RUSH: Beyond the Lighted Stage Premieres on VH1/VH1 Classic, June 26

This world premiere gives a comprehensive exploration of the history of legendary Canadian power trio Rush from their early days growing up in Toronto, through each of their landmark albums, to the present day. With a career spanning four decades, RUSH (Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neal Peart) is one of the most successful bands in the history of popular music, but despite their remarkable career achievements, they have never been critics' darlings. Directors Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn interview the band's admirers and contemporaries, including Gene Simmons, Billy Corgan, Sebastian Bach, Jack Black, and others and also deliver rare backstage and concert footage.

Thanks to Mike L for the heads up.
