Radio.com To Preview New Rush DVD With Online Stream

11/12/2013
.
(Radio.com) Rush is about to unleash its 10th live release upon the world, and Radio.com has an exclusive preview of the concert film coming later this week. Clockwork Angels Tour will be out on CD, mp3, DVD and BluRay next Tuesday (Nov. 19), but for 24 hours starting at noon EST on Thursday (Nov. 14), we'll have six performances from the DVD available exclusively to stream on Radio.com.

The sold-out arena tour in support of 2012′s Clockwork Angels, Rush's 19th studio album, saw the Canadian rockers playing material not performed since the '80s, alongside a string section in many cases. For our exclusive preview, we'll show you footage of some of those rarely performed songs as well as two performances with the "Clockwork Angels String Ensemble."

The Radio.com exclusive performances will include: "Grand Designs," "Middletown Dreams" and "Territories" from 1985′s Power Windows; "The Body Electric" and "Red Sector A" from 1984′s Grace Under Pressure; and "The Wreckers" from Clockwork Angels.

For two weeks following our exclusive stream, two of the performances of "Red Sector A" and "Middletown Dreams" will be available to stream on-demand.

While diehards will never tire of seeing Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart work their alchemy onstage, the string section featured on the tour did receive a lot of attention from fans. The original concept for the tour was to start with a set of rarities, and then perform Clockwork Angels in the second set alongside the string section. However, it ended up that the strings brought new life to some older songs as well, including "Dreamline," "Red Sector A" and "YYZ."

"It's been kind of a secret dream for me for many years to record and play live with a string section," Lee told Radio.com. "Now, I had a bigger string section in mind, but when we recorded Clockwork Angels and Nick [Raskulinecz], our producer, suggested that maybe four of the songs would really suit a string arrangement. He brought David Campbell [who's arranged strings for Black Sabbath, Celine Dion, etc.] in to meet us. When the string section played 'The Garden,' we were all kind of tearing up, because it was kind of an emotional moment for some reason. And afterwards we said, 'Look David, if we ever want to do this on the road, would you be up for doing the string arrangements and helping us put a group together?' 'Yeah, totally into that,' and like a dog with a bone I didn't let it go." more on this story
