They're opening the 2nd set with all of Permanent Waves. 36 minutes of music that would probably take up only a third of the second set. Three of the six songs are confirmed from the tourbook, Free Will and Entre Nous never had rear screen video productions.

They're gonna do it. I'm calling it. Right. Now.

That would be awesome.  Their best album IMHO.  I was hoping they would do 'Different Strings' on the last tour to no avail.  Hopefully they've drawn it out and will allow Alex to really shred that solo.

That would be epic...
But would it have served them better to announce 'Permanent Waves in its Entirety' as a Highlight of the Tour?

It would MORE then make up for what's projected so far.

Bring it on.

I'd walk to Seattle for that too.  

A while back, maybe right after CA tour, someone here said that Rush peeks in here to get ideas for their set lists.  Judging from the alleged set list for this tour, I think not.

The setlist so far is fine except for the heavy CA presence. Which hopefully is scattered across the night, not all in one set.

I have thought this was possible for awhile now. Different Strings would be an awesome lead in to Natural Science.

You should start a "Disgusted with Rush Appreciation Society" with GeminiRising79.

I get that they're playing the newer stuff 'cause they haven't played the hell out of it unlike most of their early catalog.

But gosh, it's R40, right?

A little bit more diversity, boys. :)

I hope you are right, but all signs point to Tom Sawyer as opening 2nd set.

Heheheh, you're a smart Girl! The last thing the guys want/need is more input on their setlists. It's a big enough PITA as it is. The old adage that comes to mind: Too many cooks...
