This review is from: Rush: Time Machine 2011 - Live in Cleveland (DVD)
As a 50 year young RUSH fanatic, having seen them live 45 times in 4 states since 1977, I have come to expect a lot from Geddy, Alex, and Neil in terms of their music and their live concerts. This is one classic rock band that has raised the bar for many others in terms of their quality music, studio perfection, and killer live shows. This 'Live In Cleveland' show is no exception. It delivers in every way! There is the very humorous 'time machine' vignettes that are part of the live show, that are seamlessly intertwined with the live music, and the infectious smiles and banter between the band. The audience was 'on fire' and clearly enthused and entertained. The DVD editing is superb, with just the right dose of great closeups of the 3 maestros performing magic on their instruments, the animated audience, and whole stage and arena shots. There are also a few 'extras', mainly a vintage video of 'Anthem' being performed at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ way back in the stone ages, and out-takes and bloopers from the 'time machine' vignettes. If you like Rush, this is a 'must own'. If you don't like Rush, this is a 'must own' as well!

As a 53 year young Rush fan since I heard Hemispheres in the early 70's I have been an avid fan.
My greatest regret is that I don't live in the northern hemisphere, because when Rush do a "world" tour, places like Australia apprently don't exist. So I have to rely on these snapshots of history, and this one is next to be sent my way.
Good thing Amazon knows where Australia is!

I would think getting all their stuff to AussyLand would cost a major fortune! Unfortunate, but I do think cost would be a major factor. Good to know they have fans out there though.
