[VH1 Classic Brings the Heat This September]

UPDATE - 8/19@7:33AM: Reader Presto_a RUSH fan_06-08-90 noticed that there also seems to be a DVD/Blu-ray combo version of 2112/Moving Pictures documentary available which also includes 2 CDs (4 discs total) that I assume are copies of the 2 albums. You can pre-order it at Amazon for $27.99.

Just like they did 2 years ago, VH1 Classic will be airing a special in celebration of the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah on Wednesday, September 8th called Rush Hashanah where nothing but Rush programming (including the 2112/Moving Pictures Classic Albums special) will air for 24 hours. From the press release:

"RUSH Hashanah" begins Wednesday, September 8 @ 7 PM*

When sundown hits, RUSH comes out to play this Rosh Hashanah. VH1 Classic celebrates the Jewish New Year with "RUSH Hashanah" starting at sundown on Wednesday, September 8 at 7 PM* for 24-hours straight. Tune in to the award-winning VH1 Rock Doc "RUSH: Beyond the Lighted Stage," for an up close and personal look at the Canadian musicians and jam to their "RUSH In Rio" concert. Take an in-depth look at Classic Albums "2112" and "Moving Pictures" premiering at 9:30 PM ET/PT and get even more RUSH when "That Metal Show" hosts Eddie, Don and Jim sit down with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson.

We've been wondering when we'd get to finally see the 2112/Moving Pictures Classic Albums special and now we have our answer. It had been slated to run before the television premiere of the Rush documentary on VH1 Classic back in June but was pulled at the last minute. The Rush 2112/Moving Pictures Classic Albums documentary will be released on September 28th and is now available for pre-order on both DVD and Blu-ray. You can check out a short minute-and-a-half preview video at this link. The video shows Neil Peart, David Fricke, Alex Lifeson and Terry Brown talking about Limelight.
