Neil Peart News, Weather, and Sports Update - Sep 2015 - "BubbaGram #1"

Neil Peart has posted a September 2015 update to his website entitled "BubbaGram #1."

The big news in this update is right at the beginning:

In recent months it became apparent that my experiences on the R40 tour in 2015 were much too vast and deep to fit into a couple of website stories. Plus I had far too many scenic and narrative photographs to fit in my usual format here. It would have to be a book.

Yet I did not want to neglect this forum and its audience--just "go dark" on everybody for the year or so it might take to put together a book. A fun solution to that conundrum might be . . . this! During the tour I had been sending occasional images of the day's travels to my circle of friends under the BubbaGramTM title, so I will continue that theme here. At semi-regular intervals I will post a photograph or two and an anecdote, to represent the work in progress.

My guess is we'll see quarterly updates from Neil.

R40 Live album and video set to release Nov 20, 2015

According to an email sent out to industry professionals from Zoe/Rounder Records/Concord Music Group, it looks like the R40 Live album and video are scheduled to release on Friday, November 20, 2015.

Here's an excerpt from the email (courtesy of Rushisaband):

Unlike other concert DVD's where the looks is the same throughout, this show has an extremely extensive setup that changes multiple times throughout the show (as the set list moves back in time, the stage setup reflects the band's stage setup from that period in their career.)
* Amazing value with almost 3 hours of footage!
* Includes multiple songs that have either never been performed before or never been captured on video

Rumor has it that this was the band's last large-scale tour, making this an absolute necessity for a Rush fan to own...

In addition, the first single from the album, "Roll The Bones (Live)," is scheduled to be available on Friday, September 25.

More info as we get it. Thanks to Rushisaband for the head's up!
