RUSH: 'Exit...Stage Left' DVD Release Date Reports Wrong

Contrary to published reports, Zoe Vision/Rounder Records "has no plans whatsoever" to release the DVD version of RUSH's classic "Exit...Stage Left", a representative for the company told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. It is, however, still believed that the "Exit...Stage Left" DVD will surface later in the year via another label.

In a recent interview with Billboard.com, RUSH guitarist Alex Lifeson confirmed that the veteran Canadian rock trio are planning on reissuing several classic live performances in 2006. To the delight of long time fans, their well-worn VHS copies of "Exit...Stage Left", "Grace Under Pressure Tour" and "A Show of Hands" will soon be replaced with DVD reissues.

"Everything's been remixed to 5.1, and that was the intention -- to keep it all intact, except for the remix," Lifeson told Billboard.com. "So it's available in surround." It remains to be decided if the releases will be made available individually or packaged together. "I'm guessing a box set — that would make more sense," Lifeson said.

Lifeson said he enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane while refurbishing the material. "It was interesting to see the development in the arrangements, and how our sound changed over the course of a decade," he said. "I definitely found it fascinating, looking at that. And how the stage show changed over the years — of course, [in] 10 years a lot of stuff changes. But it was a little fascinating to watch that, actually."
