    Ch 801 on DirectTV in Oregon. Might be on a lower channel as well.

    I saw them in Portland for Presto and Roll The Bones. Being a newbie bass player, Geddy's bass playing impresses me more and more.

    Its on 103 and one of the 800 chanels here in the Tampa Bay area. It was running 7 days a week for awhile.


    Its the "Show of Hands" tour from 1989, very good concert. Good musician ship, good mix, and very good camera angles for the most part.

    The only thing I didnt like was durring Temple of Syrinx or whatever that song is, they (D.T.V.) deleted Alex Lifeson's vocals so as to protect and not offend the viewing audience.

    I was never reallly a Rush fan, but after seeing this I became one instantly. LOL some of you bigger fans are going to have to tell me the names of some of the songs they did.

    I saw it too...loved it.

    YYZ (fills baby! fills!), Closer to the Heart, Spirit of the Radio were all awesome.

    There was that other one...y'know...with the thing, and the guy doing that stuff on his insturment...

    YYZ was definatly bad ass, but I thought Spirit of Radio and maybe one or 2 other songs was a bit rushed (no pun intended) but they still came out great.

    i watched it a few nights back. pretty phenomenal. geddy lee lays it down, and sings. that alone got my vote. especially because of what he plays. i like how the guitarist plays the bass with his feet while geddy sings and plays synths and keys.that was impressive. the live version of YYZ flawless and amazing.

    But Sinead's show sucks!

    Unless I read the interview wrong, it sounded like Geddy produced the concert video and added the silly radioactive signs intending it to be a joke. Obviously almost no one saw it at one, and he commented that maybe it wasn't such a good idea afterall :)
