Agreed 100% about Van Halen, their show was awesome with Dave being the weak link. And nice on getting Hang 'Em High! I have no idea how the guy's vocals became so bad though, he sounded badass on the 07 tour. We'll see with the upcoming Japan shows if his crap vocals were only for the last tour or not.

The opening night of the Clockwork Angels tour
An Evening With Rush
Date: Friday, September 7th
Venue: Verizon Wireless Arena
Location: Manchester, New Hampshire
Attendance: Not completely sold out, but damn close to it. I'd estimate it at around 9,500.
Ticket cost: $96.00

Aside from Rush being Rush, I gave this spot #1 because, up until this point, I had never been to the opening night of a tour. It's so much more exciting not knowing what you're going to get on the setlist. Especially from a band like Rush. After this show on my original thread, a ton of people bitched & moaned about the lack of 70s material and heavily leaning on the 80s material. Unless they detune everything (like they've been doing with 2112 the past few tours), you won't ever hear anything before Permanent Waves from Rush again. Geddy simply isn't comfortable singing that material anymore. I don't discriminate when it comes to Rush. I like a lot of the 80s stuff just as much as the 70s stuff, so I was jumping for joy at a lot of the selections on this glorious evening.

Awesome list of shows, all of those were either tours I saw or tours I wanted to see. I know what you mean about opening night being especially exciting, the atmosphere for the Maiden opening night in Charlotte was unbeatable.
6/17 - Meshuggah
6/28 - Iron Maiden - Bergen, Norway
6/29 - Blaze Bayley - Bergen, Norway
7/1 - Iron Maiden - Luxembourg
10/31 - Fleetwood Mac
