Who cares what Bottrill did on the VT remix?  Listen to the TFE footage on the R40 box set.  Aside from their live recordings form the 70s, that's the best, most honest representation of live Rush audio.

I have posted this in the past,

I go into the concert knowing he is going to struggle at times. He is not 25 any more. I never expect him to sing like he once did. Its just amazing he can still pull it off. I am just grateful that they are still playing. :codger:

I agree. It's been long enough now that we can see how his voice has declined. Eddie Trunk mentions that Ged knows his voice hasn't been the best the last 15 years or so, but he still goes out there and gives it his all. That's all anyone can do. Still, he sounds great this tour. Much less yodeling and much more real singing, even if he doesn't sound like he did at 25 he's still hitting some pretty high notes.

Yep,

When I go see them I pay close attention to there playing as individuals These guys are truly amazing!!

Thats good sh** right there! :haz: :rush:
Wow!  Just listened to this on a decent set of headphones.  The only regret that I have with regard to this tour is that Rush didn't play this particular piece when I saw them in San Jose.  

I remember listening to this song when Signals was first released.  It was quite depressing for me because it directly reflected what I was feeling when my grandparents were entering their twilight years.

Nonetheless, a beautiful composition.

Hell yeah he did.  He held out the "wish that I could do it all again" like crazy and the crowd showed appreciation.  The fact is that the guy is 62 (me thinks) years old and can't sing like he did when he was 24 but he's out there giving it his best.  Name one singer that in his or her 60's that can sing like they did in their 20's.....

I saw them in Denver and it was a fantastic show. They all played great and Geddy sounded good to me.

Geddy always sounds great. Always. Period. Even when he doesn't.  
A person's voice changes over time, it just does.  Then of course, there's allergies,infections,all kinds of things like that.
People should think about what Robert Plant used to sound like & what he sounds like now, Steven Tyler, Mick Jagger,etc.
Totally pisses me off when people are critical of Geddy's voice. Just be grateful he's still singing!

I was at the Vegas show as well. And yes Geddy certainly did "kill it".
A great vocal performance from someone of any age.

Just hope as I have said before that the performance DVD comes out spot on this time... :sigh:

+1
Take some time on this DVD/Blu Ray.  If this will be the last of the big productions available to us then do it right.  My requests would be audio production (please have some separation/depth in the audio) and camera cuts (less is more).  As a bonus some isolation camera views would be cool and any of the soundchecks as extras...
You shouldn't worry too much about audio, David Bottril is mixing it. He's the guy who remixed VT.
Geez. Now I feel better. Thanks...
Can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not. I thought he did a good job. It'll sound a hell of a lot better than CA Tour

He did a really good job but I thought he took too many liberties with the remix. I wish he would've listened to the original mix a little bit more.  But this should definitely sounds better than the CA tour

I recall reading an interview with Botrill and he said he didn't rely on the original mix. Here it is: http://popdose.com/t...trails-remixed/

"I didn’t really check the originals to see what they used or didn’t use."

Go watch Hemispheres Prelude from Denver on 7/11/15 and keep in mind that Geddy is 62!

There is some people that no matter how good or not he sounds they simply HATE his voice, don´t care about his bass playing, Alex´s playing and say Neil´s drums are a little bit" too loud" ; therefore they hate :rush: so I really do not care anymore...I just enjoy them......
