Behold the Rush Pinball Machine in All Its Glory

A Rush pinball machine based on the Canadian prog-rock heroes is on the way from Stern Pinball, as was announced by the game maker last week. But now (as of Jan. 4), a video showing the game has emerged.

Indeed, Rush fans into vintage gaming will soon be able to roll the bones with the caress of a steel ball. Just like an anachronistic, arcade-dwelling Tom Sawyer.

Are you ready to try your hand at Rush pinball?

Watch the video down toward the bottom of this post.

In an earlier teaser video that had yet to reveal the machine, song titles including “Bastille Day,” “Fly by Night,” “Limelight” and “Working Man” appeared onscreen, indicating the Rush tunes that will likely be used in the game celebrating the rock group.

Stern Pinball is related to its 1970s and ’80s pinball predecessor, Stern Electronics, who had early arcade hits with games such as Stampede, Hot Hand, Quicksilver, Flight 2000 and others. Stern Pinball has previously made machines based on bands such as AC/DC, Iron Maiden, KISS, Led Zeppelin and Metallica, as well as for movies, TV and more.

Rush, who formed in 1968 and released 19 studio albums during their time together, stopped performing in 2018. Drummer Neil Peart died from brain cancer two years later. Earlier this year, guitarist Alex Lifeson said he’s probably done with extensive touring. Bassist-vocalist Geddy Lee has started on his memoir.

Last month, a collaborative song emerged featuring Lifeson with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello and Metallica shredder Kirk Hammett. In October, the Ohio State University Marching Band paid tribute to Rush’s music during a football game.
