RUSH: Snakes & Arrows Live
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Since the release of their eponymous first LP in 1974, Rush has continually expanded the definition of "progressive power trio." Guitarist Alex Lifeson, bassist/keyboardist/vocalist Geddy Lee and drummer/lyricist Neil Peart combine dazzling virtuosity, laser-beam intensity and unbridled creativity to create a cohesive whole that's infinitely greater than its parts. The Toronto-based group has become one of Canada's leading exports, with a catalog of genre-defining releases including 2112, Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures, Vapour Trails and Snakes & Arrows and a live show which combines musicianship, showmanship and multi-media effects that engage all the senses. Following their previous best-selling DVDs Rush in Rio and R30, Snakes & Arrows Live presents a band not resting on its considerable laurels but still earning its reputation as one of the world's best live bands - one night at a time.

With that said, having seen the show twice on leg 1 and 3 times on leg 2, I can say the contents of this DVD compared to my memory of the five shows I saw ranks equal to the second best of those two and thus slightly less than the best show out of all five.
The first leg shows were unique in that not 1, but 3 songs that either had not been played live at all (Entre Nous) or not in roughly 24 years or more (Digital Man, Circumstances) were included in the setlist. Only Digital Man remained from those 3 in the second leg. However, Ghost of a Chance, a gem of a song from Roll the Bones, which had been sadly ignored since that tour, was added in place of Entre Nous on the second leg and a few more classic standards were played as well. This tour included the most material from a new album by Rush (Snakes & Arrows) since the late 80's, and the quality of the newest album warranted this.
Rush is the type of band that likes to settle on a set list and continue perfecting the execution of it throughout the tour.Read more ›
Thank you Geddy, Alex, and Neil"

|Will Previous RUSH DVD's be released on Blu-Ray?||
R30 is out on Blu-ray. I doubt the Replay collection will be released on Blu-ray because "Grace Under Pressure" and "A Show of Hands" were shot on videotape and there would be no real gain in resolution if they were transferred to HD.
