This release is dedicated to all the Hubbies (Rush DC Hubsters) who invaded Las Vegas to witness Rush's great performance on a hot and humid July evening.? Thanks (once again) to Charles C., Ledzepzoso and I gave up our much closer seats for Section L seats. We were DEAD F'IN CENTER (DFC)!!! If you drew an imaginary line from the SBD to Neil, the line would split mine and Ledzepzoso's seats.? I approximate that we were approximately 25' in FOB, almost dead center of the arena.? The mix was no doubt awesome from where we were sitting. The bass was brutally punchy and the highs were detailed crisp.? This show was the first indoor show of the R30 Tour, and I decided to run the hyper-cardioids to reject some of the hall ambiance.? Geddy's vocals are not as defined as the Anitoch show in May, but his bass really comes through nicely.
Lastly, there was a group of "backup singers" behind us chanting and singing. However, they're somewhat back in the mix.
Mastering notes include: slight mid-bass cut and high end boost, channel balancing and some basic cleanup.
Few amplitude adjustments were made and the entire show was normalized fully to 0dB.
Lastly, a sincere thanks to my taping bud, Ledzepzoso, who endured MANY roadtrips to way-too-many cities in our quest of that "perfect tape"!? Please do not convert to MP3 or other lossy formats and TRADE FREELY. (2004-07-28)

Another excellent recording from the R30 tour. This will be one of the few US shows that is recorded indoors, so you get that "arena ambience" that can't be captured from an outdoor venue. Whether that is a pro or con is up to you.
The recording captured everything nicely. The mid-range bass is quite strong, and it tends to drown out the vocals at times. A very minor complaint as the overall sound is great! The performance is energetic and you also get quite a bit of audience participation. They are never heavy in the mix so it adds some nice ambience. (2004-09-02)

An AMAZING show from the R30 tour. Rivals "30 Years Strong" as best overall boot from this tour. Sound is PERFECT and crystal-clear the whole way through. A must-have boot. (2004-10-23)

When introducing "Subdivisions", Geddy says that this next song comes from Subdivisions album; then, he corrects himself. Alex performs during two minutes a serious discussion between two bugs (two bees I think). Besides those two moments, nothing more to point out about this audience recording. (2007-08-07)

Excellent show...excellent recording. We were at this show, my 1st RUSH show, though I've been a fan for years. (2007-08-28)
