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