VIDEO: Rush preview R40 Live release

Rush have released the trailer for their forthcoming concert film, “R40 Live.”

Due November 20, the package presents the band live in concert over two nights this past June in their hometown of Toronto.

The set will be available as a 3CD/Blu-ray or DVD combo as well as standalone options for the concert film or live album.

Named after Rush’s 40th anniversary box set, “R40”, the tour may be the last one of its size for the group.

Bassist Geddy Lee and Rush manager Ray Danniels have both discussed the group’s plans to scale back the length of touring as band members approach their mid-60s in the next few years, with drummer Neil Peart wishing to spend more time at home with his family in California.

"It's most likely our last tour," said Lee. "I couldn't put it any more accurately. I can't say for sure. But it doesn’t mean we don't want to work together still, it doesn't mean we won't do another creative project and I've got ideas for shows we could do that don't involve a tour."

Rush were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
