a show of hands.
7 January 2006 | by marvyvonSee all my reviews

i was there... saw it live... then bought the video.... and it reminded me of one of the best ,if not the best concert i have ever been to....awesome does not even come close.... the video sound does not do Rush justice, when you are there the live sound is just as though you are listening to the studio album.. this is a band that pride themselves on reproducing their sound perfectly on stage and they have never failed me yet..a supposed remastering and subsequent release on DVD is greatly anticipated in my house.. BTW(the bit during la villa is just alex singing la la la la and mumbling incoherently about something or other!!!)....
