    RUSH - Cinema Strangiato 2019

    https://www.billboard.com/articles/c...-2019-theaters


    The devoted legion of Rush fans may be missing their band, which has been in dry-dock since 2015. But they'll get a fix with the Aug. 21 cinematic screening of Rush: Cinema Strangiato 2019.

    The Trafalgar Releasing and Anthem Entertainment event is being billed as the first "Annual Exercise in Fan Indulgence" and will feature a hodge-podge of song performances, including "Tom Sawyer," "Closer to the Heart" and "Subdivisions," unreleased soundcheck and backstage footage from the 2015 R40 40th anniversary tour, and new interviews with producer Nick Raskulinecz and Rush peer fans Billy Corgan, Tom Morello and Taylor Hawkins, who inducted the Canadian trio into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with fellow Foo Fighter Dave Grohl in 2013. Singer-bassist Geddy Lee, meanwhile, sat for a new interview about Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass, which was published in December. "I'm excited for fans to see some new clips from our R40 tour but also a peek behind the scenes of making the Big Beautiful Book of Bass," Lee said.

    The film event is as close as we're likely to come to a Rush reunion. Lee told Billboard in December that prospects of he, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart regrouping in any form is "highly unlikely. Neil has retired and has no interest to play anymore. Alex and I...it's possible. We'll see. I'm sure something else will come along for me to do." Lee nevertheless voiced support for archival projects, such as album box sets the group has been putting out.

    "As long as they do it with a high level of quality and the fans appreciate them and having these obscure tracks here and there, that's fine," Lee said. "They pass everything by us to make sure we sign off on it, and there are discussions that go on from time to time. As long as it's a quality thing they're releasing, I'm good with that."

    DVD for me, no theater around here will run it. I don't care for Geddy's voice on this tour but that never stopped me from buying a Rush DVD before.

    Thanks for sharing Progatron! This is wonderful news indeed and I surely hope they release Cinema Strangiato 2019 on Blu-ray later on in the year.

    Re Geddy's voice, I have to say that his live vocals over the years have often been bad but it seems that people often turn a blind eye or rather blind ear to it or just don't care. They were particularly bad on the farewell tour and yet they're happy to release a live cd/dvd of it as if his voice was fine. Strange isn't it? Or maybe its just me..

    No, it's not you. I can't listen to him at all.

    Love the guy, though.

    Sigh, Yeah Ged's vox was pretty much toast the last 4-5 tours. I have always suspected that some of Neils resentment towards touring was at least partially related to how Geddy sang those wonderful lyrics. They seemed to always be the bridesmaid and never the bride - even when he could sing the parts. His playing was always amazing, but the lyrics seemed to be delivered, well, badly. I know Neil would never, ever say anything about that, but how could it not trouble him at least a bit? Sometimes, only about half the lyrics of a song could be considered "well delivered". Not well timed, not particularly expressive - always, just kind of "there". Almost like an afterthought, like "you don't actually expect me to sing this do you? - I may be way off, but as critical as they are about one anothers performances, there has to be at least some thought there like... "you're the singer, Sing it like its a part of the song!" Working to be so perfect at everything else, and leaving the voice so - compromised. - I may be way off, but its always in my thoughts when I watch the DVD's of their past maybe 15 years?

    On the flip side, I wonder if inside they miss it, all three of them. What an experience to walk away from. The so-called "phony" Limelight aside. I have started playing again live, and despite my age, I find I still enjoy performing. I quit for 20 years because I was sick of playing crap for uncaring people (don't do that!). There are people who do care - maybe not many, but Rush has tens of thousands', if not hundreds of thousands' people who dearly LOVE their shows. Its just a big wow to think they have been able to shut it off like a spicket.

    Well, I'll have to reread the typewriter-on-blue-paper document "A Condensed Rush Primer" signed by Neil that I got from the fan club in 77 or so to get the history right (if I can find it)
