Did You Know?


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 »


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 »

Possibly the finest rock video ever recorded
18 January 2004 | by (Bolton,England) – See all my reviews

This much anticipated DVD memento of Rush's visit to South America in 2002 is possibly the finest rock video ever set down on disc.The picture and sound production values are amazing,even more so as they constantly battled the elements to bring this production off. All the tracks you would expect from the RUSH catalogue are here from Tom Sawyer to The Pass gloriously reproduced for the frankly,orgiastic Brazilian crowd.They actually singalong to YYZ-which is an instrumental, and gives you an indication of their fervour!The first disc is the concert and the second disc contains 3 multi angle set-pieces -la Villa Strangiato,YYZ and the awesome drum solo, plus a 30 minute documentary about the bands visit to Brazil. All in all this is a triumph and all serious classic rock fans should own a copy.
