R30: 30th Anniversary World Tour is a live DVD by the Canadian band Rush, that was released on November 22, 2005 in Canada and the U.S. and November 28, 2005 in Europe, therein documenting the band's R30: 30th Anniversary Tour. The DVD 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.

The released product saw the omission of songs "Bravado", "One Little Victory", "By-Tor And The Snow Dog", "La Villa Strangiato", "YYZ", "Red Sector A", "The Trees", and "Secret Touch" as these tracks were already featured on the Rush in Rio DVD, a full concert in Brazil on the last night of the band's 2002 Vapor Trails Tour. This was done to eliminate redundancy. This modified set-list is heard on both the DVD, as well as a deluxe edition audio soundtrack. "Red Sector A" would later be released on the Snakes & Arrows Live DVD, "Secret Touch" was featured on the Retrospective 3 compilation DVD released on March 3, 2009, and "One Little Victory" was released on the live CD DVD compilation Working Men. "Bravado" and "YYZ" were included as bonus features for the DVD release of the 2010 documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage.

"Der Trommler" is a drum solo by Neil Peart. "R30 Overture" is an instrumental medley of six early Rush songs, one from each of the first six studio albums, with flashes of the band's history appearing in the background. This concert also features four songs from the band's 2004 "cover" EP Feedback.

A Blu-ray version containing the complete "R30" set was released on December 8, 2009.
