Rush Clockwork Angels Live tour DVD to release in May
10:00AM EST | comments (17) |

UPDATE - 1/16@11:02AM: MusicTap has since reported that the DVD will NOT release in May, but instead will likely release in the Fall as originally anticipated (thanks Ryan):

MusicTAP is reporting that Rush's planned Clockwork Angels Live tour DVD will release this coming May 21st via Concord Records - much sooner than originally anticipated (thanks rtrushfan):

Another DVD planned for release is Clockwork Angels Live featuring Rush, planned for May 21 via Concord Records.

The report doesn't give any further details. Rush filmed both the Phoenix and Dallas shows this past November for the planned DVD release. Reports at the time indicated that the Dallas show would be the primary source for the film with the Phoenix footage used mainly as a backup. We hadn't really expected the release until the Fall, so this is welcome news. Last month Rush confirmed that they planned to extend the North American Clockwork Angels tour into 2013 via this message that was posted to

... Clockwork Angels 2013 in Europe is on sale now. And just because we had such a good time, we are now making plans for more dates in the spring and summer of 2013 in North America - so stay tuned for more announcements. Looking forward to seeing you out on the road again soon!

The mentioned official tour announcement should be coming later next week or early the following week from what I've been able to gather. For all the latest tour rumor details check out this post.

steve k - totally agree with you. I do LOVE this tours setlist. I like that they play what they want to play; i'm just grateful, when i'm able to, to catch them live to enjoy whatever songs they feel like bringing back. I would have liked to have seen some other deeper cuts such as Prime Mover and (of course) Jacobs Ladder as well to replace some they have already played on recent tours. BU2B would have been cool to see included on the DVD coming out, although i know they played it on TMT (and it was AWESOME live) which is why i was surprised to not see it played again. But to have CA in its entirety would have been EPIC!!

I'll go to the grave in defending my earlier statement that this has been the absolute bravest set-list they have ever done. May not be my favorite set-list, but certainly their bravest. I love they can get away what they are doing. They are breaking the rules simply by doing what they feel like doing and not reverting to the standard "greatest hits" sets.

Here's a thought for another covers album for the 2014 40th anniversary (with the new guy) tour: Rush's favorite (non-Rush) "progressive rock" epics. Can you imagine songs like: "Yours Is No Disgrace," "Awaken," "Close To The Edge," "Roundabout," "The Musical Box," "Lucky Man," "Thick As A Brick," "Nights In White Satin," "Fool's Overture," "Crime Of The Century," "Echoes," "Free Hand," "Wreck" and "A Whiter Shade Of Pale," etc. being reinterpreted by Rush?

#13 My guess is they had to trim things to keep the show under three hours.

I would also guess The Camera eye and Limelight got nixed for the same reason.

They did after all play it on the TMT tour.

I assume they filmed two shows so that all songs from both set lists on the tour will be on the dvd. That way CA will have continuity as well. I really wish they would play BU2B on one of the upcoming shows at some point, so we can see CA in it's entirety. I still don't understand why they did not play BU2B????It's important to the story and it rocked live during the TM tour!! I was really hoping to have a dvd of live CA beginning to end. Expecting the DVD after the next leg of the tour ends.

CD soundtrack as well, please!

From a business standpoint, you would think the DVD release would be at or near the end of the secong leg.

Yeah, ooooooh, yeah!

I'm a little skeptical of this release date. I think the early rumoured release date of the Time Machine dvd was Sept or Oct 2011 when in reality it wasn't released until December 2011. I'm betting on a later release date of Sept of this year after this tour is complete with some extra bonus songs added with a slightly different setlist....hope I'm wrong

I can't wait to own this live DVD. I loved this tour!
