Good for Rush fans

It was worth getting to see my favorite band on the big screen. It was especially neat to see Alex and Geddy do a lot of their switching and pedalwork. I'm not sure if this sold me on purchasing the DVD, but it was a fun night.

RUSH CLOCKWORK ANGELS TOUR

Mayfair Cinema 16 & IMAX, Wilmington, NC.... Audio was horrible, and loud! Sounded like a coffee can with a marble rolling around in it, the size of a Freight Train!!! All Mid Range, NO low, NO highs, painful to my ears, physically!!! All from center, No Surround. Insult to the Band! If you have never seen RUSH live before last night in Wilmington, NC @ Mayfair, you probably never will !!! Theatre Dude said it was because it was Streaming, I didnt just fall off the Turnip Wagon. He asked if he could turn it up for us, I begged him not to!!! I feel terrible I dragged my Wife and Nine year old Daughter out for an evening of ear drum damaging garbage. Not sure I can go out and purchase the BlueRay now, don't want to relive the horrors!!! I would like my MONEY BACK!!!

The concert rocks, the presentation did not

I LOVED this tour and was very excited to see the whole concert - the 2 1/2 hours I was promised - on the big screen, drumming away. What we got was a poor audio quality film (as everyone who reviewed on the Rush facebook page had the same issue) that only showed the second half of the concert and then included the DVD extra interviews. While I love to hear the guys talk about their tour, I came to see a 2 1/2 hour concert. This was greatly misrepresented by Fathom. I dont blame the band but the promoters. LOTS of disappointed fans out there, including me. They should try this again with JUST the concert and a new audio track so you can actually hear the drums and the vocals!

Movie okay, theater was horrible.

I like the old Rush stuff and found it hard to listen to all the new Clockwork Angels material. So the second half was great, anyway. However, it was not IMAX, the sound quality was horrible -- even the interviews were distorted and the New Rochelle, NY theater at New Roc City just did not have the sound system. It was like listening to a concert through a distorted hand-held megaphone with no bass and very weak bass drum. Disappointing when you are a Geddy / Neil fan. It's probably a great movie if you like their new material and if you go to a decent theater.

Film is Probably Fine; Fathom Events are Terrible

I'm sure the Rush film is awesome...they always are. But the satellite feed at the location where I saw the film (or at least part of it), was a disaster. The video quality was terrible, but the worst part was the sound. Fathom (or whoever) only transmitted some of the audio channels, so we got no bass frequencies, and they all came out of the tinny little speakers at the front of the movie house. No Dolby, Surround, etc. We had to walk out it was so bad. Note that while we got our ticket prices refunded, we did not recover the $4.00 convenience charge that we paid when we bought through Fandango, because the movie theater couldn't reimburse us for the third party charge. It definitely will affect whether I make any movie purchases online at Fandango.
