I'm amazed there was only one major media story on the St. Louis gig. Tonight will be different methinks

...The double neck guitar and bass came out for “Xanadu.” Yes, I’ll repeat that. The double neck guitar and bass came out! Not to mention they played “Xanadu.” The whole damn song! ...

There were several things that made the St. Paul show a unique stop on the tour, such as the inclusion [of] "Natural Science" and the tour debut of "YYZ," which hadn't been heard in concert since 1992 prior to R40.


YYZ hasn't been heard in concert since 1992?  :blink:
yeah well, that's absolutely a falsehood. It's been played on damn near every tour since MP

Not a bad review but since its his first show how credible an authority is he regarding geds voice?
Highly credible. He went by what HE heard. He was there.

Some Rush fans tend to be hyper-crytical. According to this writer he sounded great.

Im a huge Geddy fan, but I listened last night, and Geddy's voice was straining a lot, as well as diving down rather than up on many songs.  I'm perfectly fine with that... by the way, but his voice did not sound as strong as ever, thats just wrong.  In addition to Neil's tendonitis, its perfectly clear to end on a good note, and play ANY old stuff at ALL, this has to be the end.


Except it probably won't be. They have said they probably will slow down. But if you watched the end of the show it wasn't any different than the last couple years Geddy even said his usual we hope to see you again in the future thing he usually says.


And they showed 1 image after all the videos and it said R40+ they added the plus. Its a hint.

I am 90% sure we will get another studio album and 15 shows minimum.

Perhaps, and I hope its true (that they tour again). Some vocalists can hold it together.  One things for sure, many of the songs played last night will be permanently retired - he wont be able to sing them anymore, which, again, is fine with me.  A 15 gig tour isn't really doable (shows like this), the finances of touring are such that they wouldn't make the money they'd need to for a show that big on only 15 dates.

Who said it had to be spread it out. It could be only 5 venue tour in different locations of the word New York, Toronto, LA, UK, Maybe The Gorge or Red Rocks they play 3 nights at each venue. Take a week off in between. I think he sounded really good on Xanadu and Jacob's Ladder. Like I feel he nailed those and can play those even next year and the year after.

Thats more or less unsupportable from a financial perspective IF its a show like this.  No profit would would be made except, perhaps, if they played football stadii.  He didnt sound good on Xanadu, the higher notes he was straining like hell, God love him.
Something odd about the word "stadii" following the word "football"...

Yes but pretty biased. Im not sure if were looking at typical reviews or fan reviews but fan reviews or blogs have an instant pro band slant. Not that I mind of course.

From the background it looks like The Wreckers.  I seem to recall that he brought it out for another song as well, something from one of the very early albums.
