'RUSH: BEYOND THE LIGHTED STAGE'

PREMIERING SATURDAY, JUNE 26th AT 9PM* ON VH1, VH1 CLASSIC, AND PALLADIA

NEW YORK, June 14 -- VH1 Rock Docs presents the world television premiere of the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival Audience Choice Award documentary, "RUSH: Beyond the Lighted Stage" premiering on VH1, VH1 Classic, and Palladia on Saturday, June 26th at 9PM*.

With a career spanning four decades, RUSH (Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart) is one of the most successful bands in the history of popular music. This new documentary gives a comprehensive exploration of the history of legendary Canadian power trio, Rush � from their early days growing up in the suburbs of Toronto, through their landmark albums and tours, and finishing with them in the present day. This documentary offers an in-depth look at the band's evolution: starting with their progressive hard rock sound of the 70's, through their popular rock sound of the early 80's, continuing through the keyboard influenced mid/late 80's, and deciding in the 90's to return to a sound more resembling that which made them famous.

"RUSH: Beyond the Lighted Stage" explores the phenomenon behind what could be the world's biggest cult band, Rush. Directors Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn ("Metal: A Headbanger's Journey" & "Iron Maiden: Flight 666") tell us the story of the band by combining extremely rare and never-before-seen interviews with current interviews from some of the band's admirers and contemporaries. These interviews include Gene Simmons (KISS), Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), Trent Reznor (NIN), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Sebastian Bach (Skid Row), and many more.

Zoe Vision, in association with Banger Films is set to release "RUSH: Beyond The Lighted Stage" on Blu-Ray and DVD on June 29. Rush has sold more than 40 million records worldwide and has garnered legions of devoted and passionate fans. Rush is one of rock's most influential bands, ranking third for most consecutive gold and platinum albums behind The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
