Posted 12 June 2012 - 10:25 AM

Ok.....I had run this on rushtour.com back in it's hey day. I always found this a lot of fun.

But there are strict rules (everyone together....ooooooohh) and I need everyone to respect them, otherwise the thread becomes a cluttered mess and I have no way to score these things in a timely manner.

So this is not a discussion thread. You simply post your set-list prediction.

That is it.

Here are the set-list guidelines

1) Maximum 30 songs including the encore but not including drum solo.

2) No points for the drum solo but there will be a bonus in that regards (see below)

3) You do not need to put in opening films, second set films etc. Just post songs.

4) When predicting 2112 no matter how many parts they play it is one song.

5) BU2B2 will not count towards the 30 song limit but will get scored if played.


Really simple rules.

So here is the scoring

Pick the opener - 250 points

Pick the first set closer - 500 points

Pick the second set opener - 100 points

Pick the second set closer - 500 points

Pick the Encore opener - 1000 points

Pick the Encore closer - 500 points

Pick what song preceeds the Drum Solo - 2000 points

Pick where in the set the Drum Solo is - 500 points

Song picked in the correct order of the set (not including set openers, closers or first or last encore) - 500 points

Pick a song never played live before - 5000 points for each song

Correct song in the set-list regardless of order - 50 points each song

Correctly predict all songs played from Moving Pictures - 1000 points total

Correctly predict all songs played from Permanent Waves - 1500 points
total

Correctly predict all songs played from Signals - 5000 points total

Bonus points:

100 points - for every pre-1980 song in your set list

100 points - for picking exact number of songs in the set-list including encores but not including the drum solo or an Alex acoustic melody never before heard (like the diddy last tour before CTTH). So for example if Alex plays Broons Bane or Hope or anything that has ever been recorded or released officially it counts as a tune.


Prizes:

I will award the top 5 scores with some rare interviews on CD This will include:

The entire Test For Echo premier where all three members of the band were interviewed as the entire album was premiered on live radio.

I also have a couple of In-The Studio with Red Beard CD's I will give as prizes where the band talks about Power Windows and Hold Your Fire and the making of those two albums.

And your choice of one of some various sound board boots I have. Some of those include:

Hemispheres Tour - SB Boot (The famous Black Forest boot)

Permanent Waves Tour - SB Boot (The Keil Masters)

RTB Tour - SB Boot

CP Tour - SB Boot (Live in NC)

Echos From the Stage - Full Dress Rehersal for the T4E tour on SB.




So please again. Just post your set list. That is all that is needed. This will be scored in full before Christmas and prizes will go out before Christmas as well.

Let's have some fun!

I will post mine here so you see the simple format:

I was going to make a real bold prediction and predict they play the whole record front to back... but it appears I'm not the first one who had that idea.

SET ONE:
-------------------------
1. The Spirit of Radio
2. The Analog Kid
3. Workin' Them Angels
4. Limelight
5. Faithless
6. Animate
7. Far Cry
8. The Pass
9. Driven
10. Red Sector A
11. The Weapon
12. Xanadu
13. The Trees
14. Jacob's Ladder

SET TWO:
---------------------------
15. Caravan
16. BU2B
17. Clockwork Angels
18. The Anarchist
19. Carnies
20. The Halo Effect
21. Seven Cities of Gold
22. The Wreckers
23. Headlong Flight
24. BU2B2
25. Wish Them Well
26. The Garden
27. Malignant Narcissism
28. The Rhythm Method
29. Freewill
30. Tom Sawyer
31. 2112 Overture / Pirates of Syrinx / Grand Finale

ENCORE:
---------
La Villa Strangiato
YYZ
Working Man

They've played Subdivisions a lot lately, so I wouldn't be surprised to see a different Signals tune in there.

I suspect Faithless will be left in there because there's always at least one clunker in the first set.

And the cliched finish.

None of these things I'd be particularly happy with, but if I posted the setlist I really wanted, I wouldn't have a snowball's chance of winning this contest.

Really?  No one else thinks they might split CA in half?  If they are going to play all 12, it makes sense to me to split.  The end song to Set One doesn't have to rock.  It just has to build anticipation for Set Two.  I think SCoG would be a rocking first song for the second set.  It is set up perfectly for some sort of "theatre" leading intro.  Maybe even a quick "cartoon" montage of the 6 previous songs meant for a visual context, then a short lead in to SCoG.

This leaves room to play an even number of songs before and after CA is concluded.  

Just think it would be a nice balance...

How many bands have played an entire album live, but split it in half with an intermission?

How many are as unique as Rush?

I've read that they want to include all of CA, but then I read that they want to include a lot of older songs, and they have to cut the list down, so who knows what we'll get.  I'd be surprised if we get all of CA though!

Hmm.. sounds fun

Set 1:
Far Cry
Dreamline
The Trees
The Analog Kid
YYZ
Xanadu

The Pass
(drum solo, eventually leading into..)
Malignant Narcissism

The Pass would be so appropriate after Subdivisions, and Headlong Flight is just begging for an extended jam

BTW everyone. You can edit your set-list whenever you like up till the day before opening night.

So.....don't feel like it is chisled in stone once you post it. We have time to tweak etc.

I know I will tweak mine as well.
