I am way overtired today so if there is supposed to be humor in your comment I'm simply missing it.
However, my moment of snark had no intentional political under (or over) tones to it whatsoever.

For theses who like me, are excited and grateful for a new :rush:  Tour..... enjoy and have fun cos it is the last time we see our boys in action! :7up:

And for those who are so anal about everything RUSH does or do whether it's the Set-List, Stage and what not, stay home and watch old DVD/VHS or Bootleg Audio. :bitchslap:

Going to the last Rush Tour should be fun and being grateful and not worrying what YOU want to hear, last time I checked it's a Concert with a lot of Rush and casual Fans. They have to play for everyone whether it's there first time or there 100th time. Some songs they have to play because it's popular for those who attending the Concert for the 1st time or enjoying hearing it for the 50th time. As for the Set-list I think it will be 50/50 of what Fans want to hear for the last time and throw in a couple of deep cuts for the die-hard fans, but one has to remember like a race where you have to pace yourself etc... so with Ged's voice and Neil's arms, I'm sure they're picking songs that won't do damage to either of them for the 2 plus hours they'll play on this Tour and pacing themselves through out the show, So some song will make the cut for one reason or another and some won't due to there reason not to play any more.

So what I'm getting at is don't sweat the small stuff just go to the Concert and enjoy for what it is, because it's the last time you'll see and hear :rush:

As someone who is flying from Australia to see the only Rush concert I have ever and will ever see, I cannot convey enough my complete and utter lack of sympathy for anyone whining about the appalling tragedy of having to sit through a Rush gig that doesn't have a setlist personally chosen by said whiner.

Boo-hoo - you've seen the band play Tom Sawyer 12 times over all the years you've been lucky enough to see them. My heart bleeds with the injustice of it all.

Peeps on both sides of the setlist debate gotta chill a bit until Friday at earliest and really Sunday TBH.
As somebody astutely pointed out earlier there are many songs on the list we've seen that are similar lengths so they could easily be rotated.
There's no guarantee anybody will see JL and TCE on the same night (or any other combinations of songs you can think of)

By this time Friday night the first show will be wrapping up and we'll be able to have a much better feel for where the band is taking this tour.

Great point.  Especially those longer songs... they may rotate them so each audience gets x amount of "old proggy goodness" :)  Works for me.
I agree. It'll pay off if you can see them for both set lists, or they may have three. It'll be fun watching it unfold. It'll be like this:

Why should having high standards and expectations (outside of Geds physical limitation) be considered as whining? Many of u are like dogs happy to get any scrap thrown ur way and Rush takes advantage of this fact. U guys in turn are partially responsible for the compromised, schit setlists settled on over the past 10 yrs.

Wow, bullied by TM graphics.

The only place you'll ever see Bacchus Plateau is Archer.

And Xanadu is gonna take a last second miracle to see the light of day ever again.

To be able to be soothed by The Wreckers for that horror TM, well that says alot.

Without the 70s material, none of us are here, period.

No pretty TM graphics, no pretty TM stories.

Blah blah.

I know I had to take my dog for walkies when he heard By-tor and Dog Years were not in the setlist. He felt better when he heard there were two songs from Signals
