Fri, Aug 3, 2018@10:10AM | comments

Rush's 2015 R40 Live concert video has been certified Gold by the RIAA in the Video Longform category. The 2015 live concert video was filmed during Rush's tour stops in their hometown of Toronto on June 17th and 19th as part of their R40 Live tour, and was certified last month on July 19th. Gold certification indicates sales of 50,000 or more units. Back in March Rush's 2016 Time Stand Still tour documentary - which followed Rush and their fans during the R40 Live tour - was certified Gold, and back in December Rush's R40 40th Anniversary Collectors Box Set was certified Gold, nearly 3 years after its release. The last Rush studio album to be awarded Gold or Platinum status was Roll the Bones, which was certified Platinum back in August of 2001. Thanks to Adam J for the heads up.
