The back-to-back catharsis of "DEW" and "Subdivisions" left me in tears. Some of the most emotional moments Rush has ever created.

Only amplified by Losing It to Subdivisions.  Shivers!

On the CD The Bonus Tracks are really great. Specially Losing It in LA. Wow what a clear sounding production on that track!

Losing It and the run from Natural Science to the End. My only issue with Losing It, is that it made me cry and I paid no attention to Subdivisions. Losing It should of been the closing song on set one.

I just don't love losing it like everyone seems too. It just makes me sad & I hate the lyrics. "Some are born to....but most of us..."
No. We're ALL born for greatness, not just some. Hate me if you wish.

My favorite part was the opener...blasted with the awesomeness & the knowledge that the whole show is still to come. Kind of like anticipating Christmas. Also closer to the heart was a highpoint.

I will never forget your reaction when we got wind of the fact that they were rehearsing the song during soundcheck.   :)

If I remember correctly, we had to talk him out of actually doing it.

I still have to admit to being a tad underwhelmed by this show.  I don't think they did their career justice, I guess.  Any way hearing Animate played at full speed was a highlight for me, as was hearing RTB for the first time since VT tour ( I missed the R30 tour).  One Little Victory was a bonus.  Highlight of the evening had to be Xanadu in it's entirety with the double necks.  I never expected to be so impressed by that as I was, it was like going back in time.

Best performance???   I say a tie between Losing It and Xanadu... or wait, also add in Jacob's Ladder and Cygnus.  Uh oh, I forgot... and... and also... Pick one.

Cygnus and Lorraine, if you recall further, it wasn't just a couch that was burning.  Rather, there was a stated intend to defecate on the couch, which may in fact have been the reason that said couch was to be dragged onto the front lawn and burned.  I know if that happened on my couch, I'd be burning it on the front lawn pronto.

Yes, it took me awhile to find the thread it was on.  I had forgotten about the defecation. :ph34r:  

The important thing is that we talked him out of it.  :yes:   At least I hope we did.  :unsure:

What are yours?

For me, the surprise triple-threat of Hemispheres Prelude, Xanadu, and Cygnus X-1 was amazing.

I also loved the Trailer Park Boys appearance in the Roll The Bones video.

Also, the encore video and subsequent homage to themselves for the last few songs was great. Putting amps on chairs, just awesome.


Can't forget the barrage of ever-increasing washing machines and amps during the songs either :lol:

That's weird.  Those are exactly what I liked best! :)

So many great moments on this DVD to pick from... When the RTB rap video starts, that's awesome. When they announce Losing It and the two guys in the crowd high five. Playing Losing It, Alex and Ben Mink having a laugh on the stage while playing. Towards the end of the interlude when the intro to Tom Sawyer hits and everyone cheers. And always my favourite part of most Rush shows, "Concert hall!" and all the cheers that follow, gives me goosebumps every time!
