RUSH to release Snakes & Arrows Live on Blu-Ray!
Here is the official announcement from Rush.com:
November 25th! It looks like this one will be loaded. The entire show from the first leg plus extras from the second leg and even one song from the R-30 tour that was left off of that DVD. This is a must have for RUSH fans!

I'm disappointed that there won't be a complete performance of 2112 on this release - it's their best track.
Still a definite buy for me, though.Sniper General / KillerHobbit

Best news all year.
I was hoping they'd at least do R30 on blu-ray because it is, technically, a phenomenal video.
I was dissapointed in the audio from the Rush in Rio dvd, so I was hoping that it wouldn't be the first blu-ray they made..
Hell, they just got around to releasing a few others that were only available on VHS not to long ago, so to have one coming out on blu ray already is great.
If it's not Rush...Whats the point.

Recently got into the band, I'll definitely be grabbing this.
Man it's nice to see a lot of high profile concert releases. I was afraid a lot of concerts would be padded out over the next couple years, like how some studios are handling catalog titles.Blu-ray's: 234

Truly awesome news (enough to get me to finally register here - been lurking for months).
I've got everything they've ever released (minus studio compilations), and I've been crossing my fingers that this tour would see a Blu-ray 'post-card' to the fans. These guys truly respect their fans!!!
Curious where the BD Audio specs were listed - the release on the website only spoke of the DVD audio specs. Either way - relieved to know there will be lossless audio - got to put that AVR-1909 to work.

I just saw this show last night, let me tell you, it's the best concert on film from RUSH, better than Rio and R30, by far!!
I have a new favorite!!

Thanks for the bump...I didn't realize the date was here...I'll be getting this tonight.

Just got my copy home and am running through it at this moment.
Curiously, it's 1080i.
Scared me a little because it starts with the video that opens the concert and that looks like crap, visually.
Once the concert kicks in, though, it's pretty sweet.
Still looks a little 'video-ish', compared to the feeling of 'being there' (like the Alice Cooper: Montreaux blu-ray), but the quality's still there, nonetheless."Would of"? "Could of"?? "Should of"??? I long for the day people realize that "of" is not a verb and that it'll never be possible to "of" something...

Picked mine up tonight, but am reserving Turkey day for the play through....I get in weird Rush moods where I'll play them non-stop - and Thursday will be one of those days.
Tw great things about this video:
1) It was the last one available...Day of release, and I got the very last one..For a Rush fan like me, thats awesome to hear.
2) $19.99? Seriously? I went in to BestBuy expecting to lay down $39.99 or so - it rang up for little over $20.00...I double checked the price online when I got home and sure enough, list price is $19.99...Holy hell, that is the deal of the century.
