• May 2023 Update: Many apoligies for the extended period of inactivity, however many big changes for Rush Archives are now in progress. This should benefit everyone, and propel the site onward in the most realistic way possible. Thank you to those who have been supporting this project, and for being patient with the methods I've so far been operating. Further details will be coming soon.

This recording features an early live version of Subdivisions.
Hemispheres Prelude and Xanadu were temporarily dropped from the setlist for all German dates.
This recording cuts off towards the end of In The Mood, so is missing all of Grand Finale.
The recording then starts again for the encore with La Villa, but cuts off again about five minutes in.
This recording suffers from tape fluttering around Closer To The Heart that gets progressively worse from there and onward.
