My first time seeing Rush and they were AMAZING! Like, I knew it would be great, but I didn't expect to be blown away like that. The videos were funny, the special effects were cool, the guys looked like they were having fun, and the musicianship was mindblowing. I knew Geddy was a great bassist and he was always one of my favorites but I have a new-found respect for his playing now that I've seen him live.

Sold out show but the crowd was still a bit lame. I guess that's to be expected with so many old fans wearing polos in attendance. It's the first time I've heard Caravan and BU2B and I thought Caravan was so-so but BU2B was great. I liked Geddy's remark about how it was fitting for the high holidays.
