Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson join Primus onstage for a RUSH classic

The South Park 25th Anniversary Concerts took place back on August 9 and 10 at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado and saw a semi-RUSH reunion alongside the power-trio PRIMUS.

The shows featured South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone along with artists such as PRIMUS, WEEN and extra special guests Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson from RUSH.

The pair joined PRIMUS on stage for a performance of the RUSH classic “Closer To The Heart” off the band’s 1977 album “A Farewell To Kings” which PRIMUS has been performing in it’s entirety on their recent tour. The performance marks the first time Lee and Lifeson have performed RUSH music live together since the band’s final tour and the passing of drummer Neil Peart.

There is also some history between RUSH and South Park as the show’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, created a video called “Lil’ Rush for Rush” which the band would play prior to performing the song “Tom Sawyer” on their 2007 Snakes & Arrows tour.
