Rush Hashanah and Rush Classic Albums tonight on VH1 Classic

Wed, Sep 8, 2010@9:55AM | comments removed/disabled

Just like they did back in 2008, VH1 Classic is using the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah as an excuse to air nothing but Rush programming for 24 hours straight. Rush Hashanah begins this evening at sundown with the Rush documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage at 7PM EST and the premiere of the 2112/Moving Pictures Classic Albums special immediately following at 9:30PM. You can check out the complete schedule at the VH1 Classic website. The Classic Albums special will also be released to DVD/Blu-ray later this month on September 28th. The DVD version will have a running time of 112 minutes including 50 minutes of bonus footage not included in the VH1 Classic broadcast. You can pre-order your copy on both DVD and Blu-ray, along with a special DVD/Blu-ray combo package that also includes both the 2112 and Moving Pictures CDs (4 discs total). The special includes commentary from all three members of Rush along with producer Terry Brown, Taylor Hawkins of The Foo Fighters, Rolling Stone journalist David Fricke and many others. You can watch 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.
