2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the release of RUSH's eponymous debut album in 1974. This superb collector's box set brings together live performances by RUSH from each decade of their career. It includes Rush In Rio, R30, Snakes & Arrows Live, Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland and Clockwork Angels Tour plus a bonus disc of previously unseen and unreleased live material stretching from 1974 to 2013.

To the delight of fans, the bonus disc will include all 8 songs from the Laura Secord Secondary School show in 1974 which features original drummer John Rutsey. That recording includes 2 RUSH originals, “I've Been Runnin'” and “The Loser”, as well as their cover of Larry Williams' “Bad Boy”, made famous by THE BEATLES. The bonus discs also features 5 songs from songs from the Capitol Theatre in 1976 such as “Anthem” and “Lakeside Park”, the rarely performed full, 7-part version of 2112 filmed in 1997 in their hometown of Toronto, “Lock And Key” from the Hold Your Fire tour, as well as footage from the glorious evening when RUSH fans got their beloved band inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

RUSH are renowned for the energy and excitement of their live concerts and this set brings together some of their finest performances. The 10 DVD (or 6 Blu-ray) discs are contained in a stunning 52 page hardback book measuring 305mm x 225mm with the 10 discs contained in 5 additional rigid insert pages each holding two discs. The 52 pages of the book are filled with memorabilia and photographs documenting 40 years of RUSH live in concert. This is the ultimate collection of RUSH live performances, beautifully presented.

Watch the R40 trailer below.
