Ok maybe this as been posted before (but don't shot me :bang bang:  I'm a Newbie here)

With all the talk about the new set-list for the upcoming Tour (R40) which songs will be played and so forth so my question would be. If Rush did a set-list from the past which Tours would it be from?

Mine would be either Moving Pictures Tour 1981 or the Grace Under Pressure Tour 1984

:rush:

Not that it would really be possible, but the Hemispheres Tour setlist would be a semi-religious experience for me lol

If Rush did a setlist from the past, let it be the Caress of Steel show at Massey Hall since that tour is such a mystery, and so we could know if Lamneth was actually played or not.

That song and Making Memories are the only Rush songs that are perpetually unconfirmed as being performed live. So much time has passed that even people who may have attended a CoS probably don't remember if it was or not. I just can't imagine a band releasing their first epic and never playing it live, no matter how successful or not the album was.

Best setlist I ever saw is a toss up between:

Signals
Hold Your Fire
Test For Echo
Snakes & Arrows 2007

All of them were amazing. Vapor Trails and R30 were also stout.

I think either Hemispheres or the Permanent Waves main tour. I like the Moving Pictures set, but I mean, really:

Permanent Waves Tour

2112 (excludes "Oracle: The Dream")
Freewill
By-Tor And The Snow Dog (abbreviated version)
Xanadu
The Spirit Of Radio
Natural Science
A Passage To Bangkok
The Trees
Cygnus X-1: Book I: The Voyage (abbreviated version)
Cygsnu X-1: Book II: Hemispheres (abbreviated version)
Closer To The Heart
Beneath, Between And Behind (abbreviated version)
Jacob's Ladder
Medley:
   Working Man (Contained a Reggae introduction.)
   Finding My Way
   Anthem
   Bastille Day
   In The Mood
Drum Solo

Though, admittedly, the Permanent Waves warm up tour, which was essentially the Hemispheres setlist with early versions of TSOR and Freewill would have been pretty wild.

Yeah, I'd have to say the MP tour would have been perfect for me had I been alive then...They stopped in my town 4/18/81 at the Mobile Municipal Auditorium...I'm currently attempting to convince the city council to not tear the arena down...too much musical history in there.
