The sound quality was a bit disappointing to me. In my experience RUSH have always had crystal clear live sound. Such was not the case at this show. It was loud but Alex was almost impossible to hear on many songs. Geddy's vocals also got lost in the mix from time to time. It may have been the venue or my location but the quality I am used to at RUSH shows was just not there. I miss that they dont use lasers in the light show anymore.

The fat slob next to me really needs to find out what soap and deodorant are.

When I realized that Middletown got the shaft, I damn near pissed myself in rage! I liked the sound though. That's just me.

Sometimes it seemed alright....it was much better in the CA part of the set. First few songs I thought it was pretty bad. When a solo from Alex does not come through clearly....I don't likey!

I thought they sounded good. Alex did seem a little hard to hear on a few but for the most part they all sounded alright. This is the first arena show they've done in Southern California in a long time, arenas don't usually have the best acoustics. Probably why they didn't sound as clear as they usually do. I thought it was a great show.

Was a great show. I think Honda Center just does not have great acoustics. Several people I talked to who went felt the same as me. Not as good of quality of sound as usual. I saw them in an arena in Las Vegas on Time Machine tour and the sound was soooooooo much better! Also, if I'm correct there were no speakers on the stage???? Maybe that affected the sound???

I was very afraid that was going to happen in Seattle but I was lucky and they played it. Don't know why they are throwing in Limelight at random but it sucks if it happens to you.

They had the pa hanging above the stage in the usual spots, I also noticed some speakers hanging in the middle of the arena though. Not sure if that affected it, shit happens though. I wasn't sure if I would get limelight or middletown, I love both. Would have been nice to hear middletown though. I wish I was going tonight at gibson.
