Rush announce vinyl debut release of Rush In Rio

Rush will release the vinyl debut of their 2003 live package, “Rush In Rio”, on January 18, 2019.

The 4LP 180-gram set captures the band in concert before 40,000 fans at Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on the final night of a world tour in support of their 2002 album, “Vapor Trails.”

Co-produced and mixed by guitarist Alex Lifeson and James Barton, “Rush In Rio” was originally issued on CD and DVD, but has never appeared on vinyl – until now.

The 2019 release is presented in a heavyweight gatefold jacket and comes with a code that allows the music to be downloaded digitally (see track list below).

The 2003 DVD package has been certified 7× Platinum in the US with over 700,000 copies sold.

Last week, Rush released a series of expanded 40th anniversary reissues of their 1978 album, “Hemispheres.”

The band’s sixth record featured the epic “Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres” – which encompassed the entirety of Side 1 on the original album and was the continuation of the “Farewell To Kings” track, “Cygnus X-1” – and the longtime concert favorite, “La Villa Strangiato.”
