In Springfield in '86 I remember Alex breaking a string early on, running across the stage and tossing the guitar to one tech while a second handed him a new guitar. 20 years later I was able to find the bootleg of that show and listen for it. It happened in New World Man. I also have the Marillion set from show.

Don't think I ever recall Geddy having issues with his bass or bass rig, I could be wrong?

Bass guitar in wrong tuning. No biggie, not like they were recording a DVD or anything :wtf:

I was there too. You could see how pissed he was but of course held himself together. For some reason I felt the band felt tense and forced for the first set. Maybe my memory is playing tricks on me. However, I doubt Rush mistakes or glitches would even be noticed at others' concerts.

It's no wonder he was pissed since they were filming that show.
