Rush have announced that they’ll release Clockwork Angels Tour, a live album and video recorded during their most recent tour, on November 19.
The concert collection was recorded at three shows on their most recent tour.
The Clockwork Angels tour was unique for Rush in that they were joined on a number of songs by a string section, a first for the group.
The setlist for the show is as follows (with the * indicating songs that feature the string section):
The Big Money
The Body Electric
The Analog Kid
Where’s My Thing? > Here It Is!
Headlong Flight* > Drumbastica
Peke’s Repose (guitar solo) > Halo Effect*
Seven Cities of Gold*
Wish Them Well*
The Percussor (I) >Binary Love Theme (II) >Steambanger’s Ball
Red Sector A*
The Spirit of Radio
In addition, there will also be bonus live recordings of the song “Middletown Dream,” “Manhattan Project” (also with the string section), “The Pass,” and “Manhattan Project,” as well as a soundtrack recording of “Limelight,” though it isn’t clear if these will be on the CD as well as the DVD and Blu-ray.
Along with the show, both the DVD and Blu-ray editions will also include a making-of featurette called “Can’t Stop Thinking Big,” outtakes, a behind-the-scenes video that features actor Jay Baruchel, the intermission film and closing film, plus “Interview With Dwush,” “Family Goy,” and “Family Sawyer.”
Though it does not, so some reason, include any of the footage from when they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame on April 18, 2013.
In addition to this live album and video, Rush will also be releasing a newly remixed version of their 2002 album Vapor Trails called Vapor Trails Remixed, as well as The Studio Albums: 1989-2007, boxed set of their the albums they released on Atlantic Records: 1989’s Presto, 1991’s Roll The Bones, 1993’s Counterparts, and 1996’s Test For Echo, 2004’s covers EP Feedback, 2007’s Snakes & Arrows, and the new version of Vapor Trails but not, oddly, the original edition. Both of those collections will be out October 1.
