This announcement totally proves that Eddie Trunk has no idea what he's talking about.  :sarcastic:

Planning a tour is way different than writing and recording an album.  Maybe we'll get some new songs before the tour and maybe we won't.  I'm leaning more towards no new songs, just going by previous statements from the guys about wanting to take time off.

Now, on a more positive note, I guess I better start saving money now since they rarely come to Idaho and I will have to travel if I want to see them at all. :ph34r:
Alex has been saying a year. That's August 2014. That would give them time to cut a couple of new songs and do the tour after releasing them. Their working idea prior to CA was an instrumental album release with a couple new ones. That could be the plan again...or not.

I would be surprised by a tour with no new material. They seem to have a philosophical problem with that.

They have plenty of time to do a FULL record. Don't see the problem. If they release just two songs at this stage in the game they may never finish the record.

They surely have the time. I question whether they have the desire to spend that much time on it. I doubt it.

"We want to try and play different material this time," Lifeson says. "I've always wanted to do some rarer Rush material, and this should be a good opportunity to do that. I also think it's going to be a long tour. We just need to stay healthy until then."




Just when I was about to retire from the band..


Imo, they finally realize their newer material really isn't taking them anywhere.

They've never been to my city.  Maybe they will this time.   We have a beautiful arena with ten thousand empty seats waiting to be filled in the event that they swing by me.

I drove 10 hours one way to go to one of the shows I attended for this last tour.  Never thought I'd drive that far just to go to a concert. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Not everyone has the money to do that as much as we would love to.

They rarely come within 250 miles of me.  In the 20+ years I've been a fan I've seen them in my home state twice (and still driving 120-150 miles one way).  Closest for me is typically Salt Lake (about a 4 hour drive one way).  So, travel is ALWAYS part of the concert plans when it comes to Rush.  That's what makes it so expensive.  But, the point of a journey is not to arrive, right?  I've met some amazing people while traveling to see Rush.  I don't regret it...I'll never forget it.

I just hope that 'rare' Rush tunes aren't:
Red Barchetta, Freewill,(insert various other greatest hits songs that we've all heard a bunch but don't get every tour).  Circumstances and Entre Nous were such a treat.  I hope we get many along those lines.

Also agree with the 'short' vacation/time off sentiment.  Even if they start in March 2015, that will be about 18 months off.  In my 20+ years on the job, I've never had 18 days off in a row.  Time to get rockin'.  It's what they love doing.

Although we generally expected this, it's nice to see something in quotes from one of the band members.  Just great news, hopefully the boys will stay well and healthy (us too!) and we can have some magical nights together.

Yeah, but alex isn't going to pick to many crazy songs, for all we know he could be talking about newer unplayed songs. We know the obvious ones, the spirit of radio, and Tom Sawyer and limelight and 2112, the ones they always play. Where's are favorite setlist maker when you need him?? WHERE'S LOSINGIT2K???

Considering the Flowing: (What Alex stated about rare tracks, The Re-Release of Vapor Trails and the Debut Album "RUSH", The Rumor by Eddie Trunk, they are Recording New Stuff, The Success of CA and 2015 being the 35th anniversary of PeW) Here is my Wish/ Prediction Setlist):

41st Anniversary Tour:

Set 1:

R41 Medley (Finding My Way, In the Mood, What Your Doing, Working Man) (Rare)
Limelight
Caravan
New Rush Song (Never Played)
Medley: By Tor & The Snow Dog-The Necromancer-By Tor (Reprise) Rare
Cut to the Chase / Alt. Alien Shore (Never Played Live)
Vapor Trails  / Alt. Ceiling Unlimited w/ Solo (Never Played Live)
Open Secrets / Alt. Chain Lightning (Never Played)
Limbo - (Drum Solo #1)
Show Don't Tell
Clockwork Angels

Set 2:

The Spirit of Radio
Freewill
Jacobs Ladder (Rare)
Entre Nous (Rare)
Alex Acoustic Solo - Different Strings w/ Extended Gtr Solo (Never Played)
Natural Science (Rare)
New RUSH song # 2 (Never Played)
New World Man
The Anarchist
YYZ -(Drum Solo #2)
Hemispheres (Prelude) Rare
Xanadu (Entire) (Rare)
2112 (O/T/F)

Encore:
Far Cry
Tom Sawyer
Headlong Flight

2nd Encore:
Closer to the Heart (Extended)



I placed in two new RUSH songs cause I think they will release two new tracks sometime Early 2015 Prior to tour.

