Did You Know?
When the band starts playing "La Villa Strangiato", Alex says things into the microphone that are mockingly censored on the video. The band's explanation for this "joke" is that Alex simply jabbered into the microphone (as he does, uncensored, on later concert videos), and his voice was not recorded. The "censored" warnings on-screen were a manufactured aspect of the joke. The band laments that viewers often don't get the joke. See more
Though presented as a single concert, evidence of multiple shows spliced together can be seen at the beginning of the encore: During the opening to "2112", Alex Lifeson's guitar can be seen to change back and forth from a black one to a white one, between wide shots and close-ups. See more
The DVD version, part of a boxed set called "Rush Replay x3" contains new soundtracks remixed in PCM Stereo, Dolby 5.1 and DTS. The original PCM audio mix from the Laserdisc and VHS versions is not on the DVD. See more
