Is the second set potentially the best set Rush has ever played, top to bottom?

The 2nd set was Awesome! PW or Hemispheres tours might have a better set list.

Meh.








:lol:



It was incredible, and a heck of a way to go out!  Got to share it with my long-time RUSH buds from the Northwest, which was great fun.  And Jacob's Ladder...  :drool:

The section from Narural Science to 2112 was the best they'd done in years. Jacob's Ladder still gives me chills. And that light show was the best ever. Howard was at the top of his form.

I would go with the Hemispheres setlist.  It certainly has the advantage of being from the era where there was only one long set and thus gets the benefit of not being one of two sets from a show:

Anthem
Bangkok
By Tor
Xanadu
Something For Nothing
Trees
Cygnus X1
Hemispheres
Closer To The Heart
Circumstances
Farewell To Kings
La Villa
2112
Working Man
Bastille Day
In The Mood
Drums

If it was perfect to my liking, they would have cut out MMB and the VT song, ended Set 1 with Moving Pictures, opened Set 2 with Spirit of Radio and then (finally) have La Villa after Jacob's Ladder.

Yes. First time I saw them do an extended set of 70s material since MP tour (back then it would have been difficult NOT to!).

Next tour came Signals - the comedy and overall goofiness - and focus on their synth material live. Gone was their edgy and heavy live sound . A rather long wait, then 35 R40 shows later, history written. That's what made their first ever lack of a second  leg disappointing, they FINALLY featured an extended set of 70s material, ONLY because it was their last chance to do so.

This is a cool idea. And it works, as TSOR can shoulder the set opener status. And set one therefore ends with even more crowd energy than Subdivisions provides, and that is saying a lot.

Best set I've ever witnessed. Been 2 years now and it still moves me to recall.
