    I plan on getting a copy - maybe Santa will bring it this year. ;)

    I'm looking forward to it, but it seems like a duplication of effort given they last released a similar DVD in Rio. I was hoping more for an album of new material to follow-up Vapor Trails.

    My brother, also a big Rush fan,. thinks this might be their "farewell" CD/DVD release. Hope not.
  4. i got the dvd/cd yesterday...its pretty kick ass..lots of old interviews..damn geddy was even uglier then but he still played a mean bass back then too.. i like the video alot better then rush in rio

    I can't wait to pick it up... I'm kind of strapped for cash considering I'm trying to buy a Geddy Lee sig bass. So I might get it for Christmas.

    I can't wait to see it though.

    Picked this up yesterday. I'm kind of disappointed with the set list (no YYZ, Closer to The Heart, The Trees), but overall I think it is a very good dvd, also since those songs are on the Rush in Rio dvd I'm not too disappointed.

    It's on my xmas list.
    I hope it isn't the "farewell" release, but I would rather see them go out when they are still on top of their game instead of dragging it out.

    If you're worried about this being their farewell check this article out from last month. They mostly talk about the R30 dvd but towards the end it mentions that they are starting work on a new studio album.

  11. I hope it's better than Vapor Trails (although the album was good, I was expecting more sadly.)

    Well, here it is at long last and it lived up to my expectations entirely! The live in Germany disc is brilliantly produced. You can hear virtually EVERY note and nuance of each individual instrument---most notably, Geddy's juicy jazz bass tone. I will ALWAYS have a soft spot in my heart though for the Rickenbacker tone he achieves on the Exit Stage Left video. I swear that thing sounds like a vicious, evil tractor throughout the course of that show! (and yes, when he picks up the doubleneck during Xanadu, it sounds even MORE EVIL). Regarding the second disc, any bassist would be hard pressed NOT finding him/herself reaching for the "rewind" key during the snazzy, jazzy lick in La Villa Strangiato (and THAT DRUM PATTERN underneath it!!!)...did I mention I'm a fan of this band?
