Rush Release Video With Footage From R40 Tour Opening Night

(Classic Rock) Rush have released a teaser video shot during the first show of their R40 tour - likely to be their last-ever large-scale road trip. The run of North American shows started in Tulsa, Oklahoma on May 8, where frontman Geddy Lee told the crowd: "We're celebrating way too many years of music."

The show extended to two sets and an encore, totalling 24 songs, a drum solo and four video features, and included material the band hadn't performed in years.

Confirming the tour earlier this year, Rush described it as "most likely their last tour of this magnitude." Manager Ray Danniels later said it was "between possible and probable" that it wouldn't be followed with anything similar. Check out the video and read the show's setlist here.
