Just got home from the show and I must say that it was awesome!! Definitely better than Snakes and Arrows tour imo. The show started around 7 45 with a video of them doing some acting skit idk it was funny but weird. Then Spirit of Radio started, continuing the same set as reported earlier. The crowd seemed to die out for awhile due to the songs that they played but it picked up once Freewill started. Marathon was AMAZING to hear live.

The second set had a little ticker with the year 1974 to start off and it slowly turned to 1980 where began another video of them acting, this time trying to film Tom Sawyer video. Then started Moving Pictures, which was played flawlessly and without stopping. The Camera Eye was brilliant. Caravan followed and it sounded better live then the in the studio imo. Neil's drum solo was after and as amazing as it always is, I thought it could have been a little better but whatever. CTTH was cool, with a different ending. 2112 was EPIC as always! Far Cry seemed a little out of place to end the main set in the midst of 4 70s songs but oh well. La Villa and WM had a different start then normal for each but they were pretty good. Alex nailed that solo in La Villa =D then the show ended and they had this hilarious video with these 2 guys getting caught backstage by Rush. lmao.

So there is my review (quite crappy compared to others but oh well), to all who are debating see this show, end your debate and go buy yourself a ticket!!

Pretty good set, although I wish they would bring back "Xanadu." I love time stand still. I wonder who does the female background vocals?

Nice setlist! Of course there are songs you want to hear that don't make it, especially with a band that has such a big catalog. For me, I wanted to hear Bravado, Show Don't Tell, Resist, Something for Nothing or Finding My Way. Can't wait for August 29th in Columbus!!!!

Xanadu definitely. Also Vital Signs makes this show for me

They didn't do all of Moving Pictures except Camera Eye on the last tour. They did TS,LL,WH and YYZ last tour. Reb Barchetta was last played in 2005 and Vital Signs in 2002. The Camera Eye hasn't been played since 1982

Superconductor will probably never get played again. New World Man and The Pass were last played in 2002.

Here's the thing though since it's still light out they don't do any big stage effects until it gets dark out. So it's really a mute point.

Xanadu was last played in 2005. So it's not like it's been away for a long time yet. The female vocals on TSS live are nothing more than the original recording that Aimee Mann did on it back in 1987. All they do is hit a pedal to active the sound affect and there you go.

I hope i'm not coming off as to arrogant of a Rush fan here. It's just people are acting like it's been forever since some of these songs they're mentioning were played. When in fact most of them have been played on recent tours.

I like the set here. I'll be seeing them for the seventh time on July 23rd and I'll be getting seven songs i've never heard before live. Rush always gives you your money's worth every time.

they may never bring this back again because in an interview (i dont have the source but i know its out there) Alex said that it hurts to play the 12 string every night to play the song. so R30 mightve been the last time.
