    Hey Rush fans, of these two DVD's, which one would you say is the better concert? Which has the best special features, sound quality, overall performance, etc.?

    I can only buy one, sadly, so I need some input. I don't wanna be stuck with the 'bad one', so some opinions would help.

    R30... hands down the better DVD.

    The mix on R30 is much better. Great DVD!

    You really can't go wrong per say. I might say Rush in Rio because the tour was so significant after all of the time off. The bonus documentary is a big plus for sure as it follows Rush through the couple of days and shows in Brazil.

    On both DVDs it says they play 2112. Do they actually play all twenty minutes of it, or just some parts of it? Also, is it hard to hear the bass on 'Rush In Rio'?

    The extras on R30 are worth the price of the whole thing. But, why choose? Get them both!
  10. because he just said he couldnt ge tthem both , but ive seen live in rio and its not hard to hear the bass at all its quite good.
  11. both great...but if i were to pick from the two i would pick "r30"....but then again "a show of hands" and "exit stage left" are both a must own

    R30. I just got it and I was really impressed. Geddy's voice has deepened a little over the years but still, who listens to Rush to hear Geddy Lee sing?
