Two Scottish RUSH tributes covering every era of the Rush repertoire including the entire Moving Pictures album. This Garage double bill will be all kinds of awesome. Grown men will cry - for one reason or another!
About the bands:
Moving Pictures- Rush Tribute:
“To emulate 3 of the highest musical calibre artists, with such gusto, was seriously impressive."
Power trio Moving Pictures typically play for over two hours covering all the classics such as ‘Tom Sawyer,’ ‘The Spirit of Radio’ and ‘Xanadu’ (with double neck guitars) plus some deeper cuts such as By Tor and later belters such as ‘Far Cry’ and ‘Headlong Flight’. In Glasgow on 19th August, their 90-minute set will include the entire ’Moving Pictures’ album.
Lighting director Kevin Cain will be running the show on the night - he worked for Rush themselves on that original tour.
Moving Pictures are regularly on the bill at Rush fan conventions, have recordings on all four ‘Songs For Neil’ albums and have performed for and recorded with Rush Producer Terry Brown.
2023 sees the band regularly touring around the UK and they've been invited by Neil Peart's family to play at Lakeside Park in Ontario in August 2023.
Excitement so thick in the MP camp…
Clockwork Angels – Rush tribute:
"Their playing was tight, accurate and energetic and their last song Clockwork Angels was scarily accurate. They quite deservedly went down a storm."
Clockwork Angels are a 4-piece band from Glasgow dedicated to reproducing the sound of RUSH. They've played several times at RUSH fan conventions North and South of the border.
Their incredible musicianship is matched with their energy and enthusiasm and they
will kick off the Garage show with a 60-minute set. Between them and Moving Pictures, songs will be played from every Rush album!
Let’s recreate that “Glaswegian chorus” so famously credited on the Rush live album, ‘Exit Stage Left’ for ‘Closer To The Heart’, recorded at the Apollo, Glasgow on that tour in 1981 !
