Rush's second collection of videos reminds us of why, perhaps, they are first and foremost an 'audible' experience. Studio footage is of course always welcomed, but their entry into the world of Music Video leaves much to be desired.

Trivia

After this show, two props were lost; drummer Neil Peart's rotating platform, and the carpet that was laid out on the stage. The driver driving the drum platform out of the stadium miscalculated the overhead clearance he had and the platform hit it, rolled off the trailer, and was destroyed on impact. The carpet got so soaked with water from the shows down there that it never dried out fully and weighed way too much to ship home, so it was left behind. See more »

Goofs

During the performance of "The Trees", guitarist Alex Lifeson flubbed the first few notes of the guitar solo. However, this can only be heard on the Dolby Digital Stereo 2-channel audio track (Audio 1). For the Dolby 5.1 Surround track (Audio 2), the mistake is gone and the solo is flawless. See more »

An astonishing performance by cult Canadian rockers.
18 March 2004 | by (Bolton,England) – See all my reviews

This DVD will be treated with indifference by mllions of classic rock music devotees across the world because Rush just aren't cool. It is a shame that Rush have had to overcome sneering disdain from the majority of North American and British music journalists over their thirty odd year history as this has deprived many people the chance to get into a real band.Each of the last four decades are well represented here and what a catalogue of songs it is! We have the seminal "2112", the magical "The Trees" and the lyrical "Tom Sawyer" interspersed with the high-energy, genre-challenging pieces from their latest album "Vapor Trails." The musicianship is almost flawless, the stage show is spectacular and the Brazilian fans are just plain crazy (at one point they sing along to an instrumental!)Each band member plays at a level that defies belief-real craftsmen performing art.If you doubt this try out the instrumentals "La Villa Strangiato" or "The Rhythm Method" for size-and yes the latter is a drum solo (which has to be seen to be believed.)

Sound and vision production values are very high as befits the Rush experience and you also get a documentary and multi-angled set pieces to boot.

This is an astonishing performance and tribute to the Canadian rockers and all serious classic rock fans should own a copy.
