RUSH: Phoenix And Dallas Concerts To Be Filmed For Upcoming DVD

Canadian rock legends RUSH will capture the "Clockwork Angels" tour by filming in Phoenix and Dallas on November 25 and November 28, respectively. The shows are being recorded for a DVD release in 2013.

RUSH kicked off the "Clockwork Angels" world tour on September 7 at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire.

In addition to adding a lot of rarely played songs to their opening set, RUSH is bringing a string ensemble out on tour with the band for the first time ever in its career. Orchestrations provided by well-known arranger David Campbell were used on several tracks from the band's new album, "Clockwork Angels", and RUSH is recreating that sound during the current tour.

RUSH's North American tour will wrap on December 2 in Houston, Texas.

"Clockwork Angels" debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart, selling 103,000 copies in its first week of release. The disc marked RUSH 's highest chart debut since 1993's "Counterparts", which also entered at No. 2.
