[Rush Backstage Club: Rush - The Complete Tourbooks]

The Rush Backstage Club is now selling the complete unsigned Rush tourbooks collection for $149.99. Until now, they only had a limited number of signed editions available for $500. Now that they've sold these, they're offering the unsigned edition at a much more reasonable price. Here's a description from the site:

A truly original product, Rush - The Complete Tourbooks 1977-2004. This is a 400 page coffee table book with all of Rush's tour books to date, a total of 15 books. The books have been reproduced and bound together in a black, cloth-wrapped 12" X 12" book. Every cover of every book is printed on cover stock. The front cover is debossed in black and silver foil with the starman logo. There is a two-page introduction written by Neil Peart, detailing his involvement in the design and content of every Rush tour book going back to 1977.

Here is an excerpt from Neil's intro, "Whatever it took, I wanted those tour books ready for the first show, because they were important to me partly because they fell into my "works on paper" department, but more than that, because I liked them. I had often bought tour books at other people's shows, and kept them as souvenirs, so I understood the value of them to the buyer, and it was (and is) satisfying to see that each of ours was nicer in every way than the one before."

The complete list of tour books is as follows;
A Farewell To Kings
Permanent Waves
Moving Pictures
Grace Under Pressure
Power Windows
Hold Your Fire
Roll The Bones
Test For Echo
Vapor Trails
30th Anniversary Tour

Available only from The Rush Backstage Club.
