Posted Tue Sep 23, 2008 at 10:00 AM PDT by Peter Bracke

Classic rockers Rush are set to debut their first-ever concert Blu-ray release with the late-November release of 'Snakes & Arrows Live.'

Marking the next-gen debut of indie Zoe Vision (in association with Anthem Entertainment) the three-disc 'Rush: Snakes & Arrows Live' will debut on November 25, day-and-date with the standard DVD. Captured entirely with HD cameras during a stop on the band's recent world tour, 'Snakes & Arrows' will include over two dozen of the band's classic hits.

Tech specs will see the complete concert spread across two Blu-ray discs, presented in 1080p video (1.78:1) with English PCM 5.1 Surround and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround audio options.

Extras on the third disc include a four-song "bootleg" mini-concert, the "What's That Smell?" featurette, outtakes, alternate takes of songs, and the bonus track "Red Sector A."

There's no suggested list price as of yet, but we'll keep you posted.
