Rush Release R40 Live DVD
R40 Live saw the trio of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart perform a career spanning set against the backdrop of their 'devolving' stage design. The ambitious backdrop featured sets from the band's tours over the years, in reverse chronological order.
So while the DVD opens with the massive modern production of Rush's live sets from the 2000s, it closes with the bare minimalism and poignancy of 'Working Man' from their 1974 self-titled debut album. R40 Live was filmed across two shows in the band's hometown of Toronto during their 35-show North American tour earlier this year.
One of the highlights of the show is Rush's performance of 1991 classic 'Roll The Bones', which returned to the band's live set list after a decade. The rap portion of the song (it was the Nineties), features guest video cameos from Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Peter Dinklage, Chad Smith and more. Watch the trailer here.
