The Anarchist was over the top.  Monsterous!  The Garden was exquisitely beautiful with a great video.  I really like The Wreckers (with video), Halo Effect (Alex plays a beautiful lead in), Headlong Flight was very cool - Neil's little extended drum section.  Caravan was better then the Time Machine tour.

CA material sounded great!

Nothing from 2112, A Farewell to Kings, Hemispheres, only 1 song from Permanent Waves, 2 from Moving Pictures, obviously nothing from Fly by Night and Caress of Steel and only 2 from Signals = a bad setlist...

It's basically A Show of Hands II + Clockwork Angels and Far Cry...

IMO this is the weakest setlist i have seen and that is due entirely to the first set.

i have no problem with them concentrating on CA but the first set is weak beyond belief.

to me it alienates both the longtime fan and the casual newbie.

the geeks have inherited the tour................ cool10.gif

the scalpers out there are likely shitting bricks.

oh yeah, kids don't forget to buy and wear your bootleg t-shirts this time around.  z7shysterical.gif

Phenominal setlist.
The first set is the gift that keeps on giving and the 2nd set is the magic of Clockwork Angels.

About halfway through the 2nd set it was clear that the encore would be some combination of Tom Sawyer, TSoR and Overture/Temples.
By that point I didn't mind at all that we were going to be slammed by staples one after another.

Awesome show.

Thumbs up from this gal. (I like their synth era quite a bit.) Although I would have swapped "Bravado" and  "Manhattan Project" for "Chemistry" and "Afterimage." And I'm surprised they didn't do "Seven Cities of Gold," which is one of the standout tracks on CA, IMO.

Very well!

The whole concert was a big surprise. I was getting tired of the same old songs getting played tour after tour. It was long overdue for changing it up.

3 small drum solos versus one big one is another big change. Alex playing the keyboard for "The Garden" surprised a lot of folks.

That's right!  Alex did play piano on The Garden!  I forgot until you just mentioned it.

I like those 80s songs and everything, but being more of a 70s fan, it's a bit disappointing. Analog Kid though.....f**k yeah.

I'm of the mind that whatever Geddy can sing well should be in the set. Not disappointed greatly...except for Seven Cities...tough to sing though. I can live with that....

Funny you should mention that. When they played "Wish Them Well", those high vocals of Geddy's were sampled in. He didn't sing that part.
