Rush is one of rock’s most influential bands, ranking third for most consecutive gold or platinum studio albums after The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. But despite having legions of devoted fans and being revered by generations of musicians, they have been ignored by critics and continually overlooked by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Featuring never-before-seen archival footage and interviews with some of today’s most respected rock artists, Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage explores the forty-year career and phenomenon behind what could be the world’s biggest cult band.
