Rush tracks come to Wii ‘Rock Band 2’ catalog

Gaming Music Nintendo

Harmonix and MTV Games today added seven tracks from progressive rock band Rush to the Rock Band Music Store catalog of downloadable content for Nintendo Wii. The lineup features master recordings from Rush’s most successful album, Moving Pictures (1981), including “Tom Sawyer,” “Red Barchetta,” “YYZ” and “Limelight.” Other tracks include “The Camera Eye,” “Witch Hunt” and “Vital Signs.”
This week’s offering comes from the catalog of downloadable content already released to owners of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Wii fans can expect a rollout of the previously released downloadable content until the entire back catalogue of more than 550 songs is available. In addition, the regularly scheduled future DLC releases for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 system will also be available for Rock Band 2 Wii owners soon.

The Rush tracks cost $2, or 200 Wii Points, each. Tracks are available at the in-game Rock Band 2 Music Store, and Wii Points much be purchased through the Wii Shop Channel.
