The title says it all really because those of you that have R30 or Rush in Rio might be thinking 'why do I need this?'. Well, firstly it has a load of songs which are not on those DVDs, secondly Geddy's voice sounds better than ever (and is for once well up in the mix), thirdly the band play a blinder (this is even better than R30) and finally the sound and picture quality is the best yet (some dates on the British tour weren't so hot sound quality wise - don't judge this by them). The Snakes and Arrows cd of course is heavily featured and some Rush fans have been a little lukewarm about this latest cd. But most who stick with the songs end up loving them (which just makes it a typically Rush album!!).

We've had quite a few live dvd sets from Rush recently but this is my far and away the best release of their career for me.
This is class from start to finish. The band are on top form, the timing is impecable, and they really do look like they are having a great time.
The camerawork and picture quality is superb throughout. The set starts with Limelight, the band bathed in white light, and that has to be the best picture I have ever seen on a live dvd. Probably any dvd.
There is a lot of older material here Circumstances, Digital Man, Entre Nous and A Passage To Bangkok that the band haven't played live in a while. A sprinkling of tracks from the new cd along with concert favourites like Tom Sawyer, The Sprit of Radio and Subdivisions.
That a lot of this music is 25 or more years old and still sounds great is testament to how good this band's back catalogue is.
Some of the band's quirky humour doesn't always work on me, but it does show the band have a sense of humour and can laugh at themselves a little.
Though when the concert is finished proper and the band has left the stage for good the sight of Geddy in his best Scottish attire announcing on the big screen "Thank God, that ****'s over" is priceless

Just thought I'd write this to let potential buyers know that there are NO audio sync issues with this excellent Blu-Ray.

Audio sync is a new problem with LCD/Plasma TVs. This happens because of additional video processing that the TVs go through. So, if you are watching normal TV using the speakers on the television this isn't a problem as the internal audio is delayed to "catch up" with the picture.

Problems arise when you take the audio from the Blu-Ray player and hook it up to an A/V amplifier as the audio is then not delayed and is out-of-sync with the picture. I suspect this set-up is familiar to the people that have noticed the sync problems as it's noticed more with music than movies.

There are two solutions:
1. Take the audio feed from the TV to the A/V amp using phono connections, but you will only get a stereo or at best a pro logic signal (no DD or DTS)
or, 2. Check to see if your player has an "Audio Sync adjust" setting in the player's menu (I know most Sony players have this so I'm sure other manufacturers will too).

Hope this is of some help. The Rush disc is excellent and I wouldn't want people to be put off buying it if they thought there were going to be problems.

I bought this because mainly I have been rather disapointed by the DVD's that Rush have made in the past. Ok, Rio was very good indeed but there was something missing and I could not put my finger on what it was.

So after writing to their management asking for a DVD of the latest tour I jumped at the chance to get one when it came out.

What a suprise it was. Fabulous sound, very clear picture and what is more 3 disks in the wallet!! For me the recording does not take off until entre nous where everything seems to come together. Its a fab ride throughout well worth the money, possibly even getting blue ray for. As a Rush fan for years this is a recording to cherish and play all of the time. My favourite has to be the way the wind blows, and the drumming swing suprise which I was left wanting more.

Hey, they have got old with me! But this is a recording of spring chickens. Totally infectious. Buy it.

Format: Blu-ray
Seeing as Amazon don't have any details, here is the tracklisting and content for this latest Rush live set, the main show being filmed in Rotterdam (in one of the venues also showcased in Dream Theater's recent Chaos In Motion DVDisaster) and the "authorised bootlegs" in Atlanta.

First off, the Blu-Ray release mercifully features everything the 3-disc DVD has on ONE disc, so no annoying swapping over mid-set. Secondly, the packaging is much better than the standard DVD, which comes in an awfully flimsy card case which widens at the folds. As the BD only has one disc, it's presented in simple two-panel digipak the same height as the average BD case, a vast improvement on the frankly cheap looking DVD alternative. As always, the picture quality is beyond reproach, and the audio is perfect. The choice of songs here is arguably the best of the six Rush concerts available on video, as it wisely focuses on the album the tour is in support of, while including a healthy balance of the obligatory ("Tom Sawyer", "Spirit of Radio") with some lesser known, arguably better tracks, including one of my personal favourites, "Digital Man", as well as cracking renditions of "Witch Hunt" and "Secret Touch". The extras on offer are a tad less impressive than previous outings, but for Christ's sake, its RUSH on blu-ray!! I'm sorry I can't offer a precise, technical description of the merits of the varied soundtracks, but you know it's excellent. Tracklist is as follows:

1. Limelight
2. Digital Man
3. Entre Nous
4. Mission
5. Freewill
6. The Main Monkey Business
7. The Larger Bowl
8. Secret Touch
9. Circumstances
10. Between The Wheels
11. Dreamline
12. Far Cry
13. Workin' Them Angels
14. Armor & Sword
15. Spindrift
16.
