Clockwork Angels Tour
Frequently bought together
Rush Clockwork Angels Tour captures the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers' 2012-2013 sold-out tour from a unique point-of-view approach to filmmaking utilizing distinct composition and a voyeuristic style that at varying moments puts the viewer on the stage, at the side of the stage, and throughout the arena. For the first time ever the legendary band (Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, Neil Peart) was accompanied on this tour by an eight-piece string section! This electrifying 2-DVD or single Blu-ray concert (both formats contain the same content) features over 3 hours of music including favorites Tom Sawyer and The Spirit of Radio, 3 drum solos, new string arrangements of classics such as YYZ, Dreamline and Red Sector A, and rarely performed songs such as The Body Electric and Middletown Dreams. Extensive bonus features include a full version of Limelight from soundcheck and an exclusive backstage documentary shot throughout Europe. With over 40 million albums sold worldwide and more consecutive gold and platinum awards than any other rock band following The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Rush remains one of the most inventive, compelling, and relevant musical groups today.

Now that the band has officially retired, this is the single best example of their work, at the top of their craft. Get it before it's gone, cuz they don't make this stuff no more.

This DVD covers a lot of the concert I seen and then some more or less in other cases. Though it is really up to the band to pick the set list to play each night of a gig and in what order. This double DVD set is worth its weight in Big Money terms and full of extra and bonus material. When RUSH put together their DVD packages they really give you top Canadian Dollar worth of footage and some slap stick comic routines for amusement, then finding out there are even more extras as termed Easter Eggs hidden within.
So I am off to watch my Red Sector A to YYZ, to re-enjoy my past glory highlight and re-live that concert over again with my "YOU GOING" buddy, and three Neil Peart drum solo's (The Anarchist - lol), the easy pickings of Alex (The Analog Kid), and the heavy thimbles of Geddy's (The Percussor) fingers on the bass and keyboard that is my favourite Power Trio in the Seven Cities of Gold.
The performance is as usual a high standard, I've no issue with G.L. vocal as its ageing what do expect, for someone who's one of the Best Bass Players on the planet, I will be more concerned about his playing, which to me is great.
On to the Audio mix. Like many they are justified in their observations and I too will subscribe to the disappointment.
It makes no difference whether the speakers are small or large as one comment alluded to. In 5.1. the mix seems to have too much ambient at the front and the sub woofer almost acts as a centre speaker which is a strange decision. To compensate, I kept the audio in in DTS and switch it to a 'Downmix' therefore I was able to hear all three members.
It was interesting to hear some songs not performed since the release of the studio albums, so I will say that was worth the cost.
I own quite a few Rush DVDs and I really have no intention of replacing all of them on Blue-Ray, although I may get R30 as my final Rush one.
I've also purchased the R40 BR too so my review will be done soon.
What can I say about Rush ? If your a fan buy this , it’s worth it , good camera angles and plenty of extras on the disc which I have not yet watched , the parcel arrived quicker than expected and was well packed !
The first half sees the band delving back into the "extensive" back catalogue, playing some of their best versions of older classics. Excellent though this is, for me the concert comes alive in the second part when the strings make their appearance on set.
The Clockwork Angels set fairly and quite literally explodes onto the stage and the audience fair takes the roof off. A brilliant set.
Well worth owning. I have the Rio Tour, R30, Snakes & Arrows and Time Machine 2011 (prelude to Angels) tour DVDs.
Clockwork Angels is still a must have for live renditions of some older songs not played live for years, but eh Clockwork Angels set is truly superb. Rush at the very best.
