NCM Fathom Events and Rounder Records Present One-Night Concert Event with

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- October 31, 2013
Together with Rounder Records, NCM Fathom Events brings a rare VIP concert
experience to fans with the one-night cinema event “RUSH: Clockwork Angels
Tour” on Monday, Nov. 18 at 7:00 p.m. local time. The “RUSH: Clockwork Angels
Tour” event is a celebration for passionate and loyal Rush fans to experience
a big screen taste of the band’s upcoming, long-anticipated DVD release and
relive the tour. Pre-recorded in Dallas and Phoenix on the band's extensive
“Clockwork Angels Tour,” the 2013 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees perform
such classics such as "Tom Sawyer," "The Spirit of Radio" and "2112" alongside
newly arranged material featuring the Clockwork Angels String Ensemble, which
marks the first time the trio has taken additional musicians on stage. This
epic fan experience also features 25 minutes of exclusive, behind-the-scenes
Rush footage that includes interviews with all three members and offers a rare
glimpse into the band’s touring life.
Tickets for “RUSH: Clockwork Angels Tour” will be available Thursday, Oct. 31
at 21:12 (9:12 p.m. ET) online at www.FathomEvents.com and at participating
theater box offices. The event will be presented in more than 350 select movie
theaters around the country through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network.

With more than 40 million records sold worldwide and countless sold-out tours,
Rush –Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart– are not only one of the most
inventive and compelling groups in rock history, but remains one of the most
popular. “Their influence is undeniable…and their legacy is that of a band
that stayed true to themselves no matter how uncool they may have seemed to
anyone. I think it’s safe to say that Rush are indeed a band that has
balls…and they’ve ALWAYS been cool,” said Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters,
during Rush’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
“Rush rocks, plain and simple, and their fans are truly passionate,” said Dan
Diamond, senior vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “The ‘RUSH: Clockwork
Angels Tour’ up on the big screen, front row center with theater sound, will
be a concert experience their fans will never forget.”
Rush burst out of Canada in the early 1970s with one of the most powerful and
identifiable sounds of the decade. Their 1976 magnum opus “2112” represents
progressive rock at its finest, but their catalogue also features shorter, but
no less dynamic, tunes such as “Tom Sawyer,” “The Spirit Of Radio” and
“Limelight” that remain in constant rotation on radio to this day. Absolutely
uncompromising in every conceivable way, the trio has cultivated the largest
cult fan base in rock while still managing to fill every arena in the country.
They are a band completely removed from the mainstream music scene, and yet
somehow remain one of the most popular rock bands in the world. It is a
dichotomy that has fueled them from the very beginning. Their newest release,
“Clockwork Angels,” is as bold and ambitious as any of their works, and though
the band is entering their 40^th year together, their music is as vital and
relevant as it has ever been.
