About R30: 30th Anniversary World Tour

R30: 30th Anniversary World Tour is a live DVD, released in November of 2005. It documented the band’s R30: 30th Anniversary Tour, and 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.

Alex recalled the strategy for assembling parts of the setlist for the R30 tour:

“We felt it was important to touch on all of our periods of songwriting. At the same time, it’s tough to go back to a song like ‘Finding My Way,’ and play the full version 70 nights in a row. As it was, the show was more than three hours long. It was actually Neil’s idea to put together this little overture, and keep it instrumental. It gave us the opportunity to get warmed up, and showcase a lot of these old songs–which made our older fans really happy. The crowd was just smiling the whole time–especially when we did ‘Bangkok’ and ‘Bastille Day.’ They haven’t heard those songs in a zillion years.”
