Rush's 40th Anniversary Tour Documentary Will Come to Theatres This Fall
Published Oct 03, 2016Back in 2015, Rush celebrated 40 years of music-making with the lengthy R40 tour and accompanying concert film. Now, news has emerged that the power trio will release a tour documentary this fall surrounding their latest run of dates.
A listing from Rotten Tomatoes reveals that the doc, titled Rush: Time Stand Still, will first receive a week-long run in Canadian theatres, and a special one-night release in select American theatres on November 3. The film will be narrated by actor Paul Rudd, who has never been shy about his own Rush fandom on or off set.
A description from the website reads as follows:
In 2015, Rush went out for a 40th anniversary tour; rumored to be the last tour of its kind and the end of their life on the road. Narrated by Paul Rudd, Rush: Time Stand Still is a documentary event which covers the R40 tour and the unique relationship Rush have with their devoted fans. Candid interviews with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart bring Time Stand Still to an emotional conclusion for a band who built their career the old-fashioned way. One show at a time.
Additionally, a press release reveals that fans will also view exclusive extras including Rush | A Salute to Kings – a 20-minute in-depth discussion with Gene Simmons (KISS), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Ann & Nancy Wilson (Heart), Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy) and the band's producer Nick Raskulinecz, as they share their unique stories about Rush at home and away for over 40 years.
The film is being presented in conjunction with Fathom Events, with the film's official website listing all participating theatres here.
Rush's R40 concert film, which saw release late last year, was shot over the course of two shows in their native Toronto.
