Rush -- Hershey, PA -- June 21st, 2013

Drove 80 miles, the day after my second chemo treatment, to see one of my favorite bands of all time, RUSH! And what a show! Split into two sections, the first half was mostly the 80's, keyboard-driven Rush material and the second half was the Clockwork Angels section with a 7 person string ensemble backing them up. For me it was a perfect show, but the people around me seemed bored until the band played a "hit" or two. And the "hits" were not frequent.

The band sounded great and of course Neil's two solos were a huge highlight. My favorite song of the night had to be "The Anarchist" from the Clockwork Angels record. The string section just really brought a whole new dimension to the Clockwork Angels material, as well as the older tunes they played on. It was kinda odd to see other people on the stage besides Geddy, Alex and Neil but it sounded fantastic.
