Clas­sic Al­bums Live presents ‘Rush 2112’

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

Har­bourfront The­atre presents Clas­sic Al­bums Live: ‘Rush 2112’ to­day at 7:30 p.m. in Sum­mer­side.

Clas­sic Al­bums Live presents skilled mu­si­cians who recre­ate the great­est al­bums of the ’60s and ’70s live on stage – note for note, cut for cut.

Don’t look for cos­tumes and look-alike the­atrics at these rock recitals, just pure mu­si­cian­ship and songs that shaped a gen­er­a­tion.

Re­leased in 1976, “2112” is the fourth stu­dio al­bum by Cana­dian rock band Rush. It fea­tures a seven-part suite that con­sti­tutes a full side of the record, telling a dystopian story set in the year 2112. This al­bum marked Rush’s first real com­mer­cial suc­cess, even­tu­ally reach­ing plat­inum sta­tus. To­day, “2112” is widely con­sid­ered to be one of the great­est pro­gres­sive rock al­bums of all time.

“The sheer tal­ent and pas­sion the per­form­ers in Clas­sic Al­bums Live bring to their con­certs is just in­cred­i­ble. We’ve had this group in be­fore, and they are wildly pop­u­lar with our au­di­ence and de­serv­ingly so,” said Har­bourfront’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Kieran Keller.

The Clas­sic Al­bums Live band has per­formed at the Har­bourfront The­atre many times over the years.

The last time be­ing this past spring when they per­formed the Ea­gles’ iconic Ho­tel Cal­i­for­nia. The band is an au­di­ence favourite, and fans of Rush are sure to love the Clas­sic Al­bums Live trib­ute to one of Canada’s iconic pro­gres­sive rock bands.
