Did You Know?


The crowd in this concert is the second biggest crowd ever to see Rush and only Rush; over 40,000. The biggest was two nights earlier in Sao Paulo; 60,000. Rush has played for as-large or larger crowds in the past, but as part of rock festivals. See more »


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 »

one of best rock bands ever show how excellent they are in Rio
5 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have been a "huge" rush fan ever since "moving pictures" and this concert is simply and example to everyone who is a fan why Rush is so popular. They completely admitted to playing their biggest concert yet, and, despite the rain in a soccer arena, they still manage to give an outstanding performance from start to finish. A real example of this is during "yyz" the entire crowd start to sing along to it in a real classic manner, in perfect sinc. They really play all of everyone's favorite songs with a real powerful "lust" that rarely happens anymore. You get the best seat in the house for one of their best concerts given. The second DVD is a fascinating documentary of the band while they are in brazil and shows you a lot of the backstage things going on and it allows you to see them not just a musicians but as actual people in their everyday life. This DVD gift set is a must for any Rush fan young and old and is definitely a keeper for your DVD collection. Their is even a cd of the concert for those who just want to listen to the music. This DVD is worth it!
