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.

Perfect!!
4 June 2006 | by (Nova Scotia) – See all my reviews

I bought Rush: R30 with high expectations. I took it home and put it into my DVD player. What I saw was nothing I had expected. All the good reviews seemed to be accurate!! Rush: R30 exceeded my expectations immensely!! The concert was amazing!! Geddy, Alex, and Neil are still going strong!! They looked as healthy as ever, they had lots of energy, and they seemed to be enjoying themselves. Which was great to see!! I must say, Rush: R30 was one of my most smartest purchases I have ever made!! It is definitely worth the dough!! So, fans of Rush, I urge you to go out and buy Rush: R30. You will be very glad you did!!

As I said before, the concert footage was amazing!! I have never had so much fun watching a band in concert in my life!! I also liked Rush's choices for songs to play. I couldn't have chosen better myself!! They played a lot of their biggest hits such as, Working Man, Limelight, The Spirit of Radio, Subdivisions, Earthshine, Red Barchetta, Tom Sawyer, and Dreamline. Those are just a few of the many songs that Rush plays in this DVD.

I purchased the Rush: R30 Deluxe Edition. It comes with 2 DVDs, 2 CDs, a book on the concert and Rush's past, and 2 guitar picks that are signed by Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee. I was very surprised with the Deluxe Edition. It is any Rush fan's dream. The special features in this Deluxe Edition are a great thing to have. There are interviews, music videos, and much much more!!
