Live In Concert: Rush
Rush are the headliners this week on Live in Concert with a show recorded live just outside of Chicago in Tinley Park, Illinois in 1997.
One of the greatest power trios of all time, Rush was electrifying on stage. Not known for choreographed dance moves or excess showmanship, these guys let the talent do the talking. You'll hear a great set recorded live during the Test for Echo tour in 1997, this Saturday night on Live in Concert.
More than 40 million records sold worldwide. Countless sold-out tours. A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Officers of the Order of Canada. And that's all very nice. But for these three guys, it's all about the music, their friendship, and the fans.
After releasing their 16th studio album, “Test For Echo,” Rush hit the road for a
major North American tour. It started in October of ’96 and finished up on the 4th
of July, 1997. In all, there were 2 legs and 68 concerts. This weekend, we’ll hear
a performance from the 2nd leg of that tour- it was June 14th, 1997 at the
Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Tinley Park, Illinois, just outside of Chicago. Listen for the memorable hits "Tom Sawyer," "Limelight," "Closer to the Heart," "The Spirit of Radio," and fan favorites like "The Trees," and "2112 Overture."
The legendary Alice Cooper is also on the bill, with his three biggest records recorded at a show in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in 1996. We've got Bon Jovi with "You Give Love a Bad Name," and "Bad Medicine" from London's Wembley Stadium in 1995 and a Def Leppard recording from perhaps their biggest year, 1988, on the mammoth Hysteria tour.
Live concerts are not yet on the calendar, so enjoy another round of great performances form the vault this week on Live in Concert: Saturday night at 8, exclusively on Kalamazoo's Rock Station 107.7 RKR.
