Did You Know?

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Alternate Versions

The Laserdisc version also contains "Lock and Key", an additional song not included on the VHS or DVD versions. See more »

Amazing Musicians and incredible DVD
18 December 2007 | by ButNoMoreSee all my reviews

These guys are excellent and anything they put out to the public is first class. The musicianship of this band is amazing and we should all be very thankful we live in a world where Rush exists. Future generations will never be able to see such mastery live and in person. Get this DVD and you will enjoy it throughly!! I was recently able to see these incredible musicians play in Houston, TX and was blown away. I have not missed a show since power windows and I have to say that they are better than ever. Everyone should embrace these guys and teach others what real musicianship is! There will never be such a tight and well put together trio again in our lifetime. Lets just hope and pray that they do not retire anytime soon!
