Looks essential.  According to Amazon.co.uk, it's not out until October, so I'd give it about a year.

Interested to read that Eric Hansen & Skip Daly are involved...

I've "known" them / of them both through the internet since my early years of RoIO trading. Both top guys...

Currently £22.75 at Amazon covered by their "pre-order price guarantee"

While an excellent book, it is just a book of  gig listings with sporadic pictures and some brief introductory texts.  A little disappointed if I being honest.

A bloody big heavy book mind you.

There was once a website dedicated to Rush tour dates and setlists, and on the face of it (I haven't seen it, but as described) this book is just an illustrated version of that, isn't it?

Robert Telleria's book, 'Mereley(sic) Players' , from 2002 has a section on set lists, tour dates etc. Although a cursory glance at the internet suggests that it contains a lot of errors (not necessarily in that chapter)
I've enjoyed using that as a reference but I would think this latest book would be the definitive one on this subject.

The cygnus site is the best - I believe Jon who runs it posts on here from time to time :
