Rush’s Mammoth R40 Anniversary Live Box Set Out November 17

Written by:

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 40 years since the release of Rush’s self-titled debut album.

To commemorate the band’s legendary career, comes R40, a mammoth live box set that’s loaded with gems, including a rarely seen 1974 live performance at Laura Secord Secondary School in Ontario, as well as the Passaic, NJ Capitol Theatre show from 1976.

Comprised of Rush’s five most recent concert videos, a comprehensive 56-page hardback book jam-packed with memorabilia and rarely-seen photos, R40 is the consummate volume of the band’s live performances that perfectly captures 40 years of their live performances from all over the world.
