Other Notes

•  Eight songs from the concert, "Bravado", "YYZ", "The Trees", "One Little Victory", "Secret Touch", "Red Sector A", "La Villa Strangiato",
   and "By-Tor And The Snow Dog", were dropped from the DVD release but later included on the Blu-Ray release.
•  The DVD was released in a standard and deluxe set. The deluxe version features two audio CDs of the DVD content as well as various
   interviews and extra live footage.
•  The Blu-Ray edition does not include the aforementioned bonus features previously released as the second disk of the DVD release.
•  Bittersweet Bundle Of Misery, an instrumental piece which plays as the credits roll at the end of the R30 concert DVD, as well as in the
   "The Anthem Vault" menu on the second DVD, was written and performed by Alex Lifeson.
•  There are two Easter Eggs in the R30 DVD Release. Here are the instructions for accessing both:
Easter Egg #1: From disc 2's opening menu, hit the 'Right' arrow key on your remote three times. The menu will reload with a new item, Rush Hits St. John's. Select the item to view the clip.

Easter Egg #2: From disc 2's opening menu, go to the Interviews section. Once there, highlight the menu entry Interviews and Anthem Vault and then click the 'Right' arrow on your remote three times. The guy with the broom on the left of the screen will highlight yellow. Press the 'Enter' key on your remote and you will see Alex's Interview for Artist of the Decade.
