For over 40 years Rush was one of the premier musical acts in the world, selling over 40 million records. The band has a vast global fan base which continues to adore the Canadian trio’s innovative mix of classic rock, progressive rock and blues-influenced material.
Now, to the delight of Rush and pin fans everywhere, Stern Pinball has added Rush to its ever-growing rock and roll hall of fame with the introduction of this jaw-dropping and mindblowing new table. It pays homage to these three incredible musicians and songwriters, whose music will surely be eternal.
The new Rush pin is, quite simply, a concert under glass, with more songs than ever before on a Stern table. Each track is carefully chosen to represent the very best of Rush’s output, a career which saw the band nominated for seven Grammys, not to mention countless awards and a place in both the US and Canadian Rock and Roll Halls of Fame.
Virtually every Rush fan will find their favourite track here, accentuated and enhanced with sound and lighting effects, making every game a Rush concert in your own home. Songs include Headlong Flight; One Little Victory; Tom Sawyer; The Spirit of Radio; Far Cry; Freewill; Cygnus X-1 (Book One; The Voyage) and Cygnus X-1 (Hemispheres); Bastille Day, Fly By Night; Subdivisions; The Big Money; Limelight; La Villa Strangiato and Red Barchetta.
But this Pro pin table also ushers in the next level of the pinball experience with its Stern Insider state-of-the-art hardware. This allows it to recognise players, connect to the internet and track player scores and activities.
The Insider Connected™ app adds an incredible layer to your game as you connect with other players via the QR code built into the table’s bottom arch. It means that you can interact with the game and a global network of players, with dynamic entertainment and player engagement features.
But what you will really want to know is, how good is the game? It goes beyond the dreams of pin fans, as you travel back in time with Rush by shooting balls through a custom sculpted electromagnetic Time Machine, aim for the Freewill Multiball target that’s hidden behind a bank of musical instruments, and set your sights on the Spirit of Radio optical spinning target.
The game boasts three Challenge Modes and Mini-Wizard Multiball Modes, as well as four R-U-S-H stand up targets, while the stainless steel Hemispheres right ramp is graced with a custom-engraved and illuminated Rush logo.
This pin saw the two surviving members of Rush, Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee reunited in the studio, along with fellow Canadian Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies. They've recorded unique custom speech solely for this game. Designed to add passion and humour to the game, those asides are accompanied by exclusive live Rush footage and custom animations.
The Rush Pro table is also fitted with 96 intelligent LEDs that enable full colour spectrum control and are synchronised and adjustable, making them responsible to action on the playfield. A stereo sound system with a 3-channel amplifier ensures you hear every note of every song - just as the band intended.
The Rush pinball table is finished in powder-coated wrinkle finish on the side armour, hinges, front lockdown moulding and legs. Michael Barnard at Sunburn Designs has created hand-drawn artwork of the iconic band for the cabinet.
All fans of the rock trio will instantly recognise the image of the magnificent owl from the Fly By Night album, which spreads its wings across the translite and is echoed at the far end of the cabinet. It’s a fitting image for your game, and will really take flight with this incredible table from Stern.
Like all Stern pinball collections, The Rush is available in three different editions. This is the Pro edition, the most affordable and accessible. If you need something more, the Premium edition includes extra features and more interactive playfield elements. And if only the best will do, the Limited Edition is the ultimate, highly exclusive and collectible version of this iconic machine.
