Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage certified Double Platinum

Thu, Sep 9, 2010@5:54PM | comments

UPDATE - 9/9@9:27PM: Eric at Power Windows reminded me that as a 2 DVD set, only 100,000 copies of the documentary needed to be sold to achieve Double Platinum status. Still pretty impressive considering the DVD was only released a little over 2 months ago.

The RIAA just recently certified the Rush documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage Double Platinum this past September 1st, which means it has sold at least 200,000 copies to date (see here for video certification requirements). Two other Rush releases received updates to their certification status as well. Rush in Rio was certified 7X Multi Platinum (700,000+ copies sold) and R30 was certified 5X Multi Platinum (500,000+ copies sold). Congratulations Rush! They now have some more swag to decorate the offices at Anthem. You can search the RIAA database and check out all the Rush certifications yourself at this link. Thanks to Sean for the heads up.
