a sensible choice for the die hard fan and the newcomer
25 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Whether you are looking to add to your collection or just want to see just who are this band that has eluded you for the past 30 years then this is a great place to start.

Filmed in Frankfurt, Germany towards the end of their European Tour (after the Sold-Out UK tour) this DVD works well in addition to the Rush in Rio DVD as the German filming company had the newest of audio and vision equipment, coupled with an indoor venue (as opposed to Rio where it was filmed in a football stadium), allowing them to produce sound of the highest quality and to output the show in High Definition.

As Alex Lifeson said on the Rio box-set, the equipment the Brazillians had was a little dated, however the Rio DVD has something that no other Rush recorded concert has and, in my experience, only one other live show DVD has, which itself was filmed in Rio (this is Iron Maiden: Rock in Rio) and that is energy from the crowd. I do not believe that any other crowd can be any more entertaining to watch in a recorded concert, I most certainly would love to have the chance to join them one day! For this reason people reading reviews on the Rio DVD should ignore comments about the crowd being in the recording too much, there isn't an easy way of dampening the cheers of almost 60,000 excited people!

My only disappointment with the DVD is the lack of the full concert, I attended the Birmingham show and one of the reasons I bought this DVD was that they cram so many songs into the 3 hours they're live you cannot remember what was played altogether so anyone purchasing this will need to get their hands on Rio too for the awesome opening of Nebbit and to hear Ghost Rider.
