Rush has announced details of a new DVD release recorded on last year's Clockwork Angels tour. It will be released via Anthem/Roadrunner Records on November 19, Blabbermouth reports. "Rush: Clockwork Angels Tour" was filmed and recorded last November at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas, during Rush's highly successful "Clockwork Angels" tour. The eleven month-marathon world tour crossed North America twice and ventured overseas to Europe in support of the band's acclaimed 2012 studio release "Clockwork Angels." In capturing the tour's electrifying three-hour set, "Rush: Clockwork Angels Tour" pairs Rush classics ("Tom Sawyer," "The Spirit of Radio," "2112"), with a nod to the '80s RUSH era ("The Analog Kid," "Territories," "Subdivisions") alongside newly reworked arrangements specifically for the tour featuring the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble ("Headlong Flight," "YYZ," "Red Sector A"). The string section marks the first time the trio has brought additional musicians on the road with them. To showcase their latest studio release, the epic setlist also features nine tracks off "Clockwork Angels". Other highlights include tracks rarely performed and never before recorded live ("The Body Electric," "Middletown Dreams,") in addition to three separate drum solos by the incomparable Neil Peart. Beyond the incredible live performances, the DVD includes a 25-minute tour documentary, featuring interviews with all three members and exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage. Titled "Can't Stop Thinking Big," the piece offers a glimpse into the inner workings of the Rush tour machine and insight into the band members themselves. Other special features on the DVD include the trio of hilarious shorts created specifically for the tour as well as interviews and outtakes captured during their filming. Additional filmed sketches and a rare soundcheck performance of perennial favourite "Limelight" round out the exclusive offerings. "Rush: Clockwork Angels Tour" comes on the heels of Anthem/Atlantic's September 30 release of "Vapor Trails Remixed", a newly remixed version of the band's 2002 album "Vapor Trails" and 7-disc boxed set "The Studio Albums 1989-2007", which features every studio album RUSH recorded for Atlantic Records.

    I saw them a few months back... awesome stage (lighting visual) show. Hopefully they will do justice to the DVD relative to what I saw live.
    I saw them in Chicago and while I'm not the biggest Rush fan, the show was great, and them bringing out Lord Stanley fresh off the heels of the Blackhawks parade downtown was pretty wicked
    Oh yesss! I really wanted this and hearing the newer songs. I actually never get tired of listening/watching their live shows!
    They've put out a DVD for every recent tour... It's kind of becoming overkill, but whatever. I've already got like 10 Rush DVD/Blu-Ray's since 2000, so I'll probably pass on this one.
    0/10 terrible troll
    Not even trolling. Since 2003, they've put out Rush in Rio, R30: 30th Anniversary World Tour, Rush Replay X 3, Snakes & Arrows Live, Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland, and now this. I'm not shit talking them. I'm just saying that with 9 live albums and 8 live DVDs, this news isn't incredibly exciting...
    They have 9 live CDs and 8 live DVDS, 9 of which were released in the last 10 years. I love Rush as much as the next guy, but I'm not trolling. I guess it's a crime on here to say that I'm not incredibly excited to still not hear 2112 live in full... At least the set list is pretty different on this release.
    (My first response was not showing after I typed it, so I typed a new one... and then the first one popped up. I swear I'm not trying to repeat myself)
    Rush are releasing DVD's for every tour because they are all still that good. I think it means just as much to them as it does to that fans to have a DVD to sort of commemorate a special tour. Idk, just me.
    I'm more excited for the remix of Vapor Trails that will hopefully rid it of any loudness war issues.
