Zoe Vision in conjunction with Anthem Entertainment have announced that they will bring 'Rush: Snakes & Arrows Live' to Blu-ray on November 25th, day-and-date with the DVD release. The concert was filmed over the course of two nights in the Netherlands' Ahoy Rotterdam arena with high definition cameras.
Specific Blu-ray technical specs have yet to be revealed, but the DVD will have a 5.1 Dolby Digital or 2.0 PCM soundtrack, so expect at least as much for the Blu-ray. Disc-by-disc breakdowns of track listings and extras can be seen below:

Same here - no lossless = no buy. I seriously doubt these dudes would go all the way releasing a blu
disk without top of the line audio. Can't wait! Now if Genesis would get their sh@t together and get
the Rome concert out on blu life would be good.
If this comes out on Blu without Lossless audio, I say no one buy a BD version and we boycott! This would be such a letdown to release on Blu without a lossless audio format. There will be no reason for me to spend the extra cash for BD if it does not have a lossless audio. So plllllleeeeaassseee ......... let this come out with ANY lossless format!! Ans I promise to buy 2 BD's!!!!
<< Rush has always been ahead of the curve. I doubt that they will let a blu-ray of theirs be released if it's not the best possible disc. >>
Please. They released "Rush in Rio" in non-anamorphic letterboxed DVD, just because the behing-the-drum-kit cameras were of lower quality than the rest, and they wanted everything to look the same. So they lowered the resolution of everything. Real "ahead of the curve" there! (Oh yeah, they dropped the DTS track planned for that DVD, too.)
Oh yes Rush on blu-ray.... I saw this tour live... Great show... I hope they release all their concerts that are currently avaible on DVD on Blu-ray.... Ah a drum solo by Neal Peart in stunning blu-ray sound and picture it warms the heart....
