Rush's R40 40th Anniversary Collectors Box Set (6 Blu-ray discs or 10 DVDs) hit store shelves back in November of 2014 and just last month was certified Gold by the RIAA, nearly 3 years after its release. The set included Rush's 5 most recent live videos at the time (Rush in Rio, R30, Snakes & Arrows Live, Time Machine, Clockwork Angels Tour) along with an R40 bonus disc, all contained in a 52 page hardback book. Each of those individual live videos had already been certified Gold or Platinum; Clockwork Angels and Time Machine certified Platinum in May of 2014, Rush in Rio certified Gold in 2004 and Platinum in 2010, R30 and Snakes & Arrows Live certified Platinum in 2010. The last Rush studio album to be certified was Roll the Bones, which received Platinum status back in 2001.
