• 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 audience recording is from one of the same performances as the "A Show Of Hands" video concert, however unlike the video, this recording does not have any songs missing from the full setlist performed. There is also a soundboard recording of this performance, however is missing Limelight and Red Lenses. The "A Show Of Hands" video is comprised of footage from the three nights Rush performed in Birmingham in 1988, April 21, 23, and 24. This is the second night in Birmingham. Also note that the official audio version of "A Show Of Hands" is not the same performance, rather handpicked recordings from different dates of the Hold Your Fire and Power Windows tours.

There is also a rare recording of a soundcheck at this venue prior to this performance.


lol, I meant to make my last comment on this post. Most of the audio from the video version of ASOH seems to be from this night. A lot syncs up really good, and like i said before you can hear the guitar string brake in Tom Sawyer at the end and make that same cool sound
