4 stars Last year Rush was in Holland and there they prooved again that they are one of the greatest progrock bands, what a skills, visuals, energy and .. pleasure. After 30 years Rush playing together it's amazing what a tight unit this 'powersymfo' trio is, incredible! If I compare the actual Rush to the Rush on this video, I have to admit that there was in those years (I've seen them many times between 79 and 87) more magic and more pure musical excitement because Rush sounded so unique and they were so talented: that very moving guitar-solo (fine use of the tremolo-arm) in "Limelight", the great changing of climates between acoustic and electric in "The trees", the great buiil-up and stunning grand finale in "Xanadu" (spectacular view on the twin-necks from Geddy and Alex), the magnificent interplay in "YYZ", it all shows how exciting it wastoo witness Rush during a concert. Not only musical but also visual, Rush used funny cartoons, an advanced lightshow and it was great to see how enthousiastic Rush did their performances: you got the idea that every concert Rush gave 100% for their fans and they played material from every era. So fans from the heavy period were screaming and yelling together with the fans from the progressive era, wonderful! This is perhaps not the best live-footage but to me it's such an emotional experience because it evokes so many good memories.
