Legendary rock band Rush have announced details for the first offerings through their recently announced partnership with Roadrunner Records.  On November 8, Anthem/Roadrunner will simultaneously release a two-disc live album entitled Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland.
Captured in April at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena during the renowned trio's extensive Time Machine World Tour, Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland marks the band's first live album recorded at a U.S. show, a deliberate nod of gratitude to the first city to support Rush on its radio airwaves. The wildly popular tour featured a set filled with classic hits, fan favorites, and a glimpse into Rush's forthcoming 20th studio album Clockwork Angels.  As a centerpiece for the concerts, the band performed their landmark album Moving Pictures in its entirety -- a first in the band's long and illustrious career.
In related news, Rush is also releasing Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland on BluRay and DVD formats on November 8 via Rounder Records in the U.S. and Eagle Rock Entertainment abroad.  VH1 will be airing a 2-hour concert culled from the footage as part of their annual "Rushashana" program on September 29.  This fall, Rush will be returning to the studio to resume work on their highly anticipated 20th studio album, Clockwork Angels due out in 2012.

Right...RUSH has been passed up so many times that now it really doesn't matter, 'cause we the fans know how Great RUSH are. And we don't need The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to tell us that....RUSH has brought us Great Music year after year.

NOT AGAIN.....RUSH has been skiped over again and not inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. What is wrong with those snobs.....I mean were're talking about "RUSH" here after all. A Great Band which has earned the Honor.

Hi,I'm Jimmy Rios and I've been a RUSH fan since I heard The 2112 Album....I've been hooked ever since. And when my son was in his teens he started to listen to my RUSH Albums,and became an instant fan. And I've had such a great time taking them to alot of RUSH Concerts over the years.....Good Times

Rush – Icon (Mercury/UMe): Experience one song from each of the trio’s 12 Mercury albums, including “Working Man,” “The Twilight Zone” and classic rock radio staple “Limelight.”

Many years ago (when I was living in the city of Guadalajara), is when I heard for the first time "Tom Sawyer" on the radio. I didn't know about Rush before, but I became an instant Rush fan, and I remember later that same week, I went to buy the LP "Moving Pictures", I and of course 'til this day, they are my favorite band, and I agree with the rest of the comments, to be just 3 band members, they do excellent music, because of course they are amazing musicians at their best.

When I was 15 (in the 70's) I was a huge KISS fan...untill they came out with the song "I was made for loving you". Their attempt at disco put me off and a friend brought over an album called "All the Worlds a Stage" and I have been a fan ever since. It opened up a whole new world for me. I still love prog rock. Thanks Rush. You saved me from a world of mediocre music.
