Rush -- Buffalo, NY -- October 20th, 1996

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)

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.
