In 2015, Rush went out for a 40th anniversary tour. At the time the R40 tour was rumored to be their last tour – an end to Rush’s life on the road together. “Rush | Time Stand Still” follows this farewell journey. Exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the band and crew throughout the tour provide the raw and vivid emotional undertones of this feature-length film. At its core are Rush’s devoted fans, and their undying devotion and quirky sense of ownership are on full display as the R40 tour comes to a crescendo at the “Fabulous” Forum in Los Angeles. Personal stories highlight the importance Rush holds in their lives and the lasting impressions of their extensive catalog. For Rush, they are quick to acknowledge the role their fans have played in their success, which makes the reality that this might be the last so difficult. Candid interviews with Lee, Lifeson and Peart bring “Rush | Time Stand Still” to an emotional conclusion for a band who built their career the old-fashioned way; one show at a time.
“Rush are in the pantheon of the all-time greatest rock and roll groups,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said. “‘Rush | Time Stand Still’ brings the behind-the-scenes story of their R40 tour to the big screen. The cinema’s big sound/screen experience is the best environment to bring Rush’s legions of fans together for this personal celebration of one of the biggest classic rock bands of all time.”
