RUSH is not messing around! Trafalgar Releasing and Anthem Entertainment recently announced that “RUSH: Cinema Strangiato – Director’s Cut” is coming to select theatres in North America for one night only, September 9, 2021.
So, I guess it’s good luck getting tickets?
“Rush: Cinema Strangiato – Director’s Cut” puts you right in the middle of things – celebrating 40 years of “Moving Pictures”.
Apparently there’s a revamped setlist that includes bonus tracks “One Little Victory”, “Red Barchetta” & “Cygnus X-1” / “The Story So Far” featuring Neil Peart’s final recorded drum solo! There’s also lots of interviews including Tom Morello, Billy Corgan, Taylor Hawkins, producer Nick Raskulinecz, The Trailer Park Boys, violinist Jonathan Dinklage and more!
Things just got real.
Tickets go on sale as of August 3rd. Keep up with up-to-date info on participating theatres.
RUSH singer/bassist Geddy Lee was interviewed on 93.3 WMMR and said, “What it is is basically a way of celebrating the ‘R40’ tour in the sense on a big screen. It’s taking a lot of stuff that fans might have seen on that video, the concert footage, but it’s added a few twists to it — there’s some soundcheck footage, there’s some pieces that people haven’t seen and haven’t been released, and there are interviews with various musicians blah-blah-blah-ing about us. [Laughs] So I think the intent of the record company, in that regard, was just to create something that you can’t have at home. Going into a venue with a ton of other like-minded RUSH fans and celebrating the final tour, as it were.”
RUSH drummer Neil Peart died in January 2020 in Santa Monica, California after a three-year battle with brain cancer. He was 67 years old.
Can’t wait to see the Director’s cut! Long live RUSH!
