In the spirit of Between The Wheels - an overlooked classic to be played live - here are some others I've been ripping my skin off in hopes they would play.

Cut To The Chase
Turn The Page - would be awesome to see revived
Vapor Trail
Marathon - another revival in need
Totem
Cinderella Man
The Camera Eye - which they acknowledge but decide not to
The Weapon

There are a few on there I agree with.  Cut To The Chase sorely needs its chance to be heard.  I would like to see Marathon, all or any of Fear, and anything new off VT.

Digital Man.  I must add this to the list.  WOW.

Definately Cut to the Chase....!!!

I'm not sure why they have never played that song..  I'm guessing there is something about the song which might make it tough for them to play..  Maybe the Guitar Solo..     confused13.gif

And if they have to drop Between the Wheels next tour (I'm hoping they don't) then I hope they replace it with Afterimage.

Rush has so many songs I would like to hear live, but I would like to see or hear them play the full version of Fly By Night. 2.gif


I'm listening to Exit Stage Left right now and thought of another song I would like to hear again and that is Broon's Bane.  I don't know what it is about that instrumental, but it has a haunting quality to it.

NICE!!  Great tune!  It has a very personal importance.

I thought I read somewhere that they vowed never to play that song again.  Is that true????

yes.gif That would be my choice as well. "The Camera Eye" and "Anagram (For Mongo)" would be others.



























I am SOOOOOOOOOO kidding about "Anagram." With apologies to BB&B, it's still the worst song Rush has ever recorded. I still have yet to listen to the entire song!  062802puke_prv.gif

Here Again
Twilight Zone
Witch Hunt
Afterimage
Grand Designs
Open Secrets
Red Tide
Neurotica (way to go Madra)
Cold Fire
Totem
Ghost Rider
