About the Movie
'TIME MACHINE 2011: Live In Cleveland' is an evening with Rush performing their classic hits and features the legendary 'Moving Pictures' album, performed live in its entirety. Released in 1981, 'Moving Pictures' is their most successful album, certified 4x Platinum, and features some of the band's most well known songs and perennial radio favorites, including “Tom Sawyer,” “Limelight” and the Grammy®-nominated instrumental “YYZ.” Captured in April, 2011 in Cleveland during the renowned trio’s extensive world tour, 'TIME MACHINE 2011: Live In Cleveland' marks the band’s first live concert filmed in the United States. The choice to record in Cleveland was a deliberate nod of gratitude to the first city to support Rush on its airwaves, as former WMMS DJ Donna Halper is widely credited for helping break the band in 1974 by spinning “Working Man.” The reinterpreted live version of “Working Man” was the encore closer on the Time Machine tour and is included on this release. In addition to the 26-song concert set, Rush’s notorious concept tour videos are included: The first short film, entitled “The ‘Real’ History of Rush Episode No. 2 ‘Don’t Be Rash,’” and the opening second set video, "The ‘Real’ History of Rush Episode No. 17 ‘...and Rock and Roll is My Name.'"
Probably the best concert video I've ever seen and the best concert I've never been to! I've always been a big Rush fan but this one put me over the top! Even if you've been a marginal Rush fan, you're gonna be hooked after this concert video! This is over 2-1/2 hours of sheer genius. Anyone one of these guys have more talent in a single finger than all of the so-called rap/hip-hop "artists" of today! Sound quality and visual effects are great! Can't say enough great things about this video!
A Vision Realized
I've been to Rush shows since Grace Under Pressure. The Time Machine Tour is an a complete Artistic vision realized. There is not one detail they missed in bringing their show to the stage. It is gratifying to see the boys at their best and having fun. I was impressed with a more minimal light show, focusing more on the music and overall presentation. And of course great to see the Camera Eye live finally. Rash Rules!
The Best Rock Band Ever
I've been listening to Rush since my first show in Seattle 1976. I've seen 'em 6 or 8 times now over the years. These are true musicians! Saw the Time Machine Tour in Stockholm Sweden this last year. When will the "R&R Hall of Shame" ever open their eyes and vote them in. Great band, enjoy it!
