A new RUSH film, “Cinema Strangiato: An Annual Exercise In Fan Indulgence”, will get a one-night-only cinematic screening on August 21.
The film, which takes viewers behind the scenes of RUSH‘s 2015 “R40” 40th-anniversary tour, will feature song performances, unreleased soundcheck and backstage footage, and new interviews with producer Nick Raskulinecz and RUSH fans Tom Morello, Billy Corgan, Taylor Hawkins, violinist Jonathan Dinklage and more.
RUSH singer/bassist Geddy Lee, who released “Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Book Of Bass” in December, said: “I’m excited for fans to see some new clips from our ‘R40’ tour but also a peek behind the scenes of making the ‘Big Beautiful Book Of Bass’.”
The Trafalgar Releasing and Anthem Entertainment event has been made possible through a partnership with Concord Music Group.
Trafalgar Releasing senior vice president for acquisitions Kymberli Frueh said: “Trafalgar Releasing is thrilled to bring ‘Rush: Cinema Strangiato 2019’ to theatres around the globe for the first of what we’re hoping will become an annual event — bringing fans together to experience a celebration of one of the world’s most popular rock bands.”
Tickets will go on sale on June 20.
