Japan: 1985

“Pressure Release” is the title of a Neil Peart article that was included in the tour book for Rush’s only Japan tour that year.

Source: Cover claims this was recorded at Meadowlands Arena in New Jersey on 29 September 1984.

Rush did play a concert at this venue on that date, however, the fact that there is an additional song on the album after Vital Signs (it reads like “Find My Way”(sic) but is really hard to see) makes a good case that this comes from a performance on the Japan tour – if someone has both the album and the 29 September recording to compare, that would be great.

Date: September 29, 1984
Location: Meadowlands Arena, East Rutherford, NJ, USA

HOTWACKS rating: “Exs”

The first ever Rush bootleg was AROUND THE WORLD RECORDED LIVE IN MONTREAL (TAKRL 930), most likely followed by either this UD title or the triple box RUSH ‘N’ ROULETTE [(fake) TAKRL 2017]. If you know any further details, please leave a message.
