New Rush DVD Pushed Back
The release date of RUSH DVD and Blu-ray titled "Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland" has been pushed back to November 8 from the previously announced October 25 (via Zoe Records). The disc will contain footage of RUSH's April 15 concert at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio filmed by the award-winning documentary makers Banger Productions from Toronto in Canada, who have received international critical acclaim for their previous movies "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey", "Global Metal" and the RUSH documentary called "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage".
RUSH's Cleveland performance of its "Time Machine" show was filmed as a tribute to the U.S. city that first played the band's music.
Cleveland is remarkable for being one of the very first U.S. cities where RUSH performed, in addition to being the first city to provide American airplay. This also marked RUSH's first live full-length filming on U.S. soil.
The "Time Machine" tour was an evening with RUSH, where the band performed its classics, gave a taste of the future and — for the first time ever — featured the "Moving Pictures" album live in its entirety.
"Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland" will feature the following track listing:
01. The Spirit of Radio
02. Time Stand Still
04. Stick It Out
05. Workin' Them Angels
06. Leave That Thing Alone
12. Tom Sawyer
13. Red Barchetta
16. The Camera Eye
17. Witch Hunt
18. Vital Signs
20. Closer to the Heart
21. 2112 Overture/Temples of Syrinx
22. Far Cry
23. La Villa Strangiato
24. Working Man
The full list of supplementary and technical specifications for Zoe Records' Blu-ray are still unknown, but the disc will feature a number of bonus materials, such as:
* Outtakes from the intro, intermission, and outro videos from the "Time Machine" tour
* Full clip of RUSH's 1974 Canadian Bandstand act in St. Catharines, Ontario
* 1976 black-and-white bootleg video of their performance in Passaic, New Jersey
