Rush Tour Documentary ‘Time Stand Still’ to Screen in Theaters
Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on
A documentary offering a behind-the-scenes look at Rush‘s R40 Tour is headed to theaters for a special one-night screening event later this year.
The R40 dates, billed as the band’s farewell to full-scale touring, have already been commemorated with last year’s R40 Live, but the new film — titled Rush: Time Stand Still — adds a more fan-focused twist. Promising “a raw, intimate and vivid look” at the shows, the synopsis calls Time Stand Still “a documentary event which covers the R40 tour and the unique relationship Rush have with their devoted fans.”
Those fans will get their chance to see it all unfold at select locations on Nov. 3. Scheduled in conjunction with Fathom Events, the one-night-only event brings Time Stand Still to an unspecified number of screens; to see whether it’ll be playing at a theater near you, check your local listings at Fathom’s site.
In addition to a documentary overview of the tour and Rush’s devoted fan base, Time Stand Still offers new interviews with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart, as well as narration from actor and well-known Rush fan Paul Rudd.
Currently enjoying a hiatus after the conclusion of the tour, the members of Rush are still plotting their next move — but even if they’ve put lengthy tours behind them, full-fledged retirement sounds like it remains on the distant horizon. “We’ve been following up on some other interests,” Lifeson was recently quoted as saying, “and we’ve been learning to get used to the idea, and it’s taken a while. But I feel very confident about a lot of things, and music is definitely still one of them. I’m sure we’ll do something in the future. We can’t just stop playing and writing music together.”
