MacNaughtan Rush photo prints released

Two previously unreleased shots of Rush by late photographer Andrew MacNaughtan are now available to purchase.

They’ve been issued via MacNaughtan’s website and show the band playing live on their 2002 Vapor Trails tour and a portrait of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart taken in 2004 to support the release of the band’s covers album Feedback.

They’ve been made available by MacNaughtan’s estate with the full support of Rush to mark the band’s 40th anniversary. Both prints are limited to just 40 copies each.

A statement reads: “We are very honoured by your continued support of Andrew’s work and know he would have been as excited as all of you about this tour which is why we wanted to be sure to celebrate this great moment in Rush history.

“Andrew MacNaughtan will forever be intertwined with Rush and we couldn’t be more proud. Please enjoy.”

MacNaughtan was the Canadian trio’s long-time photographer and died while on assignment with Rush in 2012 from a heart attack.

Rush finally made the cover of this month’s edition of Rolling Stone and are currently on what’s been described as their “last major tour of this magnitude” across North America.

The band’s hometown shows in Toronto were last week filmed for a future live release.
