Trivia

This concert was recorded on the fly with no sound or video checks of any kind. Reportedly, the crew had a hard time driving from São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro, and by the time they arrived it was after noon, when they would've otherwise been close to done setting up. By the time they did get finished setting up, the crowd was gathering at the door, and there was no holding them back, so they were literally forced to go without a sound or video check. 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 »

BEAUTIFUL!!!
2 April 2004 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

I loved every aspect of this DVD set. Yes, the production was sup-par; but if you read Neil Peart's liner noted you'll see that this was a hurry up project. It was all recorded from the back of a van on a last minute basis under the threat of the sky opening mid show!

FABULOUS!!! Rush at their best in years. The music is phenominal, the crowds are more alive than anywhere in the States or Canada, and the guys are ON FIRE! Some old favorites such as "The Pass" are mixed in with the usuals. They even added "Closer to the Heart" back into the playlist specifically for the South American leg after hearing that it was the crowd favorite.

All in all, a superb live DVD... And you gotta love the Vapor Trails dragon!
