Rush's upcoming R40 Live CD/DVD/Blu-ray: details, cover, tracklist and pre-order now available

UPDATE - 10/8@12:19PM: They've also released an official trailer.

Rush filmed their back-to-back, hometown shows in Toronto on this past summer's R40 Live tour for a future live release, which we learned a few weeks ago would be hitting stores on November 20th just in time for the holiday season (read the press release). The Rush Backstage Club just posted all the various pre-order links for the package, which will be available as 2 DVDs, 1 Blu-ray disc or 3 Audio CDs - along with various combo packages and an optional t-shirt (seen here). They have also revealed the cover and tracklist as seen here:

CD/DVD/Blu-ray tracklist:

Set One

The World is .. The World is ...
The Anarchist
Headlong Flight
Far Cry
The Main Monkey Business
How It Is
Roll the Bones
Between the Wheels
Losing It (with Ben Mink)

Set Two

No Country for Old Hens
Tom Sawyer
The Spirit of Radio
Natural Science
Jacob's Ladder
Hemispheres: Prelude
Cygnus X-1/The Story So Far (drum solo)
Closer to the Heart


Mel's Rockpile (with Eugene Levy)
Lakeside Park/Anthem
What You're Doing/Working Man
Exit Stage Left

DVD/Blu-ray Bonus

One Little Victory
Distant Early Warning
Red Barchetta

CD Bonus tracklist:

One Little Victory
Distant Early Warning
Red Barchetta
Clockwork Angels
The Wreckers
The Camera Eye
Losing It (with Jonathan Dinklage)

So it looks like the main package will contain the Friday, June 19th show setlist, with One Little Victory, Distant Early Warning and Red Barchetta from the June 17th show as bonus material. The CD will also include audio for Clockwork Angels, The Wreckers, The Camera Eye and Losing It with Jonathan Dinklage as bonus material. There also will not be any kind of documentary included with the package, so the Rush fan documentary that was filmed during the tour will probably get released sometime next year as a standalone package. A digital version of Roll the Bones (Live) from the CD was released as a preview last week (Amazon, iTunes), and on Monday they released a preview of the Roll the Bones (Live) VIDEO online which you can watch below or on YouTube. You can pre-order R40 Live at these links:
