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.
The bonus disc will include all eight songs from the LAURA SECORD SECONDARY SCHOOL show in 1974 which features original drummer JOHN RUTSEY. The recording includes two 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 disc also features five songs from the CAPITOL THEATRE in 1976, including the full, rarely performed, seven-part version of “2112” filmed in 1997, as well as footage from the band's induction into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME
