    Anybody have any intrest in upcoming release of the 'Rush in Rio" DVD.
    It is the last show of the Vapor Trails tour, in Rio with 60,000 fans.
    I personally can't wait.

    speaking of rush, has everyone heard that they'll be doing a one-off show with the stones in toronto at the end of the month? might be worth a road trip -tickets are super-cheap.

    Not worth the trip.

    It's $28 CDN or so, and I'm only an hour away, but we decided to skip this one.

    Sure, there's Rush, AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, The Tragically Hip, possibly U2, and more...
    ...but there's also going to be hundreds of thousands of people, and there's essentially no chance of ever seeing the stage. I don't think it's worth it.

    Here is what the official Rush website says:FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Rush’s 17 albums are well represented through a 28-song performance.

    The DVD will be a 2-disc set that will include a documentary of the band’s tour of Brazil that includes footage from shows in Porte Allegre, Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro. There will also be extensive bonus features such as: multi-camera options and hidden clips. This is a truly amazing DVD set that captures the energy, power and virtuosity of this legendary ensemble. The audio will be offered in Dolby Digital Stereo, Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound and DTS Digital Surround Sound. The DVD will be distributed by Rounder Recorders in the U.S., Anthem in Canada, Sanctuary in Europe, JVC in Japan and Sum Records in South America.

    nice to see another marillion fan round here, don't see too many of them!

    I like both H and Fish-era stuff, but Clutching At Straws is probably my favourite M album of all.

    I must say Clutching at Straws is an awesome album.
    I'm more into the Fish era, but I also like the stuff with Hogarth.

    Yeah, Brave and Afraid Of Sunlight are both great. Holidays In Eden and Seasons End both have great moments, but aren't great albums IMO.

    H is the better singer technically, no doubt. But Fish was the more charismatic presence.

    Trewavas playing came more to the forefront on the H era stuff. The playing on Brave and Afraid Of Sunlight is really nice. Some really driving lines.

    I think the reason I always preferred Rush and Marillion over bands like Dream Theater is that Rush and Marillion seem (to me at least) more song based. They have the musicianship, but still want to make it a memorable tune. Dream Theater are incredible musicians, but the songs just don't do it for me. Cue 10,000 Dream Theater fans calling for my head.

    Anyway, to prove this isn't totally off topic. Didn't Marillion open for Rush in their North American tour of '89 or so?

    Practicing or lapsed?

    Cool! I used to get such stick at high school, people couldn't reconcile how I was into Duran Duran AND Marillion AND New Order AND Rush. Like the two worlds couldn't mix. It was all just good songs to me.

    ..all the best freaks are here...

    Sulphur La,
    David, I went through the SAME thing! I always caught it from Jazz guys and the Metalheads. According to them there was no way you could like Weather Report or Stanley Turrentine and dig Duran or Waitresses. The metalheads though it was wimpy and the Jazz guys said it was harmonically barren. Duran got the chicks though! I got more dates digging Duran than metal or Jazz. Plus, in pop music then everyone sounded different. There was no way you could ever confuse XTC with Duran with Simple Minds with Marillion with Rush and...you get the idea. Those players all have a "voice." Don't worry Jazz guys I still listen to that stuff too!

    Count me in as another huge Marillion fan! I saw Marillion open for Rush at Radio City Music Hall in 1983. I've been lucky to catch them a couple times in the Fish days as well as a bunch of Hogarth shows. Awesome band, and Trewavas is just a great player.

    Looking forward to the Rush DVD - I missed them on the Vapor Trails Tour.
