Rush Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland DVD/Blu-ray details, bonus features

Mon, Aug 15, 2011@7:33PM | comments removed/disabled

UPDATE - 8/16@12:22PM: Here's a story from Cleveland ABC news affiliate WEWS covering the DVD release (thanks RushFanForever). No new information but it's nice to see the DVD getting some press.

Rush's upcoming live DVD/Blu-ray of their April 15th, 2011 performance in Cleveland, Ohio is titled Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland and is slated for release on Tuesday, October 25th (DVD, Blu-ray). Up until this point we only knew the title, the release date, that it was directed by Rush documentary filmmakers Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen, and engineered by Rich Chycki. But just recently some more details along with the cover art were posted to the Amazon UK listing for the DVD:

Rush's Time Machine shows in 2010 / 11 were one of the most anticipated tours ever. Celebrating 30 years since the 1981 release of their classic bestselling album Moving Pictures the band performed the entire album live for the first time as the centrepiece of the concerts. The shows also featured favourite tracks from across their lengthy career and two new songs expected to feature on their next studio album. As ever the concerts were a visual feast and sounded great with the band playing at the top of their form. Reviews for the tour have been amazing from both fans and critics alike and this DVD release is guaranteed to appeal to Rush fans everywhere. Bonus Features Alternative ending for The Real History Of Rush: Episode 2 ; Outtakes from History Of Rush: Episodes 2 & 17 ; Outtakes from I Still Love You Man ; Live from Laura Secord Secondary School (full clip from BLTS); Live from Passaic, NJ (full clip from BLTS).

So the bonus features will consist of outtakes from the intro, intermission and outro videos from the Time Machine Tour along with the full clip of the Canadian Bandstand gig that Rush played at Laura Secord High School in St. Catharines, ON in 1974 with original drummer John Rutsey on drums, portions of which were included in the Rush documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage. It's not clear whether this would just be the same 2 clips of Working Man and Best I Can that were also included as extras in the documentary, or if it will include the entire show (or more unreleased footage at least). The bonus features will also include some of Rush's 1976 black and white bootleg video of their performance in Passaic, NJ. Again, it's not clear what full clip means in this context. The DVD/Blu-ray is also listed as being region free and with a running time of 164 minutes. The cover art is the familiar Time Machine Tour design with the text Live in Cleveland printed over the countdown timer which is set to 2011. You can pre-order your copy at Amazon (DVD, Blu-ray). Thanks to RushFanForever for the heads up.
