Another amazing Rush show. April 5th, 1988 was my first Rush concert so this was the 23rd anniversary of that show. I snagged 9th row dead center through the pre-sale and the sound was excellent.

The KFC Yum Center is a brand new arena that was opened on October 10th, 2010. It is a very nice arena despite the incredibly dumb name. I hate corporate naming rights.

I was slightly disappointed that they did not change the set list for this leg of the tour but it is still a great set. Seeing the entire Moving Pictures album played live is worth the price of admission for me. Unfortunately, during The Camera Eye some drunken idiot in the row in front of me was getting kicked out and he somehow managed to fall and injure himself. They had to bring in paramedics and a stretcher just to haul the fat slob out. The kids he was with were laughing about the whole deal, so my guess is that he was faking the injury. Thanks for ruining part of the show for the rest of us, jerk! Other than that, the set was flawless. The guys really seemed to be enjoying themselves and I even saw Neil smile a couple of times! I would definitely see this show again if I had the chance.

The world weighs on my shoulders but what am I to do?
