Exit...Stage Left is a concert film released on videocassette, laserdisc, and DVD by the Canadian band Rush. It documents a live concert performance by the band on their 1981 Moving Pictures tour. In October 1981, the band released an audio album of the same name on vinyl LP, audiocassette, 8-track cartridge and (later) compact disc. The video comprises an entirely different recording from the album, with a different track list as well as voice-over comments from the band members about songwriting and performing.

Dates of release & formats

The videocassette and laserdisc versions were the original formats of release, both in 1982.[1] The videocassette and laserdisc versions are currently out-of-print.

In 2006, a DVD version of the original production was released as part of the DVD box set, titled Rush Replay X 3 with its audio re-mastered in 5.1-channel Dolby Surround by Rush guitarist and co-producer Alex Lifeson. In 2007, the DVD version of Exit...Stage Left, as it was included in Replay X 3, was released as a single, stand-alone DVD.[1]

The concert footage documented in Exit... Stage Left was filmed March 27, 1981, at the Montreal Forum, in Montreal, Quebec.[2]
