Rush revive the Spirit Of Radio

Exclusive: Rush release a live version of their 1980 classic

Rush have released a live version of Spirit Of Radio. It's taken from the band's forthcoming R40 package, filmed at the Air Canada Centre in the band’s hometown of Toronto in June.

The R40 set includes a number of tracks that have never been played live before, or never previously filmed. It celebrates the band's career in reverse-chronological order, taking the audience backwards through time from 2012's The Anarchist to Working Man, performed as it was in 1974.  

R40 is available in a number of different formats, and can be pre-ordered now. Purchasers will be entered into a draw to attend a live screening of the film at The Gibson Rooms in London, hosted by Prog Magazine editor Jerry Ewing. 

Rush have previously released videos of Roll The Bones and Closer To The Heart from R40. Drummer Neil Peart has revealed that Clockwork Lives, his follow up to his 2014 novel Clockwork Angels, will be published on November 20
