Grace Under Pressure Tour is a concert released on videocassette, laserdisc, and DVD by the Canadian band Rush. It documents a live concert performance by the band on their 1984 tour in support of the studio album Grace Under Pressure.

Dates of release & formats

VHS videocassette and Laserdisc were the original formats of release, in 1985, under the title Grace Under Pressure Tour 1984. In addition to the "Grace Under Pressure" concert, the original releases also included a full-length music video for "The Big Money," a truncated version of which was released to outlets like MTV and on the short-lived CD Video format. This version of Grace Under Pressure Tour is currently out-of-print in both formats.

In 2006, a DVD version of the original production, with its audio re-mastered in 5.1-channel Dolby Surround by Rush guitarist and co-producer Alex Lifeson, was released as part of the DVD box set, titled Rush Replay X 3. In 2007, the DVD version of Grace Under Pressure Tour, as it was included in Replay X 3, was released as a single, stand-alone DVD. As a special feature, Rush Replay x 3 includes an audio CD of Grace Under Pressure Tour DVD that was unavailable elsewhere until a stand-alone CD release in 2009. The DVD release does not include the music video for "The Big Money."

The concert footage documented in Grace Under Pressure Tour was filmed at Maple Leaf Gardens, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.[1]
