Toronto, Canada (AHN) - Rush fans are rejoicing after a lull in action from
the band in 2005, taking nearly a year off to focus on guitarist Alex
Lifeson's trial in Naples, Florida and work on a plethora of upcoming DVD
projects for the end of 2005 and throughout 2006.
"R:30-Rush Live In Frankfurt," is to be released on November 15. The DVD set
will feature a full performance of the German show during the band's 30th
Anniversary Tour in 2004. It will also feature a full length documentary on
the history of Rush that has a running time of just over one hour and
exclusive lost live footage of the band from the early 1980s.
Drummer Neil Peart will release an instructional DVD titled "Anatomy of A
Drum Solo" to be released through Hudson Music on December 13. The DVD will
contain over two hours of Peart playing through numerous versions of drum
solos he has performed for the better part of thirty years.
Rush plans to begin reissuing their VHS catalog on DVD with the 1981 concert
film Exit Stage Left..., 1984's Grace Under Pressure Tour, and a performance
recorded in 1988, A Show of Hands. The DVD's will be offered in a special
box set and then individually.
If that was not enough news for Rush fans, the band has reportedly begun the
process of pre-production and are in the early stages of writing for their
new album which should be ready for release sometime in 2006 pending no
