform live debut of Losing It in Toronto

Rush performed the live debut of their 1982 “Signals” album track, “Losing It”, in Toronto on June 19.

The second of the band’s two hometown concerts on the R40 Live tour saw the premiere of the song and a guest appearance by violinist Ben Mink, who played on the original recording.

Rush’s 9th album, “Signals” peaked at No. 10 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than 1 million copies in the States alone.

Rush filmed both concerts in Toronto last week as part of their 40th anniversary R40 Live tour, marking the first time the band has filmed in their hometown in almost 20 years, dating back to a 1997 recording at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on the Test For Echo tour.

Prior to that, the group filmed a concert video and later released an accompanying album for the Grace Under Pressure tour in 1984 at Maple Leaf Gardens.

The R40 Live tour kicked off in Tulsa, Oklahoma last month.
