“The current Time Machine jaunt is nothing less than a must-see.” – Hollywood Reporter
“Rush has not slowed. Rush has not mellowed with age. If anything, Rush is rocking harder than ever.” – Boston Globe
Burlington, MA – Anthem Entertainment and Zoë Vision are pleased to announce the BluRay/DVD release of RUSH TIME MACHINE 2011: Live In Cleveland. The DVD is an evening with Rush performing their classic hits and features the legendary Moving Pictures album live in its entirety. Released in 1981, Moving Pictures was their most successful album to date, certified 4x Platinum and features some of Rush’s most well known songs and perennial radio favorites, including “Tom Sawyer,” “Limelight” and the Grammy®-nominated instrumental “YYZ.” The film will have its Boston Theatrical Premiere at the Regent Theatre in Arlington as part of a national event on Wednesday, October 26 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 day of show.
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 concert filmed in the United States. The choice to record in Cleveland was a deliberate nod of gratitude to the first city to support Rush on its airwaves, as former WMMS DJ Donna Halper is widely credited for helping break the band in 1974 by spinning “Working Man.” The reinterpreted live version of “Working Man” was the encore closer on the Time Machine tour and is included on this DVD.
In addition to the 26-song concert set, Rush’s notorious concept tour videos will be included: The first short film, entitled “The ‘Real’ History of Rush Episode No. 2 ‘Don’t Be Rash,’” and the opening the second set video, The ‘Real’ History of Rush Episode No. 17 ‘...and Rock and Roll is My Name.’” The bonus material features outtakes from the short films, an alternate film version video for “Tom Sawyer”, and two rare pieces of Rush live footage from the vault: “Need Some Love” from Laura Second Secondary School with original drummer John Rutsey, and “Anthem” from Passaic New Jersey.
Anthem, Rush and Rounder Records have again selected D&E Entertainment (http://www.dandeentertainment.com), who theatrically distributed the documentary Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage, to bring Time Machine to the big screen and movie theaters across the US starting October 26. D&E will be working with Eagle Vision to bring Time Machine to theaters across the UK and other territories as well. Info on all screenings will be available at http://www.rushtimemachinepremiere.com. The big screen HD digital cinema presentation will give fans the best seat in the house and transport them from the theater to the front row of the concert.
In related news, Anthem/Roadrunner will simultaneously release a 2 CD live album entitled Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland as well as Moving Pictures: Live 2011 on vinyl and digital formats on November 8th.
Rush has sold more than 40 million records worldwide and garnered untold legions of devoted and admiring fans. According to the RIAA, Rush’s sales statistics place them third after The Beatles and The Rolling Stones for the most consecutive Gold or Platinum studio albums by a rock band.
This will be Anthem Entertainment and Zoë Vision’s sixth Rush DVD release. The others are: Rush in Rio, R30, Snakes & Arrows Live, Working Men and the latest, award winning documentary – Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage.
