180g Vinyl 5LP Box Set Documenting 2012 Clockwork Angels Tour; Includes Epic Versions of Songs Rarely Performed and Never Before Recorded Live Alongside Newly Reworked Arrangements with the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble
Rush's highly successful eleven month-marathon Clockwork Angels Tour crossed North America twice and ventured overseas to Europe in support of the band's acclaimed 2012 studio release Clockwork Angels. The band recorded concerts in 2012 in Phoenix, Dallas and San Antonio for a live album, and this set includes all 31 tracks from those recordings. This vinyl set also features the bonus tracks from the original CD release, including a version of the classic "Limelight" that the band recorded during soundcheck.
In capturing the tour's electrifying three hour set, Clockwork Angels Tour pairs Rush classics ("Tom Sawyer," "The Spirit Of Radio," "2112"), with a nod to the 80's Rush era (The Analog Kid," "Territories," "Subdivisions") alongside newly reworked arrangements specifically for the tour featuring the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble ("Headlong Flight," "YYZ," "Red Sector A"). The string section marked the first time the trio had brought additional musicians on the road with them. To showcase their latest studio release, the epic set list also features many tracks off Clockwork Angels. Other highlights include tracks rarely performed and never before recorded live ("The Body Electric," "Middletown Dreams"), in addition to three separate drum solos by the incomparable Neil Peart.
