God, I am getting old.  That was my first Rush tour (1982), and I don't even remember much off of the setlist.

It goes beyond ticket sales too as I am guess the DVD of this tour will sell better than the last few DVD's.

You can bet on it

Psyched about the tour in general, but not real psyched about the "MP in it's entirety" announcement.  In my opinion with the exception of TCE we have heard all of these songs almost EVERY tour.  I would rather have heard PeW or AFK.  I guess I shouldn't complain.  On Sept 16th I will be in the new Consol Energy Center!!!!  I was hoping that they would beat Lady Ga Ga to open the place, but no dice.

Well they skipped over Vital Signs on the Snakes tour so I wouldn't mind hearing that. Witch Hunt is always amazing live. And would they really not play Tom Sawyer, YYZ, or Limelight anyway? All those songs are so great to hear live, no matter how many times...so throw the Camera Eye in there and it's one big RUSHGASM! 1022.gif



Oh, and I CANNOT believe people are complaining about this...f**k's sake, guys, they're touring, they're writing new material, and they're playing rare songs. BE HAPPY ALREADY! 653.gif

Would you rather have them play Rivendell, Anagram for Mongo, Dog Years, and You Bet Your Life and probably NOT make not as much dough?  tongue.gif

MP has always been well represented in the set lists since its release.

I guess I am getting old but when I heard "time machine" I was hoping for some really old tunes.

Don't assume that Time Machine means Moving Pictures.  I think many will be shocked by the predominance of "classics" this tour.  I'd bet we also get Xanadu, Jacob's Ladder, Natural Science, La Villa, etc.

This tour is going to be incredible. MP in its entirety makes total sense, because that's what a lot of bands these days are doing, they already play all of side 1 every tour anyway, Witch Hunt sounded great in 07 and 08, and Vital Signs is always good live...plus the fans have been wanting TCE forever so that will be a huge selling point for diehards.

The only question mark for me is that they have said many times in recent years that they always rehearse TCE and don't enjoy playing it live. Maybe they've had a change of opinion, but I don't know.

No assumptions being made about MP - it's announced on Rush.com!

Good points. MP does makes a ton of sense, not only because of its popularity, but because it satisfies the casual fans with the hits and the die hards with TCE and Vital Signs.

And remember all, there's only 7 songs on MP.  There will be a ton of setlist space for other classics like Jacob, which Im completely convinced we'll be getting as well.

Some people are never happy. They were born to bitch about something. We are getting a tour and a new album out of them, but that is not good enough for some people. These people can stay home and watch American Idol. wacko.gif

I was shocked when I checked my e-mail this morning.  If it were a week ago I would have thought it was an April Fools joke.

Moving Pictures in its entirety sounds like a big deal but it really isn't because they've played all the songs live at one time or another.  Obviously we're excited to hear The Camera Eye live but all the others we’ve heard on the last few tours.  To be honest I'm getting tired of hearing Tom Sawyer, YYZ and Limelight.  I'm more interested about the other "classics" that they'll be playing.  They pulled out a few big surprises on the last couple of tours so what could they play that would really surprise us?

Edit:  I didn't read all the posts before adding my reply so sorry for repeating what others had already said.

TOTALLY FREAKING OUT!  YAY!!  I'm so excited!  I damn near cried on the way to work...threw DIFFERENT STAGES on and was rockin out all the way here. 1022.gif

All of MP...works for me!  Never saw TCE live...missed it by thatmuch.  That will be a treat...after 27 years and 22 shows (or more) there's little I havent seen.

ok..so 2 definite shows...Jones Beach and PNC...possible Mohegan.

Jacob's Ladder? More stuff from PoW or HYF? This is a total longshot but all 18 minutes of Hemispheres? I guess Fear is out of the question since Witch Hunt will be played as part of MP. But there is definitely stuff they could do that could surprise people.

It's a smart marketing move though.....designed to make people overlook the fact that they don't actually have a new album to tour with.

In any case, lets be honest...that's what folk want to hear, noy eight or nine S&A songs.

However, as they are ignoring the UK, I really couldn't care less what they play.

smart financial move indeed as I suggested with the easy cash in remark.

It goes beyond ticket sales too as I am guess the DVD of this tour will sell better than the last few DVD's.

it's definitely a cash grab.  mp in it's entirety attracts the casual fan who only owns MP and only listens to mp.  anything to put the fans in the seats i guess.

I think the question is, will they be playing MP all in order, or just splitting up the tracks throughout the show?!

I think it would be cool for them to do it all in one shot...like the album.

Either finish the first set with it...or open up the second half with it. Either way, that would be f'n sweet!  yes.gif
