Rush and Anthem Records to host invite-only Signals Atmos Listening Experience event in Toronto

Fri, May 19, 2023@11:15AM | comments

UPDATE - 5/19@5:00PM: The allotment of tickets for the event for RIAB readers has been reached - exceeded actually! Thanks for participating everybody! The answer to question #2 was B.J. Pratt and Associates and the answer to question #3 was John Young and Robert Crippen. I accepted any answer that was even remotely close, so don't worry if you were off a little. I'll be sending along the list of invitees to Anthem over the weekend, and they'll then reach out to the invitees individually with a link to RSVP with further details. The exact timing of that is TBA, but I'll be sure to let everyone know when I have more information.

In honor of the recent release of Rush's Signals 40th anniversary box set, Rush and Anthem Records will be hosting an invite-only Signals Atmos Listening Experience event at Complex Cinemas (10 Dundas Street East #402 Toronto, ON M5B 2G9 Canada) in Toronto a week from this coming Wednesday on May 31st. The event will include pre-show giveaways and onscreen trivia at 6:30, the show itself at 7PM, and a post-show panel discussion with Rush insiders. Although this is an invite only event, Anthem was kind enough to provide a block of tickets for rushisaband readers. So if you'll be in the Toronto area on Wednesday, May 31st and would like a chance to go, just send an email to rushisaband@gmail.com with the subject SIGNALS ATMOS and include the following in the body of your email:

Full Name: (e.g. Geddy Lee)
Email Address: (e.g. rushisaband@gmail.com)
Hometown: (e.g. Toronto, ON)
Number of Tickets: 1 OR 2

1) What is your favorite Signals track? (any song on Signals is the "correct" answer here)

--- YOUR ANSWER HERE ---

2) What is the name of the fictional architectural firm that designed the blueprint depicted in the original Signals album art?

--- YOUR ANSWER HERE ---

3) What are the names of the 2 Space Shuttle astronauts mentioned in the Signals track Countdown?

--- YOUR ANSWER HERE ---

Tickets will be given out on a first come, first serve basis, but you must include the above information (full name, email, hometown AND number of tix) and correct answers to the 3 questions in your email to qualify. Invitees will then be notified by Anthem prior to the event (exact timing TBA) with a link to RSVP and more details. Once the allotment of tickets have been used up, I'll mention it here. By participating in the ticket giveaway, you acknowledge that attendees are solely responsible for arranging their own travel and accommodations. Invitees will be granted tickets exclusively for the listening party. These tickets are free, hold no cash value and cannot be transferred to others.

Rush's Signals 40th anniversary box set officially released a few weeks ago and is now available for purchase via this link, or via Amazon and other online retailers. The set is the latest in a string of 40th anniversary box sets offered up by the band over the past several years, beginning with a 2112 set back in 2016. It is available in three distinct configurations, including a Super Deluxe Edition, an LP Picture Disc Edition, and a Dolby Atmos Digital Edition. To compliment the two official videos for the album's bookend tracks (Subdivisions and Countdown), the band released visualizer videos for the remaining six tracks in the lead up to the release which you can check out on Rush's YouTube channel here. There's also an unboxing video which you can watch here, and John at Cygnus-X1.net has scanned all the artwork and made it available online here.
