||RUSH IN FULL FLIGHT: A FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM
15th December 2016
'Rush In Full Flight' is a fully independent publication, a collection of largely, previously unpublished photos of Rush in full flight, taken during the band's early UK tours.
All the photos were taken between 1977-80 over five different gigs in Liverpool, Manchester and Coventry. Taking in the band's first UK tour in 1977, following the release of the double live 'All The World's A Stage' album that paved the way for the Canadian trio to tour outside of North America for the first time.
The bulk of the images come from the 'Hemispheres' tour, as well the 'Permanent Waves' tour. Although many Rush photos from the UK around this time emanate from performances at London's Hammersmith Odeon, all the photos in this collection were taken at Manchester's Apollo Theatre, the Liverpool Empire and Coventry Theatre.
The book includes comments from the photographer plus additional text from rock author Jerry Bloom who wrote the 2005 publication 'Rush 1974-1981'. The array of photos sees the band move and evolve during an extensive three year period.
This full colour, hardback book sits neatly incased in foam within the aluminium flight case and is a beautiful addition to any Rush collection. 'Rush In Full Flight' offers a unique opportunity for Rush fans to own an exclusive item that fully reflects the band during a classic era and is bound to increase in value due to its limited nature.
This strictly limited edition book comes with a set of four prints perfect for framing: One each of Geddy, Alex and Neil and one group photo. It also includes a pack of ten postcards and five greeting cards all with the book's cover image on them.
With Neil Peart inferring that he has retired from touring, 'Rush In Full Flight' will hopefully soften the blow for fans, and all for the price of a gig ticket.
Orders will start being dispatched 20th January 2017 so pre-order now and be certain of getting this future collector's item.
