I’m currently listening to the CD version of Rush’s R30 concert, recorded in Frankfurt on 24th September 2004. It can only be described as an awesome recording. The sound quality is superb, the band are as tight as ever, and the song selection inspiring.
I have yet to watch the 2 DVDs contained in my special edition package (which also contains a couple of R30 plectrums and a “backstage pass”) but the quality of the audio CDs bodes well for the quality of the DVDs.
I’m particularly looking forward to watching Neil Peart performing “Der Tommler”. Each time I watch him play, I can’t help but be amazed at how he plays a drumkit that completely surrounds him and includes so many drums and other percussive instruments.
If you have a high-bandwidth connection, go to his web site www.neilpeart.net and check out the Quicktime VR image of his kit!
