Rush ‘Replay’ in July

Universal Music Enterprises and Anthem Entertainment have announced the UK release of Rush ‘Replay’ for 17th July 2006. Rush built its phenomenally loyal following on its legendary live performances. Even after more than 30 years on stage, Rush live on video remains a guaranteed hit, and they have the gongs to prove it. The DVD companion to the band’s most recent album, 2003’s Rush In Rio, is five times platinum (U.S.), and more recently, 2005’s R30, a DVD-only live-and-more package, is already triple platinum (U.S.). Now the band’s first three concert videos will be issued for the first time together and on DVD.

Returning to the Rush archive for this four-disc box set, Universal and Anthem Entertainment have digitally re-mastered the visuals, whilst founding member, guitarist Alex Lifeson, has mixed up brand new DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround versions of the original concert multi-tracks for the three videos which started it all, ‘Exit… Stage Left’, ‘Grace Under Pressure’ and ‘A Show Of Hands’.

Highlights include live performances of Rush classic hits, such as Limelight, Tom Sawyer and Closer To The Heart, plus 12 live tracks previously unreleased on DVD. Also included are magnificent, rare medleys of By-Tor And The Snow Dog / In The End / In The Mood / 2112 Finale and YYZ / The Temples Of Syrinx / Tom Sawyer.

Rush ‘Replay’ and also comes complete with a never-before-released audio CD soundtrack version of the newly re-mastered DVD, ‘Grace Under Pressure’, plus the stunning packaging boasts reprints of the original tour booklets for the three featured concerts.
