One thing I'm curious about, the rumour a while back which I am 100% convinced is right is that neil won't have the back electronic setup and that apparently for the second set they will go back to the slingerland chrome kit he used to play and finish like a bar band. this had me thinking that the second set will be a lot of the 70s stuff giving the hardcore fans what they want. that would seem to dispel these ideas about doing mashups between old/new songs ie. hemispheres/far cry; or headlong flight/bastille.

but the rumour may have meant he will finish with the old kit for the encore? i am not sure if it is for the entire second set or just the encore. if that is the case, what songs do you think he would want to play for the encore with that kit? some of the more progressive 70s stuff certainly does not seem like encore material, lol.
From what I read, the kit is the same as the first set, just chromier. So it's really for visual effect only.

yeah i know what you mean the main kit, but the rumour was that in the second set (or possibly just the encore?) they are going to bring out is old slingerland kit from the 70s the play with.

Not that actual kit but one made to look like it.

Yes, and what do you think of sullying Hemispheres in such a fashion?

a hemispheres teaser morphing into a S&A song is absolutely hilarious. and no shit, I believe you. cause it makes sense musically and it definitely seems like something rush would do.

I can't fathom there being such fans people. Even at the Snakes show I found good use for my ass doubling as hand warmers for quite a while till they got to the good stuff. I wouldn't have ever considered not going if I had known the setlist ahead of time however... :wacko:

Except Xanadu isn't on Hemispheres.

Or was this a test, Bathory, to see if anyone was awake here?

Never mind Bathory.

Its important to remember just because they are rehearsing doesn't mean it makes the cut.. He made it sound like they would stop and start, like they were trying to figure it out.. I know Alex said they rehearsed Jacobs Ladder a couple tours back and though he likes playing it, it just didn't fit in correctly.

Yeah Jacob's ladder was for time machine tour, even neil talks about it in his last DVD, sounded like they gave it a shot in a rehearsal but said it just didn't work.

it's because far cry has that same open F sharp chord. It'll actually be a smooth transition.

and I like Far Cry :)

I like Far Cry too.  I hope they play it regardless of whether it's in a mashup or not.

If the rumor is true, they could be workshopping the R40 medley? I think going from Far Cry to Prelude makes way more sense musically.
