Wow, that's a pretty lengthy set. Lots of great stuff, too.

yes no representation of Grace is bad but Rush didnt even do a song off the album this tour around so...:/ besides, songs like By-Tor, Xanadu, Anthem and other old songs totally make up for it.

I like Grace Under Pressure and a lot of the material after it, but :wtf:

Those are some of Rush's greatest songs on that set!

Yeah, I think it'd be hard to walk out of there and be like "that set sucked."

I talked to the Geddy guy after the third set and asked if they would ever do later stuff, like Time Stands Still, Distant Early Warning, or Earthshine, and he said no :lol:

He said that they are trying to play nothing but older songs, to capture that era. I told him ok but that next time they better play La Villa ;)

By 2112, do you mean ALL of 2112??? I just saw real Rush last night and it looks like the tribute show was longer than the real one...which is INSANE!

Yeah, they did pretty much all of it.

Well, they play for an hour, then take a break, play for another hour, another break, and play for another hour with maybe an encore. That's how all the tribute shows are at that place. Great venue to see great tribute bands.
