SOLD OUT show that was incredible.
I attended R40 at MSG, and seeing the film in such a full in-your-face environment was tremendous and brought back some great memories.
EVERY song got an applause afterwards, hah. Who else but Rush could command applause from a 4 yr old concert video?
I'd have to say that Xanadu was hands-down the most intense of all the songs, followed by Headlong Flight.
Alex's blistering solos in Headlong Flight and Working Man especially were jawdropping (not to mention Jonathan Dinklage's violin solo).
The mix was awesome! Geddy's bass was the star, no doubt.
And as I said in another thread, Geddy's voice sounded amazing, especially on a lot of the alternate takes.
Seeing it all in such detail showed just how hard the lads worked up on stage.
Dude next to me was air drumming!
My *only* complaint was that not enough of the theater did the requisite "HEY!" during Overture, but those of us who did, did it with gusto!
Seeing it where I did made it feel like a real concert experience at times. My friend and I even wondered if we should have brought earplugs.
THUMBS WAY WAY UP for Cinema Strangiato. They even added another showing for next week!
