RUSH Frontman Talks To Rolling Stone Magazine About 'Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland' DVD

Legendary rock band RUSH played its 1981 album "Moving Pictures" every night on its 2010-2011 "Time Machine" tour and bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee tells Rolling Stone it was a tough to pick one show to film for a DVD and CD release. "We
realized that we've recorded almost all of our DVDs abroad," he says.
"And we had never done one in America, and we noticed we were doing
Cleveland on the last leg of the tour. We though it was an appropriate
choice seeing as Cleveland's such an important town in our history. It
was the first city that was ever warm to us. We thought it would be kind of apropos to come full circle and do that particular show there."

"Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland" will be made available on Blu-ray and DVD formats on November 8 via Rounder Records in the U.S. and Eagle Rock Entertainment abroad.

Captured in April at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena during the renowned trio's extensive "Time Machine" world tour, "Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland" marks the band's first live effort recorded at a U.S show, a deliberate nod of gratitude to the first city to support RUSH on its radio airwaves. The wildly popular tour featured a set filled with classic hits, fan favorites, and a glimpse into RUSH's forthcoming 20th studio album, "Clockwork Angels". As a centerpiece for the concerts, the band performed their landmark album "Moving Pictures" in its entirety — a first in the band's long and illustrious career. Rave reviews of the tour included The Hollywood Reporter's declaration that "the current 'Time Machine' jaunt is nothing less than a must see… for nearly three hours, with intermission, RUSH proved why it remains among rock's elite live acts."
