Amazing, but that's to be expected

Great footage, beautiful quality and it was pure joy to see them on "the big screen". I think some people in the theater forgot it was a movie because hands were in the air as though we were at a live performance!

Rush Works Them Angels

Fathom Events hosted a "one night only" event at cinemas across North America last night with the premier of Rush's "Clockwork Angles" Tour. Since I have not been able to make it to a Rush concert in many tours, I can only marvel at how their stage show has grown. The one main screen and the 10 smaller screens that moved above the stage added to imagery and enhanced each song. For the first time ever, the band was joined onstage by other musicians, The Clockwork Angles Strings. The addition of violins and cellos put a slight spin on classics and propelled the newer songs. The documentary itself really provided an unparalleled view of the show, moving over the massive audience and tight close ups of Ales's and Geddy's playing. A camera in the drum kit showed the concentration of Neil Peart as he worked his double set of drums and other percussion instruments. My only complaint was the sound. Very loud and overally distorted at the beginning. Seemed to get better

Next best thing to being there! Every aspect was perfectly done as perfectly as Rush plays music!

The idea of watching a concert at the movies seemed alien at first, but it didn't take me long to put two and two together. When you go to a concert anymore (especially a Rush one), you see the band on a big screen more than you do up close and there are so many interstitial video bits that it just makes sense to put the whole thing on a movie screen. Is some of the atmosphere lost? Well, yes, but there was still audience participation and I could bring my kids without worrying about the drunks, stoners, smokers, part-time nudists, and fornicators getting in the way. I think that's a fine trade off. They just needed some local vendor selling merch to make it perfect, but that's what the internet is for, so, no harm, no foul! As to this particular concert, it was fantastic, with the addition of a live orchestra and exceptional camera work, so good on you, director. Getting the extra bits before the concert and after was just icing on an already delicious cake. I will go again!
