Rush has announced that they will be releasing a 5-LP vinyl box set edition of their 2013 Clockwork Angels Tour live album. The set will release on October 11th and is now available for pre-order via Amazon and other online retailers. From the Rush newsletter:

This live 5LP set is pressed on 180-gram vinyl, and includes an etching on the flipside. The set comes packaged in a two-piece telescopic box with a full-color booklet, and a code to download a high-definition digital version of the album. The band recorded concerts in 2012 in Phoenix, Dallas and San Antonio for a live album, and this set includes all 31 tracks from those recordings. This vinyl set also features the bonus tracks from the original CD release, including a version of the classic "Limelight" that the band recorded during soundcheck.

Earlier this year the band released vinyl box set versions of both Rush in Rio and Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland.
