Canadian progressive rock legends Rush won't tour anymore, not big tours anyway. Guitarist Alex Lifeson said that it was tough enough for them to get drummer Neil Peart to play last year's R40 tour. The trio has not discussed the state of the band beyond that tour. They could still play one-off shows or short runs in the future and could still record music but the future is uncertain.
The mighty Rush will release their R40 Live concert film later this month on November 20th. Until that happens, you can watch a performance clip of the classic song "Tom Sawyer" from the Canadian proggers, taken from this release below. "The Spirit Of Radio" and "Closer To The Heart" are also available here as a bonus.
Canadian prog rock legends Rush have revealed their first offering from the forthcoming R40 Live concert film — "Roll The Bones", a song from their fourteenth studio album Roll The Bones that was originally released in 1991. This "R40 Live" version of "Roll The Bones" was recorded in the band's hometown of Toronto on June 17th and June 19th during the sold-out shows at the Air Canada Centre on the "R40 Live" tour.
