There actually was a Rush 40th but it did not contain any extra music material. Just a box with some cards and a vinyl pressing with Moon Records replica labels. Nice package in it's own right but would it have been too much to ask for a board recording and maybe a replica 45 of Not Fade Away/Can't Fight It on some tie-dye vinyl or something equally groovy?

Would really dig a CoS 40th with a full headline show

You can Stream shows from the Rush Tour on ABC 1974, and The Very Best Of Rush broadcasting Live: Rare Gems From The Vaults: Volume 1. It's not bundled with the album but these are the best existing recordings from that Tour that we have.

Of all their albums, I was wondering who at this point doesn't have Moving Pictures pretty well covered.  I don't think a boxedxset would fly off the shelves.

well I thought the point was to release something new, like the trend we've seen with these amazing live tracks.

Was going to post this in a new topic, but decided to just put it here instead.  It basically fits.

As I post this, today is February 26th, 2021.  It's the exact 40th anniversary of my first Rush concert.

Thursday night, February 26th, 1981.  Chicago's International Amphitheater.  The Moving Pictures tour.

16 years old.  First Rush concert.  First concert.  There with my best friend, Joe.  His Dad drove us down there and spent the evening at a nearby bar.  Joe had introduced me to Rush about a year earlier.  Thank you, Joe.  I love you, man!

Sweet, Geddyleegenes. I was about that age for my first Rush concert.

Just to get geeky and peruse Wandering The Face Of The Earth: Tickets: $9.50 - $11.50, Max Webster supporting act. 9,854 fans joined you for a sold out show.

Just looking at that record sleeve again gives me the shivers. So many memories. It was the best f***ing thing I'd bought in my life.
Yeah that cover takes me back to a very different time in my life. Teenage years.
Equally happy to now, but very, very different.
The inner, sleeve man!  It was one of those cool heavy inner sleeves, not the cheap paper kind.  And those black and white time-lapse photos...
