Both The Colbert Report, and The Daily Show that precedes it, are hiarious and very inciteful shows.  It's really the only way I can handle hearing the news on TV and the only way that some truth manages to get out between the lines, at least on TV.  The fact that Rush has chosen The Colbert Report to play on is BRILLIANT! yes.gif

I mean, I wish they were playing Far Cry or Armor & Sword instead of their most well known song ever, but what can you do?  Why they're playing a 27 year old song instead of a new one hardly seems the way to turn people on to their current material, but I'd rather take that then nothing.  This is gonna totally rock! yes.gif  1022.gif

Yup, I agree with what you say Goobs. Both are great shows. And why, oh why, Tom Sawyer?  So many other great and newer songs. As much as I'd like to hear the two S&A songs you mentioned, I think it's very doubtful. They will play something people know them for.

I wonder how it will sound. Usually the bands on TV are mixed really dry, or not mixed correctly at all.

I wonder if they will use the South Park intro. That would be funny....

Maybe an interview?

How exciting! That just made my day.....

It would be cool if Steven Colbert makes a "RUSH" (Limbauh) reference, (as he does ocasionally) and then out walks  2.gif (even Neil).

Then they could chat for a little while before they play.

Not the best song (not my choice), but definitely their most mainstream, most radio played piece, that connects to the masses.

It would be fun if they played 'Big Money', in this election year, and make a little statement.

If any band does an extensive soundcheck for TV it will be Rush.  I'm sure it will sound good.

I am wondering how much room they'll have.  Colbert's studio looks kind of small.  

Also been thinking about what gear they'll bring.  I'm guessing Alex will have one or two half-stacks set up.  If Geddy brings a chicken roaster the band may spend most of the interview explaining why   tongue.gif

I wouldn't be surprised if a Rush Limbaugh reference is thrown in, as well.

This is too cool.  We'll be staying up to watch it on the big screen with the surround sound cranked.

I'd rather a newER song, but at least it's nothing off Snakes.

It's already bad enough that they're on a shit show like Colbert's.



Damn you're an unhappy person.

That is so, not a true statement!


Not true? Which one did they miss because I don't know of any?
