My first Rush show still holds a special place in my heart. This was an outstanding show even though the setlist was dominated by 80's era tunes. This was the first time I had seen Neil Peart's drum solo live and I was speechless. The amazing thing is that his solo has just gotten better with every tour. The unfortunate opening act got booed mercilessly for their entire short set. It has to be tough opening for a band like Rush.
