A Show of Hands

A Show of Hands is a live album by the Canadian rock band Rush, released in 1989. The band released a video of the same name, originally on VHS and laserdisc, the same year. A DVD version was released as part of a box set in 2006, and as an individual DVD in 2007.

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 "Three Blind Mice" playing in the background; the band used this jingle to open many of their concerts during the 1980s.

The video was made at the Birmingham (UK) show, one of the sources of the live album. The song order and selection of the video are different from the live album.

Famous quotes containing the word show:

    It is the curse of a certain order of mind, that it can never rest satisfied with the consciousness of its ability to do a thing. Still less is it content with doing it. It must both know and show how it was done.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)
