RUSH: Hershey Footage Available

Fan-filmed video footage of RUSH's April 8, 2011 concert in Hershey, Pennsylvania can be viewed below.

RUSH released a 30th-anniversary deluxe edition of its 1981 classic, "Moving Pictures", on April 5. The package includes an audiophile surround sound mix, music videos, rare photos, liner notes and more. The set is available in two versions: as a digitally remastered CD and DVD, and a digitally remastered CD and Blu-ray disc. Both feature the complete album and three music videos, "Tom Sawyer", "Limelight" and the previously unreleased clip for "Vital Signs", in both a 5.1 Surround Sound mix supervised by guitarist Alex Lifeson and in newly remastered stereo from the original analog master tapes.

The audiophile mix is said to provide the listener with the closest experience one can have to what the artists heard in the studio.

"Moving Pictures" remains RUSH's biggest album to date, while "Tom Sawyer" remains their best-known song. Lifeson recalled for The Pulse Of Radio the impact the record had on the Canadian band's career at the time. "That took us up to the next level," he said. "After the release of that album, we were headlining everywhere we were going, and, you know, our audiences increased by a large percentage. And it just gave us that much of a push forward into what was coming."

RUSH has been playing the "Moving Pictures" album live in its entirety on the band's current "Time Machine" tour.

The group has also been working on its 20th studio album, "Clockwork Angels", which is tentatively due for release in the spring of 2012.
