Rush -- Buffalo, NY -- October 26th, 2012

Since I have no fuckin clue what that other poster was trying to accomplish on the other thread by only giving a partial setlist and the wrong date, I figured I create a proper one for it since you know, I WAS ACTUALLY THERE

Set One:

The Big Money
Force Ten
Grand Designs
The Analog Kid
Where's My Thing? (with Drum Solo)
Far Cry

Set Two:

Clockwork Angels
The Anarchist
The Wreckers
Headlong Flight (with drum solo)
Halo Effect
Seven Cities of Gold
The Garden
Manhattan Project
Drum Solo
Red Sector A
The Spirit of Radio

Tom Sawyer
2112: Overture/Temples Of Syrinx/Grand Finale

Great show as always from Rush. They really picked some good songs this tour to make sure Geddy's voice in in top form. I was really looking forward to hearing The Body Electric for the first time but i'm OK with Limelight taking it's place. The first set did need an extra hit in there to liven up the crowd a bit. The only thing I would do is move it down a few spots and maybe do it before or after Analog Kid.

All the Clockwork Angels stuff came off great live, well except for Halo Effect and The Garden which were completely snoozers. Halo isn't that good of a song to begin with and even with the string ensemble it doesn't have any buisness being played at all, let alone at every show. The Garden is good but was really lacking any punch to it live. The studio version has some life to it but the live version just doesn't. Something is off with that song live until Alex kicks in with the solo. Everything else from the new album came off flawless and it was cool to hear the string ensemble play along with that stuff live, even if I didn't realise there were that many string arrangements on the new album anyways. Maybe if the production on it wasn't so muddy I would've noticed.

Oh yeah, I got one of the shirts that Neil shot into the crowd. It actually hit the guy in the row in front of me right in the chest and he had no clue what the hell it was. Neil very quietly snuck out and shot them from behind his drum kit. You couldn't even tell he was doing it, if you weren't expecting it. The shirt landed between the seats and I noticed nobody picked it up. So after the show I waited for the row beneath me to clear out and I went down and found it

The front of the shirt has Neil in a graduation cap and gown making a really goofy smile. The back of it says "Neil Peart shot this shirt at me, I feel smarter already"
