A Show of Hands is a live album by Canadian rock band Rush, released in 1989. The band released a video of the same name, originally on VHS. The title of this release is taken from a line on the Hold Your Fire track Prime Mover: “”alternating currents force a show of hands””.

The album was recorded in Birmingham (UK), New Orleans, Phoenix, and San Diego during the 1988 Hold Your Fire tour as well as in the Meadowlands (East Rutherford, NJ) during the 1986 Power Windows tour. The opening track “”Intro”” features the Three Stooges theme song playing in the background; the band used this jingle to open many of their concerts during the 1980s.

Geddy Lee – bass guitar, synthesizers, vocals
Alex Lifeson – electric and acoustic guitars, synthesizers
Neil Peart – drums, percussion

For a band with high standards, a perfect show is impossible, and an excellent show is rare. You hope that the norm is “good.” Rush make the impossible possible and deliver  exceptional  performances

I recommend it to anyone who wants to get a glimpse of Rush back in their prime. This video is an excellent archive of 1980s Rush.

5.0 out of 5 stars   A Great Video of Rush Live
This was during Rush’s highly successful “Hold Your Fire” tour. At the time (1989), Rush was at the peak of their popularity, although they did release some good albums afterwards, such as “Presto”. The songs on this are first-rate and feature Neil, Alex, and Geddy in all of their glory. I haven’t heard a drummer that can match Neil Peart’s intensity, while Alex’s guitar playing is top notch and Geddy’s bass and harmonic keyboard playing are unparalleled.
All of Rush’s classic hits are performed on this video, as well as several from the “Hold Your Fire”, which happens to be my personal favorite. From the melodic “Closer to the Heart” to the fast-paced “Marathon”, Rush doesn’t miss a beat with their high-energy progressive rock and roll. I highly recommend this fine concert video. Watch it and experience the “Rush”.

5.0 out of 5 stars The next best thing…
If you couldn’t be there, you can at least see them on tape. Being an old veteran of many a Rush tour, this was one of the better ones.  It is difficult to believe Geddy’s accuracy on the bass until you see it. Geddy, Alex, and Neil are not just musicians, but ARTISTS. Not just talented, but GIFTED. This is a rare chance to see this special band at the summit of their career. Add this to your collection. You’ll find yourself wearing it out. This is the greatest band in music history, playing their guts out in concert, like they always have for their fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars
This captures the true essence of a ‘Rush’ performance. I saw the “Hold Your Fire Tour” in Binghamton NY. The emotion and energy is faithfully captured, and you have the best seats in the house.  I wish I had the words to describe their musicality. If Wolfgang Amedeus Mozart were accidentally brought to the future, and I was the first person he met, I would play this for him. He would feel right at home because Alex, Geddy and Neil are modern day Baroque musicians. I do not pay such high respect lightly. They can play in any numeric figure, and even stretch measures to suit their purposes. They convey emotions with instrumentation and flair.  It is a definite classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars  Not just another LIVE LP
Of all the music and groups and concerts put on vinyl in the 80″s, this is perhaps the best. Three men doing what they love…playing music and having fun. Great music from that spans the entire 80’s decade from probably the most underrated band in the world–Rush. If you have never seen them in concert, buy this, turn it up to 11. You’ll   hear why Rush is one of the best power trios ever. From the cartoon opening to Neil Peart’s stunning drum solo to the classic finish, this video is what concerts should be-fun. A must have for every one who likes great rock music

5.0 out of 5 stars  What a Rush!
this it is a great show all of the songs that you love are here it is a must for Rush fans ..

5.0 out of 5 stars   Rush – a must for anyone who enjoys progressive art
It’s hard to state the excellence of this 2LP after reading the reviews. I’ve owned this since it’s release date and it’s still my favorite.


With the turmoil raging from 1982 to 1989 over the increased use of synthesizer’s in Rush’s music, Marathon serves as a perfect balance of both sides of the band’s character, with both Lee’s keyboards and Lifeson’s guitar taking their respective bows.

Lee’s opening bass encapsulates the rhythm of the marathon runner, and the song also serves writer Neil Peart as an allegory for life itself – keep going, tackle life’s obstacles, but don’t push yourself too hard and burn out on the way.