:rush: :haz: :rush:
That would certainly be a kick-ass set! I think the Preulde of Hemispheres into Xanadu is a long shot though, based on how poorly Geddy sang the prelude on the Counterparts tour

Really hoping Natural Science gets back on the set. Just that one would make it worth a long drive and expensive ticket for me....that or if for some unlikely reason they tried a Fountain of Lamneth medley...Been dying to see Neil play Didacts and Narpets

This is also time for a note of caution:  as good as much of their very early stuff is, given Geddy's voice, it's unlikely that we'll see much of their 70's material.  However, there are a number of songs that I think could be reworked to fit Geddy's style now.  Also, since the last tour was heavily focused upon the synth era, I don't believe we'll see any surprises from those albums, but we could see more of their 90's material make its return:

And so, here is my wish list for surprises to include on the tour:


Necromancer
Lakeside Park
In the End
In the Mood (it's been a while since we've seen that one)
What You're Doing.
Jacob's Ladder (I think this is now the most popular deep cut since Camera Eye was finally played on the Time Machine tour).
Heresy or You Bet Your LIfe (never done live)
Speed of Love or Alien Shore (never done live)
Test For Echo
Double Agent
Scars or War Paint


I'd also love to see them do Hemispheres in its entirety, but that's a song that Geddy really can't sing live anymore, so if it makes its return at all, it will likely be the prelude only.

I’ll be living in New Brunswick by then, so let’s hope for another Halifax show.  That’ll be a four drive.  No sweat, since I’m used to driving to Winnipeg or Minneapolis to see them and both of those drives are 8 hours.
I’d shoot a fawn in the face just to see Jacob’s ladder this time around.

I am so pumped. I honestly prefer a tour with rarities to a new album. That's partly because I've only seen them live twice despite being a fan since the late 80s. There's so much great Rush music that I have yet to see and hear live. I'm excited about this!

This is interesting because one could argue that they were already doing rarities on the Clockwork Angels Tour. So if they mean older rarities they therefore believe Geddy is up for the singing challenge, wish is encouraging.

I'd really like to see then mix up the set lists a bit more. Diehard fans will pay to see two or three shows in a row if they know they'll see an unpredictable blend of material. I know their light shows are highly choreographed and precise, as are their musical keyboard/pedal triggers and whatnot. But if they can rotate out 3-4 songs as they did during the CA Tour then I'm sure they could bring that number up to 8-9.

Can't wait for updates.

And, wouldn’t it great if they DIDN’T play Tom Sawyer, Spirit, Limelight or 2112?  I could live with that because it would cleat some room for some seriously underplayed, ultra-wicked Rush tunage.  

Would love to hear Cinderella Man… and ANY part of Lamneth, even just an instrumental section.

As for "not-so-rare-but-it's-been-a-while" stuff, I want The Trees back in the set. I really missed that one after not hearing it since the 2nd leg of the S&A tour.  Same goes for Xanadu. Please for the love of god play Xanadu, I don't care if it's even only 75% of it like on the R30 tour, that version kicked ass anyway.

<dragon intro video>

One Little Victory
Freewill
Working Them Angels
Subdivisions
Afterimage (RARE)
YYZ
Animate (NOT SINCE R30)
Clockwork Angels
The Trees
Cut To The Chase (NEVER PLAYED LIVE)
The Enemy Within (RARE)
Countdown (RARE)
Secret Touch

<intermission>
<video>

Tom Sawyer
Test For Echo (RARE)
Red Barchetta
Cold Fire (RARE)
Distant Early Warning
Natural Science (RARE-ish)
Headlong Flight
Drum Solo
Different Strings (you know the drill, Lerxst solo acoustic, then extended at the end) (RARE)
Xanadu (RARE)
La Villa Strangiato (complete with Lerxst rant)
The Garden (if it can be done without the strings, otherwise skip it)
Working Man (none of that reggae BS)

<encore>

Far Cry
The Spirit Of Radio
Crossroads (COVER SONG)
Limelight

:D

That first part ain't happening.  There's still those audience members who only know those 4 songs (and YYZ).

And I like hearing those songs live...regardless of how many times I've heard them live already.  At least they're 4 great songs and it's not like going to a Maiden concert to hear Run To The Hills almost every time, which really isn't that great of a song.
