Comparing Queensryche to Rush is like comparing In n Out to Benihana. They're both yum, but one is in a whole other league of godliness.

I see some are complaining about the set length but a number of those songs are quite long. I put them all in a playlist and it was 1:20:51, which isn't all that bad you know.

That said, a longer set would be awesomer and would include Before The Storm, Deliverance, Neue Regel and Screaming In Digital. :-)

Is it too short? Yeah, a little, as in like 3-4 songs. That would be more than enough. I honestly don't WANT to see a "METAL" show lasting over 2 hours, I can't sustain the energy and excitement for that long (onstage or off), especially given shows being GA with support bands. Anything under an hour and a half is probably too short for an accomplished band with a lot of music under their belt because you just can't hit all the material you should, but yeah, I don't bitch if bands play 90-110 minutes - to me that's ideal.

Yup. The set wasn't sort at all. Maybe on paper it is, but in reality it's a decent size length.

The set was 90 minutes flat. There was almost no downtime at all, so the set felt like a good length.

Not compared to Iron Maiden.

My angle is, I'm not gonna pay $50+ for only 90 minutes. The tickets for the nearest QR show for me right now are $56 (partially because they're playing with a bunch of 80's hair like Skid Row & Vince Neil ) but still, 90 minutes is a bit short. They could easily add another 10-15 minutes of their "less than metal" numbers and maybe acknowledge that, for better or worst, (and fuck it, if we're talking Promised Land, easily for the better) they did continue writing material past 1990...

Iron Maiden outnumbers Rush two to one And Bruce isn't burdened by a bass guitar. I think those two things figure prominently in any "energy discrepancy" between the two bands.
