RUSH A Show of Hands- Censoring

Just saw the Show of Hands show on Pay per View Free channel.

After 2112 they censor something Alex says and they flash a huge "offensive comments" showing over the screen.

What the hell is this?

It is a joke about Alex's voice. He likes to act like he is singing during La Villa Strangiato...no censoring, just Rush humor.

I saw that on VH1 Classic. Because it was so overboard, I thought it was a joke of some kind.

On a related note, I noticed today that the CDs of Hemispheres at Circuit City are censored. The CD booklet is inserted backwards so you don't see the album art with the bare ass dude, just the name of the band and album. Lame.

So the whole thing was a joke? I thought Alex said something offensive to the Brishish or something, they made it out to be serious and all.

I've always wondered what he was actually saying during that. I'm glad they are showing this as I wore out my Show of Hands vhs tape.

I still have one of those balloons from their Houston show that year. I also came within about a foot or so from catching a drumstick (we had floor seats). ahhhh the memories!!
