I remember reading that Geddy Lee said they were worried the setlist was too similar to the Rush in Rio DVD, so they decided to edit out some songs.  He also said they regretted it and someday they may release the entire concert on DVD.

Has nothing to do with a time issue at all. The rest of the show is being saved for Blu-Ray discs when it is released on that format in about 2 years...ditto the GUP concert that will be released for the first time in its entirety.

Space and time aren't a problem because Rush in Rio was the entire show.

I'd love for you to be right but I'm pretty sure there's virtually no chance we'll ever see any of the three 1980s concerts in their entirety.

As for the R30 show, time/space considerations have nothing to do with it. I think it's fairly likely that some or all of those songs will be put back for the eventual high definition version. Here's Geddy's comments about it:

"Some of the songs were dropped from R30 due to technical reasons but also we didn't want to have too many similarities with Rush In Rio. Why not? Well, I think now that it was a dumb decision of ours. In fact I regret not having put the whole show on those disks. But I promise you, all those songs that were cut will eventually see the light of day, in some shape or form." - Geddy Lee, Aardschok Magazine, March 2006

Yeah, it seems Blu Ray will be the consumer standard.  The prices should come down.

That's why I waited for the end of the format war.  Beta taught me a thing or 2 about competing formats.  Some retailers are offering money to trade in your HD-DVD for (very limited) money back.  You might want to investigate what (if anything) you can get in unloading it - because in all honesty, outside of being a future collectible, it's going to do nothing but lose value.  I'm waiting for the price of BluRay to come down.  And now Microsoft is saying that the future isn't in discs, but in downloading.  Guess there heart really wasn't in HD-DVD, then.   tongue.gif

Shall we wager this little comment of yours? Cash? Tickets? Swag?

You choose...because the full GUP WILL come out in its entirety.
