My guess is Tom Sawyer. Then, they proceed with the rest of Moving Pictures in album order. That would be pretty kick ass.

I think that one's been played to death in the past couple of years.

This being the "Time Machine" tour, I'd love to see Time Stand Still as an opener.

For clarification, "hit" = HIT!  

ie - a song non-Rush fans know, a radio song, a concert staple.  Meaning fewer than 10 of those in their catalog.  Not One Little Victory, Time Stand Still or Roll The Bones type songs.

It has not! They didn't play Roll The Bones on the Snakes and Arrows tour, and thats the only Rush tour I've seen. So I'd love to see RTB this time. But Time Stand Still would also be pretty amazing as well!

I'm going with TSOR. As much as I've heard this song I still think it's a true Rush classic and a great energetic song to open a show with. I also think the Analog Kid would be agreat opener.  1022.gif

They will open with 2112-Overture & Temples.

They need to retire Dreamline, Natural Science (switch w/Jacob's Ladder), Between The Wheels (switch w/Enemy Within), One Little Victory (Ghostrider!).

They shouldn't bring back Bravado, Red Sector A, Force Ten, Driven any time soon.

SoR is an awesome song live.  I absolutely love it.  And for 30 years Ive enjoyed raising my hands up and clapping with 15 to 20,000 of my fellow Rush fans (and, of course Sir Dirk) during the chorus - its a highlight of every single show.

  2.gif 's biggest "hit" was New World Man which reached #21 on the top 40...doesn't seem like the kind of song to start a show with though.
