Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson performed a Rush classic during a famous animated show’s celebration. Lee and Lifeson’s reunion made their longtime dedicated fans very happy since they had been looking forward to such a performance.

One of the most popular American animated sitcoms, ‘South Park’ has preserved its success and popularity for twenty-five years with its unique characters; Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick. The show has been praised for its well-written plot full of dark humor, irony, satire, and criticism of ongoing social and political issues, especially in the USA.

To celebrate its 25th year, the show’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, collaborated with Primus and Ween for two concerts at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre on August 9 and 10, 2022. They had two guests, Lifeson and Lee, who first appeared on the screen as ‘South Park’ characters. A short time later, the two musicians appeared on the stage and joined Primus and Stone to perform their famous song ‘Closer to the Heart’ from their ‘A Farewell to Kings’ album.

Watching them on stage together after years made some of their fas emotional. Rush had appeared in the 15th season of the series on the episode ‘Royal Pudding,’ in which they had sung a version of an Elton John song. Thus, even though Lifeson and Lee’s reunion and appearance at the celebration was a surprise, it’s known that the show’s creators had previously paid tribute and mentioned the band members many times.
