On Friday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m., perennial Fredericton Playhouse favourite Classic Albums Live returns to the stage to perform Rush: 2112.
Classic Albums Live presents skilled musicians who recreate the greatest albums of the ’60s and ’70s live on stage – note for note, cut for cut. Don’t look for costumes and look-alike theatrics at these rock recitals, just pure musicianship and songs that shaped a generation.
Released in 1976, 2112 is the fourth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush. It features a seven-part suite that constitutes a full side of the record, telling a dystopian story set in the year 2112. This album marked Rush’s first real commercial success, eventually reaching platinum status. Today, 2112 is widely considered to be one of the greatest progressive rock albums of all time.
This performance marks the first Classic Albums Live show featuring a Canadian artist to be performed on the Playhouse stage, and it promises to be an unforgettable night for rock fans.
Tickets for Classic Albums Live’s performance of Rush: 2112 are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office by calling 458-8344 or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
