Watch RUSH Perform 'Distant Early Warning' From 'Cinema Strangiato' Film

A performance video of the song "Distant Early Warning" from Canadian rock legends RUSH can be seen below. The clip is taken from the new RUSH film, "Cinema Strangiato: An Annual Exercise In Fan Indulgence", which will get a one-night-only cinematic screening on August 21.

The film, which takes viewers behind the scenes of RUSH's 2015 "R40" 40th-anniversary tour, features song performances, unreleased soundcheck and backstage footage, and new interviews with producer Nick Raskulinecz and RUSH fans Tom Morello, Billy Corgan, Taylor Hawkins, violinist Jonathan Dinklage and more.

RUSH singer/bassist Geddy Lee, who released "Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book Of Bass" in December, said: "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'."

The Trafalgar Releasing and Anthem Entertainment event has been made possible through a partnership with Concord Music Group.

Trafalgar Releasing senior vice president for acquisitions Kymberli Frueh said: "Trafalgar Releasing is thrilled to bring 'Rush: Cinema Strangiato 2019' to theatres around the globe for the first of what we're hoping will become an annual event — bringing fans together to experience a celebration of one of the world's most popular rock bands."

RUSH has been completely inactive since completing the "R40 Live" tour four years ago. Drummer Neil Peart was battling enormous physical pain through much of the trek, including a foot infection that made it agonizing for him to even walk.

A few years ago, guitarist Alex Lifeson told Rolling Stone that he receives injections for psoriatic arthritis. He was previously hospitalized for anemia from bleeding ulcers and suffered breathing problems.

Lifeson and Lee have repeatedly said that RUSH will never do a show unless all three musicians agree to take part. They haven't performed as RUSH without Peart since he joined the band in 1974.
