Thu, Oct 13, 2016@9:01AM | comments

UPDATE - 10/14@4:51PM: Note: the Rush Backstage Club has a number of different collector and merchandise bundles of the DVD/Blu-ray available here.

UPDATE - 10/13@10:25AM: Note: judging by the title of the bonus content (Live from the Rabbit Hole) and the setlist, this is likely some pro-shot live footage from the Presto tour - possibly their March 8th, 1990 show at the Palace in Auburn Hills, for which there are several pro-shot/pro-edited bootlegs floating around.

The long-anticipated Rush R40 Live tour documentary is titled Rush: Time Stand Still and will premiere in a special, one-night screening in theaters across North America on November 3rd. The DVD/Blu-ray of the film will release on November 18th and is now available for pre-order (DVD, Blu-ray). Here is the product description along with a tracklisting, including bonus content:

'Rush built their following the right way. No hype, no b@llsh!t, they did it from the ground up. Their legacy is incredible and their influence undeniable.' - Dave Grohl

This feature-length documentary film chronicles the final major tour for legendary rock band Rush. It is an intimate view 'under the hood' of a historic moment from the perspective of the band, their fans, crew, and management. Featuring interviews with the band throughout their sold-out 2015 40th Anniversary tour, the film also shows rarely seen backstage footage capturing the final moments of life on the road. Highlighted as well is the impact on the band's fans and the world that has been built around the beloved Canadian trio. This is the final touring chapter of a band that has meant so much to so many fans around the world. With narration by Paul Rudd. Running time: 1 hour 37 minutes of documentary footage with an additional 67 minutes of never-before-released bonus content.
