Canadian prog rock giants Rush, captured during their 1984 world tour, performing their best known hits (Closer To The Heart, Tom Sawyer). The trio of virtuosi - the ultimate band's-band was at the height of its synthesizer period - touring the 'Grace Under Pressure' album - an album awash in Geddy Lee's synth noodlings but ushering in drummer Neal Pert's use of synthesized drums and thus initiating a new, more majestic and anthemic-sounding era for the band.

They left out a lot of the concert which was disappointing. What's a Rush concert without a Peart solo?

The ones I've asterisked are the only tunes I'd want to hear at this stage, and why isn't the "Red Lenses" drum solo on this collection? Yeah, Geddy's Steinberger L sounds probably better than any other bass he's ever played, but why dredge up old songs to play it on? IMO, they should've focused on post-Moving Pictures, even if that was only a dozen or so songs. You're better off watching _A Show of Hands_, but in that video Geddy's playing a Wal bass throughout. Not the same tone. This is only my (rhythm section player's) opinion. Maybe the DVD in question would've been better had they included "Red Lenses" with the drum solo and perhaps cut some of the recycled stuff.
There's more. At this point in their game, Rush was incredibly cocky. Alex is chewing gum, doing break dance antics onstage... it was the whole band, really. They thought they were invincible, immortal. It's better to see them as mature, as in _Rush in Rio_ and from there on. Rush - Rush in Rio By then, they'd suffered some adversities and still just wanted to give a good show - which was what it was about from the beginning.
