  • This footage was shot by Jeff Turkali during the Hemispheres tour. Audio sync by ledzepfilm.
  • As with any 8mm audience footage from this era, full songs and concerts were not able to be captured due to the short length of the film reels.
  • Also as is the case with many 8mm reels of the era, the film used did did not concurrently record audio, so the resulting footage was silent. However, in our present day era, it is fairly easy to sync these old silent 8mm film clips with audio recordings. Since there is no known audience audio recording of this date, audio of the 10 March 1979 concert in Hollywood, Florida was used to sync and bring more life to this very rare footage of Rush.
