I got i for my dad for christmas and we watched it today. In my opinion, it gets better as they play the older songs. There's no doubt that Geddy's voice is aged and it shows on some parts but Xanadu is just so f***ing good. It's a little hard to watch for me knowing that it's hard on them.

I agree with you that it becomes better as they play the older material. In fact I personally stick to the 2nd set and encore when I watch the blu-ray.

Audio, everything sounds clear (guitar, bass, keys, vocals, drums (kick, snare, most toms and cymbals (Especially Neil's Ride cymbal and high hat - Superb), occasionally Neil's mid range toms  and some of the crash cymbals getting buried in the mix a bit.
...
His ride and hi-hat?  They are completely inaudible most of the time. Once in a while I hear them and wonder who turned that mic on by accident. His snare is heard kind of, sometimes. It certainly never cuts through, with only a few exceptions. He is cracking on it pretty good in the latter half of JL, but listen to the snare work at the beginning. Is he even playing?

The crash cymbal in the quiet section in the middle is almost inaudible as well.
Yeah, the chinas on the 7/8 section when they come back in. You know the ones on beat 1-6-7-1. Can't hear them at all.
It makes me hot when you talk all technical. Let me return the favor:


Traci....dear,dear Traci.

Still haven't got R40 live yet because our local music shop not stocking it and its not on their online catalogue(I am guessing that its only avaidable on import over here in Oz due to Rush's mega non popularity over here).I have just ordered it through a small great import shop I have been going to for years(Music Without Frontiers,there's a plug Stefan,you cranky old bugger).Spotify and You Tube will suffice till then.P.S.A local liquidator shop has been throwing out great music dvd and blurays for three bucks a pop,mostly Eagle Vision stuff like Rush,ZZ Top,Dream Theater,Deep Purple,etc,my collection instantly went up by 100 titles.Is the end of cd/dvd not that far away?

I just finished watching the rest of it last night. Very pleased, although some of the audience video was poorly timed and unnecessary. I want to see Rush, not the goofball fans.

There were several shots of 4 guys in matching red jump suits from the audience. Does anyone know if that's the tribute band that posted some videos on TRF sometime last year? I remember them performing in matching jump suits and looking like Devo.

I am finally going to sit down and watch this tonight. I got the blue-ray for christmas from my kids (along with the new calendar which has been a xmas tradition forever). This was the first tour I missed since AFTK so it will be a happy/sad time.

that sucks. If I was going to Austrailia  I'd smuggle a few copies for you. Amazon doesn't dominate the universe in Aussie like the states?

If you ever feel so inclined, start a thread in the Rush section and tell us about your experiences at seventies' Rush concerts. :) If you remember that is.  :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am old fashioned and boring and don't like shopping online,don't like downloads,etc.I just like going to the shop  and supporting them.Rush are just not that well known over here and the few that know of them thought they broke up years ago.Anyway R40 live should be here any day now.

Actually it was a mistype and should say since before AFTK. I was only 14 in April '78 when I saw my first ever arena concert which was Rush & Max Webster. Blew me away! Already owned All the Worlds a Stage but immediately went out and got all the other albums. They returned that December for a Hemi show and I have never looked back. Don't recall the small details but I have seen hundreds of shows (24 Rush) but those 2 stand out more than any others

You saw them during the Hemispheres tour?  You have my admiration.  :) That and two dollars will get you a cup of coffee somewhere.  ;)

Wish I could still see them for the $6.50 I paid back then :facepalm:

I loved the CD/DVD no complaints here! :) :rush:

This is how I feel, too. I just got it last week; watched the DVD one time all the way through, and loved it. Haven't listened to the CDs yet, though.

I don't think it was really necessary for Alex to say, "f**k you, puppet", but it did kind of make me laugh a little bit. :lol:

I agree.  I stop the dvd right before it gets to that.  Totally unnecessary, and seemingly out of character for Alex, or any of them.

I rewatched the dvd earlier today and I had forgotten that he says "I'm sorry I yelled at the puppet" a few moments later. But the whole Exit Stage Left video has a weird vibe around it, especially when we know Neil runs off to his bus the moment the last beat drops.

And I'm still kind of disappointed they didn't add any special features on the dvd.

I think they are saving any special features they might have added to R40 Live for a future dvd down the road.
