Rush's R40 Live tour was the subject of a cover feature in the November/December, 2015 issue of Canadian Musician magazine. Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson were interviewed for the feature where they break down the R40 Live setlist and stage show, describing how and why certain songs were selected, how the videos came about, and their favorite parts of the show.
