Since Irritated Trout just went to his first Rush show I decided to post the set from the first time I saw them live.

Set One

Intro (Thus Spake Zarathustra from 2001: A Space Odessy)
Dreamline
The Big Money
Driven
Half The World
Red Barchetta
Animate
Limbo
The Trees
Red Sector A
Virtuality
Nobody's Hero
Closer To The Heart
2112 (IN FULL):drool:

Set Two

Test For Echo
Subdivisions
Freewill
Roll The Bones
Resist
Leave That Thing Alone!
The Rhythm Method (Drum Solo)
Natural Science
Force Ten
Time And Motion
The Spirit Of Radio
Tom Sawyer

Encore
YYZ
Cygnus X-1: Book I (Just a little bit of the intro only)

Even though I saw them from the front row ealier this month, this still remains my favorite show from them. The song selection was excellent and to have all of 2112 and NS in the same show was unbelieveable. The band was great, just as they continue to be today. I also saw them twice the following summer the only changes I remeber is that TBM was dropped for Limelight and they also did Stick It Out. I think they dropped Red Sector A for that. The only change in set two was Time & Motion being dropped.

Along with seeing the Metallica/Guns N Roses stadium tour in 1992 this remains among my best concert memories.

I love Test For Echo, seeing that tour would've been awesome.

How was the crowd reaction to all of 2112.

Pretty lame after Overture/Temples but then again the song does mellow down a lot after that. Still I didn't hear too many people singing along with it at all after Temples was done:confused:

They most certainly did play it. Both me and my brother, who went with me remember it.

Plus, my source for getting the order of the set right is this:

No Rush fan can argue with this source at all:D

No, it was played like the regular album version

To be honest, I've always seen this page as a top source on Rush's touring history and i've always found it's info very reliable, along with the Power Windows...A Tribute To Rush page. Who btw, also has T&M listed as being played and has the 3 Stooges intro for the VT tour.

If you don't believe me about T&M getting played just check with the guys over at The Rush Forum. I'm sure someone else will be able to confirm that over there.

As for the 3 Stooges intro on the VT tour, I honestly don't recall what they used as an intro that tour. The DVD didn't show the intro either but i'm positive as to what songs i've heard them do live before.

Time and Motion is one of my favorites but I honestly don't remember them playing it.
setlist fm doesnt list it but this guy has a DVD of it and he does list T&M
