Happy 10th anniversary Rush in Rio!
10:34AM EST | comments |

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Rush's 5th live album and 1st live concert DVD, Rush in Rio. The 3-disc live album and 2-dvd set were released simultaneously on October 21st, 2003. The performance was recorded and filmed at Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on the final night of Rush's 2002 Vapor Trails Tour. The album was certified Gold on February 10, 2004 and the DVD was certified 7X multi-Platinum on September 1, 2010. Rush in Rio was Rush's first live album which did not fall into their normal pattern of releasing a live album after every four studio releases, and was also the first to present a single night's performance in its entirety. The video release won the Juno Award for Music DVD Of The Year in 2004, and the track O Baterista was nominated (but didn't win) for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 2005. Here's the video of the band's performance of YYZ from the DVD:
