Classic Albums Live: Rush – 2112

Presented by: Shenkman Arts Centre Presents

Saturday, December 2, 2017 at 8 pm

Please note that St. Joseph Boulevard will be CLOSED at Place D'Orleans drive until 8:20 pm on December 2 for Santa’s Parade of Lights. Patrons should access Shenkman Arts Centre by exiting Highway 174 at Place D’Orléans Drive and heading east behind the mall to turn left on Centrum Boulevard. All other routes will be closed.

Fans rejoice: Classic Albums Live is back in town with another recreation of rock’s greatest tunes, remembering a time when we would listen to a concept album from start to finish. CAL goes to great lengths to reproduce the best records from the ‘60s and ‘70s live on stage.

“We don’t want to change what people think about rock & roll, we just want to show them what we think about it.” – Alex Lifeson, (guitarist founding member) 1976

2112 is the sound of young men becoming world-class musicians. It was the album that echoed out of passing cars, school parking lots and Massey Hall. Rush were unusual. Early comparisons to Led Zeppelin didn’t stick. They were their own thing.

Canada embraced Rush immediately. The rest of the world soon got on board and Torontonians beamed about the hometown boys doing good. They became goodwill ambassadors. We loved and love them.

While rehearsing the album, it became quickly apparent to CAL that they needed more than a trio on deck. So they added two extra guitarist, a keyboard player, an orchestral percussionist and a stand-alone singer. It takes a small army of musicians to take on what the lads are capable of. CAL will honour the legacy of Rush the only way they know how: note-for-note, cut-for-cut.
