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

Rain threatened this show, as did the other two shows in Brazil (Porto Alegre and São Paulo), but it only hit during São Paulo. 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 »

The best live concert DVD in existence
24 September 2006 | by (Nova Scotia) – See all my reviews

After searching for 6 months, I finally found this DVD. All I can say is it was damn well worth the wait! "Rush in Rio" may very well be the greatest rock DVD in existence. I'm not joking. It's incredible! All the fuss about the sound being crappy is true, however it doesn't make the concert unwatchable. I find it makes you feel like you're actually in Rio watching the concert from the audience. That's one of the reasons I love this DVD. It makes you feel like you're actually there. Also, Geddy, Alex and Neil have never been in better form! Geddy's vocals are flawless, Alex's guitar playing is still incredible, and Neil - absolutely no words to say. The camera work on this concert was very good I must say. They gave us a good look at everything that was going on on-stage, and in the audience. Kudos to the cameramen! Anyways, enough of my raving! Go watch "Rush in Rio" for yourself. You will be amazed. I guarantee it.

10/10
