  1. Ok, now the video is working. GRRRRRRRR. I do not understand this production company's fascination with documenting an audience instead of the band. THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING AND DISAPPOINTING. A few shots are fine, but constant shots from the cheap seats??? Memo -- the people sitting there wish they were up front!!! They would go up front if they could. SO FILM FROM THERE!!! We get it, ... it is really artsy to get that shot from the crowd with the silhouette of someone raising their hands to cheer. Maybe once every few songs, that is cool. Or someone singing along. But damn it -- not 20 times in every SONG. Oh, and yes, we're impressed that you have wheels on your cameras and booms. I guess they really are so novel that they deserve to be used in almost every shot. Here's a hint if anyone ever lets you do this again, ... when a band breaks into a guitar solo with one of rock's legendary guitarists on the stage playing it, it is not rocket science to figure out that this is NOT the moment to cut to the "arena cam"!!!! I want to scream. This may be the last live rush video we get, and we're stuck with more of this crap. As I go on in life I'm going to have to wear out Snakes and Arrows Live -- the last good capture. The audio here is awesome, the band here is awesome. I'm happy that Fabdoo or Faboo or whatever they are made a great documentary a few years ago. They suck at conveying a live performance. The worst part is I know it is too late to do anything about this.

  4. I've been a Rush fan for 37 years. I've bought every record seen every tour, I'm an UBER fan but I can no longer stand Geddy's voice. He just sounds like he struggling. It's very very sad because I wish they could go on forever. If your at the show he comes off a lot better but on Blue Ray I just sadly can no longer enjoy them. I will still support anything they do and I hope they make another record because I so love their songwriting and playing.

  5. The guy"s in his 60's. You can't sing like that for 40 years and not loose some man! He's still the best overall music talent around!

  7. I still love Rush, but I have to concur with Alan to a degree. If Geddy Lee had received formal voice training back in the early days, he would be in much better shape today, because they teach you proper breath control, singing through the diaphragm, and other techniques to reduce wear and tear on vocal chords. Now, on most songs, he has to sing falsetto even where he used to sing in his normal range. Even so, they are still excellent musicians and I would pay to see them again. Let's face it, "Power Windows" came out 30 years ago!
