    I just received an email this morning and the 3 Rush concerts are on their way for release in early 2002.

    Here is part of the email:

    Excellent news. I hope they keep a PCM track.

    If I'm not mistaken, "A Show of Hands" is from the "Hold Your Fire" Tour, which was the first rock concert I attended. I don't listen to Rush much these days, but I'll probably pick it up for the nostalgia factor, if nothing else.

    I saw that show at the now-mostly-vacant Capital Center in Maryland (fall of '87, I think). I remember the opening band came out -- I think it was the McCauley-Shenker (?) Group -- and the singer yelled, "Washington, D.C., are you ready to rock?" You could have heard a cricket chirp. It was a moment straight out of Spinal Tap. Two guys sitting a few rows in front of me stood up, gave this pathetic "woo hoo," then proceeded to bang their heads for the entire set. When MSG were finished, the two guys turned around and left. I'll never forget that.

    Rob, what's a PCM track?

    Anywaym, thanks for the heads up, guys. I most certainly shall acquire these products.

    I'm in the vast minority of music / Rush fans, but I really like 80s Rush, so Show of Hands will be cool.

    PCM stands for Pulse Coded Modulation. It's the same uncompressed audio format found on CDs and LaserDisc.

    Sounds like good news (Tho there are so many rumors right now, I don't know what to beleve sometimes).

    The latest rumors that I've heard.

    First single in January from the new album.

    Release date of album: March 12.

    The January rumor seems to be coming from radio stations, so it might be credible...

    Any new, confirmed news (read: not TriNet 'Net/fan boy rumors) about street dates for Exit . . . Stage Left, Grace Under Pressure Tour and A Show Of Hands DVDs?
    And what about Through the Camera Eye, dammit?! [​IMG]

    Still nothing on dvdpricesearch.com. They usually have things pretty far in advance. I use them for street dates a lot and they are pretty accurate.

    Just had to, unfortunately, gloat a bit and toss this back up to the top:

    Glad I maintained my skeptical stance on this one (see my post #11 above) since this, of course, did not happen.

    Looking forward to Rush In Rio in Novemeber, but still even more interested in Through the Camera Eye, Exit . . . Stage Left, Grace Under Pressure Tour and A Show Of Hands DVDs.

    Has 'Rush in Rio' been confirmed for November?

    If anyone has a different understanding, please chime in but it seems that record labels don't do press releases regarding street date announcements for titles the way the movie studios do. (And to the extent they do, they are not covered to the same degree by sites like DVD File and Digital Bits.)
    I could be wrong, but I don't think Atlantic has made an official announcement regarding the release of Rush In Rio.
    However, Ged has the following to say in his most recent post (made approximately two months ago) to www.GeddyLee.net ):

    Over at Musictap.net, it says the Rush in Rio release date is September 23rd. Cross your fingers!

    Thanks, Gwon.
    A small but significant amendment to my post #16: since Rush In Rio is being released by Coming Home Studios, any press release would/will not come from Atlantic Records.

    Hmmm, unless it's a particularly good performance I don't think I'd get the companion CD set. The DVD will do. I just wish it would hurry up already.

    I think Rush should do a tour strictly made up of obscure numbers that have never gotten much play (On the radio or from casual fans). I'm thinking of songs like Cinderella Man, Entre Nous, Different Strings, Chemistry, etc. I don't want a FIFTH live version of Spirit of Radio and Tom Sawyer. Geesh.
