Rush are premiering a performance of their 1981 classic, “Tom Sawyer”, as a preview to the forthcoming “R40 Live” release.
The lead single from the group’s eighth album “Moving Pictures” reached No. 44 on the US Billboard Hot 100 while the project became the band’s second US Top 5 record when it peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
Due November 20, “R40 Live” presents Rush live in concert in their hometown of Toronto over two nights this past June. The shows at the Air Canada Centre marked the first time the group have filmed in their hometown in almost 20 years.
Mixed by David Botrill (Tool, Muse), the new live release is named after Rush’s 40th anniversary box set, “R40.”
“Tom Sawyer” is the fifth track previewed from the package, following “Roll The Bones”, “Jacob’s Ladder”, “Closer To The Heart” and “The Spirit Of Radio.”
“R40 Live” will be available as a 3CD/Blu-ray or DVD set as well as standalone options for the concert film or live album.
