Universal Music Canada has announced that Rhino/Universal will release the vinyl debut of Rush‘s 2003 album, Rush In Rio, on January 18.
The vinyl version will include all the 29 songs that the Canadian trio performed in front of the 40,000-strong crowd at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracanã Stadium on the final night of its “Vapor Trails Tour.”
Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson recalled the classic performance in a press release.
“In all the years of touring, few gigs matched the energy we witnessed from the Rio audience. Throughout the night, they sang along to every song, which was quite a feat considering English is not so commonly spoken there. They even sang robustly during ‘YYZ’, and that’s an instrumental,” said Lifeson, who is currently working on a new project with drummer Marco Minnemann.
