I picked it up at best Buy for $14.88 last night.
Watched disc 1 and was blown away!!!!!

Sound - Awesome
Camerawork - Awesome
Video / colors - Awesome
Outtakes of What's That Smell
and the 2007 video intros - Awesome!!

Minor complaint - the POW from the pyro should be there for Far Cry.

Their best DVD by far!
Disc 2 tonight.

First impression:

Disc two is HOLY CRAP! :shock: :-D

Well... the second set of that show was amazing. We all remember that. So it's wonderful to have it captured on DVD. And we had some stuff in the first set that's never been on a DVD (or ever even performed live before) so it's a great souvenir as well. Watching the first DVD with my daughter they started playing Digital Man and I was very pleasantly surprised. I'd actually forgotten they did that! (getting senile, I guess)

As was stated earlier:
Sound - Awesome
Camerawork - Awesome
Video / colors - Awesome
The sound might actually be a little too clean for a live DVD, but that's a matter of preference. :) I only say that because I remember being in the audience and watching The Main Monkey Business and when Alex started playing those really percussive chords I felt like I was being punched in the chest by them. On the DVD, even turned up loud, that's just not there. It's very clean.

However, I still think Rush in Rio remains the most exciting of all the Rush DVD's. A lot of that is attributable to the audience.

But don't get me wrong, I'm excited to have this and will watching it over and over! :-D
